The PCVA-IR8U is a USB infrared receiver. It allows you to connect external devices to your computer wirelessly via infrared, which works best with short-range connections. Compaq laptops run on a Windows operating system. When installing a USB device on a Windows computer, a CD is not needed, as Windows will locate and load the necessary drivers for you.
