|You're much better off to get a clone replacement DVD drive - they're available for a reasonable price on the web. |
You search with something such as : (make and model) replacement DVD drive
to find one that will physically be compatible with your model.
The XP (and 2000) CD cannot recognize most models, if not all models, of USB optical drives.
If that applies in your case, even if you manage to boot the XP CD from a USB optical drive, all you get is a blue screen.
There is a method of installing XP when you can't load the CD contents from an optical drive, but you'll need access to another computer, and an adapter of some sort to connect your hard drive to another computer.
You probably can't run a Repair installation of Windows procedure if you use that method, only an installation of XP from scratch.
