In 2013 Apple decided to stop producing MacBooks with CD-ROM. Only MacBook released in 2012 and older have it. It means if you are using MacBook that is released after 2012 you need an additional device to open a CD or DVD.
If you are going to open a CD or DVD using MacBook released in 2013 until 2017 you can just simply plugging in the CD DVD external drive into your MacBook, but if you are going to open a CD or DVD using MacBook released in 2018 and later you must use an additional tool called converter adaptor.
Actually, there are various brands and various ranges of prices of CD DVD external drives. You can purchase it in any online marketplace you are familiar with. But, since you are going to open a CD or DVD in your MacBook, I suggest you use a CD DVD external drive from Apple to prevent any issues while installing the device on your MacBook.
Connect CD or DVD external drive to MacBook > Insert CD to the drive > Finder > Click CD icon twice > Once you finish, open Finder > Right-click the CD or DVD’s name > Click Eject
