down load cd on dell all in 1

Forgive me if I am in he wrong place--I am new at this and barely past the how do you turn this thing on stage---unfortunately when I purchased my Inspiron all in 1 I failed to research it properly and did not know I could not down load cds---ie music and printer--my question is can I purchase an external media card reader that will read a cd and load it into my computer?

Please always include exact PC model and version of Windows in your posts.

I gather your system doesn't have an internal optical drive, so your best bet would be to buy a USB DVD drive that can read and write both CDs and DVDs.

USB2 optical drives are relatively inexpensive and USB3 optical drives (faster data transfer) are somewhat more expensive.

Shop around for the best prices and buy a known brand from a reputable website or store.

You can find tips about choosing a drive from some of the results in this Google search.
