This is the newest CNG to date and is very easy to install. To check for updates you go to go to Preferences and follow the directions as listed. Also check the box for "automatic update". I would recommend this to anyone interested in the happenings of the world from 1888 - 2013. The price is very reasonable for what knowledge you will get in return.

Slow to load load even when installed onto a 1 TB SSD external hard drive, as I was hoping to use on any of my two Apple laptops, but after hours of loading on the SSD only works on the original laptop. when trying to run on the second laptop keeps asking me to insert cd 1 every time I want to run the program. Which is not possible with the new apple with only the one USB C connection as this is being used by the SSD. Even on original laptop slow to load so not fun to use. Once up and loaded works OK. But was hoping that once loaded on SSD external HD would work on any computer that had setup installed.

Comments about The Complete National Geographic DVD-ROMs: 1888-2013 Edition:

Updates aren't ready when they should, I bought the 1888 - 2010 version, I had to claim and e-mail NG before 2011, 2012, and 2013 updates were ready to download. The only solution they gave me was to buy a CD with the 2010 - 2013 updates, but I already had the 2010 update, and I didn't want to pay again for an update that I already bought with the rest of the numbers. Furthermore I live in Spain and I didn't want to pay for custom taxes, which I wouldn't have paid downloading the updates. Only when I claim here in this page and advised people not to buy The Complete National Geographic because they don't keep their promises, they put the 2011, 2012, and 2013 updates ready to download.

Now, once again, I am / We are in the same situation, we are in March 2016 and 2014 and 2015 are not ready for downloading. So if you want to update your product, even though it's really interesting, I don't recommend buying this product, at least if you don't want to wait a long time for the updates.

Hope updates will be ready soon.

Wonderful Geography/Politics/History Lessons!

By JerzeeTomato0109

Comments about The Complete National Geographic DVD-ROMs: 1888-2013 Edition:

It's great going into the past & reading about 19th-20th Century expeditions -- something one couldn't do before unless one was proposed as member by an existing member. These aren't just articles, maps & illustrations: they are the past come to life. ...And to realize that National Geographic was at the vanguard of wildlife conservation and protecting global cultural treasures is awe-inspiring. It will probably take me a VERY long time to go through it all, but what a treat!!

Don't expect help from Nat Geo

By Depressed at service

Comments about The Complete National Geographic DVD-ROMs: 1888-2013 Edition:

When loaded didn't give the EULA to agree which opens the discs up for searching.Contacted Nat Geo tech dept. Waste of space they couldn't advice or top get it working and would only offer refund.Not only that but my original 1888-2000 CD version now doesn't work either since install overwrote it and it will not reinstall. For a technical department they are nothing short of an excuse and do not want to know. They said the disc wasn't faulty since they had tested it. How they tested it when it was over 3000 miles away in the UK is beyond me.

Overall completely dissatisfied and certainly wouldn't recommend.

Comments about The Complete National Geographic DVD-ROMs: 1888-2013 Edition:

I had to call customer service as the DVD-ROM sent to me only was from 1888 to 2010 not 2013 as advertised. Customer Service did send me the 2010-2013 DVD-ROM with no extra charge for shipping.

DVD-ROMs 1888-2013

By Waterwoman

from Beaufort, SC

Verified Reviewer

Comments about The Complete National Geographic DVD-ROMs: 1888-2013 Edition:

I bought it to find articles about the Lemon Island Marina in Beaufort, SC because I know that 2 were written between 1990 and 2006. I contacted Nation
Geographic to find the dates and they told me that there is no digital index.
This seemed a good solution. I unfortunately cannot find them and have even gotten help searching. We found some other kinds of interesting local articles, but not what I wanted.
