National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Got a question. A  few years ago I bought the NG on CD package and the Supplement Maps on Cd collection. Now they will not open on the newer computers.  Any ideas? I know everything is on the internet site, but it would be nice to still see these CD's when not on the internet.

Their certificate is time stamped - can't remember the end date.

If you change the date/time on your computer to read earlier than the publication date on the cd package, then upload the cd's, you should be O.K.

The last DVD update was 2013 which included the year of 2012. I had a computer crash and the only way I could upload the NG DVD's was to change my computer clock to read 2012. Then after the upload I changed my clock back to the current date and everything worked/s fine, albeit, no data after Dec 2012 - you must access the online NG database for that information.
