    Title:
    How to install on a netbook when I have a cd/dvd
    Content:

    I bought dragon naturally speaking for my full size laptop but I cannot use the laptop much because it is too heavy for me. So I now have a netbook but the netbook doesn't have a CD/DVD drive.

     

    How do I install the software?

    Keep in mind that your netbook may or may not be powerful enough to handle NaturallySpeaking because it draws heavily on the resources.  If your netbook includes a dual core processor, you will still want to avoid creating a Best Match IV user profile, even though NaturallySpeaking will probably suggested it. We recommend creating a new profile based on Best Match III which you will find under the Advanced button during the new user profile process. Now onto your specific question…

    Simply copy the contents of your NaturallySpeaking installation DVD to a 4 Gb or larger thumb drive. Unless you have a USB 3 thumb drive and a USB 3 port on your netbook, it would be best not to install NaturallySpeaking directly from the thumb drive. Create a temporary folder on your desktop, copy the contents of the DVD (thumb/flash drive) to that folder and double-click the setup.exe, with the green flame, to install.

      I found that my Dell netbook with an Intel Atom processor and 2 GB did not behave as well as my regular notebook with dual core and 4 GB ram.

      When I reinstall Dragon 12 on my small notebook, any other suggestions in addition to the Best Match III option?
