Hi Harry. Welcome to justanswer.
You don't have to pay anything extra for the CD. Just tell me which operating system is there in your computer. Windows 10,8,7 etc or Mac OSX?
Since canon did not issue any drivers for windows 10 but says that the driver for Windows 8 will work. So you can download the driver (contents of the CD) from this link. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD
Just run the downloaded file on to your computer.
And there are other software present on the cd which can also be downloaded. If you want I can install it in your system
VISIT THIS LINK
Click Drivers and Downloads then select Windows 8.1 and click software. You will get the list of all the printing softwares present. Just download them on to your system and install all of them
Thanks for the ratings
