I am trying to access Grolier and encyclopedia Britannica from my Performa 6200 disks on my new Imac.The new Imac system OSX does not recognise these disks.Is there any way of getting the Imac to work with these disks?

I don,t want to throw out 40 disks just because I have upgraded my system. HELP some one!!!

    You have to be kidding me. Solution? Throw out the CDs.

    They are so out of date as to be worthless anyway surely? Wikipedia is the modern alternative.

    You can get a new OS X compatible version:

    Isn't 40 disks a bit annoying to search through anyway? The new DVD ones will be much easier to use.

    Wikipedia is not a reliable source of information! Any idiot can insert their version of a fact.

    Not anymore. And anyway, a 10 year old version of Britannica will be more wrong and outdated then even the most pathetic article on Wikipedia.
