Transferring VDL/KP2/NI from PC Laptop to MacIntosh OSX Mavericks

I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro, 16 GB, Intel Core i7, running Mavericks; I would assume plenty of tech specs to support VDL, KP4, Sibelius, and then some...
Anyways, I successfully transferred data from my PC laptop to this MacBook and unregistered/Registered all my Sib, VDL, KP4, and NI information; including successful Custom Installation for VDL/NI/KP4. My Demystified DVD unfortunately can't be used on the new laptop and has been rather glitchy when I play it in other DVD programs - I tried using this DVD to help answer my questions.
My long question: When I open Sibelius and try to use VDL I receive a message telling me, ";Sound Samples Missing";, and all the typical protocols show up for where I can search and how I can search for the samples. I'm pretty lost when it comes to what I need in order to find these new files; I tried downloading the updates from the ";tapspace update"; page but am still struggling to get the samples to show up. Here's what I do know about what I'm running - maybe someone can help:
I remember that my setup for my previous computer was rather thorough and the demystified dvd helped me tremendously - now, the overwhelming feeling of a new format and transferring all my products has been rather frustrating - especially with having just this one problem. It seems most, if not all, of my sound samples are not found and I only see one .nkx file in my Tapspace folder - I thought having that in the folder would help like the update page said.
If your computer does not have a DVD drive, then you will have to figure out how to get the DVD files onto it. I've heard that these drive-less computers have a way of borrowing another computer's drive, but that's something you'll have to consult your computer's documentation about.
Hope this helps!

Hi Joe, Have you tried using VLC player to play your dvd files? Also, if I'm not mistaken you can just copy your large .nkx files over from your previous install if you don't have access to a dvd player, assuming the files are there and complete. The update that Murray was talking about is only $15.00 I think so not a bad option and you can buy it as a download. hope this helps, Joe
