I have a Dell computer that has vista 64 installed in it. I am unable to install any programs from a disk. My computer doesn't recognize there's a disk in the bay. On the rare chance it does recognize there'a a disk in the bay, it thinks it's blank and wants to format it. I specifically, am trying to install MS Office Home and Student 2007. I don't even know if it's compatible with vista 64. I do have the option to change to 32 bit, if needed. I have some word and excel documents I need to open asap.

Thank you for any help you may offer.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
