How to download app to install disc drive?

My son was just given a computer with Endless installed. It has no cd rom so we are trying to download the driver for it. When trying to extract the file, we get an error saying, sorry we couldn’t run xyz on endless. You can install applications from our app center. What the heck am I doing wrong???

Under normal circumstances, you don’t need to install any driver on Endless OS (and most other Linux distributions too). You are probably trying to run a driver installer intended for Microsoft Windows?

What hardware does not work as expected?
