    Following Quick Start instructions, I installed the product from Disc #1.

    A stale version of the software was installed that could not be updated even with help from CNG Support.

    Loading the 6 image discs on my hard drive was predicted to take 60-90 minutes per disc -- it took 26-28 hours per disc on a Windows XP desktop computer that was doing little else.

    Many of the product's features were not activated.

    There were no instructions for installing the 2010-2011 image updates on Disc #7.

    As a last resort, with a suggestion from CNG Support, I uninstalled the Disc #1 application and re-installed everything from Disc #7. Voila! The correct software version was there, all features were now active, and the 2010-2011 image update took less than 20 minutes.

    I strongly recommend that you update your Quick Start instructions. Needless to say, I was close to returning as non-usable a product that is really quite impressive. However, with its many features, it's a challenge to figure out how everything works without even a rudimentary users manual.

                                My wife complained about the shelves full of NG, so I switched to the digital edition and bought the complete 1888-2009 DVD set. It works brilliantly and I wish for updates for the more recent years in the same format, even though I already have access to the digital archives. I was surprised by the excessively long time it took to copy to hard drive, but at least that only had to be endured once and the result is brilliant.

                                    National Geographic presents the ever-anticipated finale to the 2009 National Geographic Bee, moderated by Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek. Eric Yang, of Griffin Middle School in The Colony, Texas, triumphed at the annual competition during a tie-breaker round with this question: "Timis County shares its name with a tributary of the Danube and is located in the western part of which European country?" The answer, Romania, came with a U.S. $25,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society, and a trip to the Galapagos Islands with Jeopardy! host and Bee moderator Alex Trebek. Yang competed against 54 fourth- through eighth-grade contestants whittled down from nearly 5 million students from around the country.
