The Acrobat cataloging technology adds enormous value and uncommon functionality to this impressive collection. These DVD-ROM discs are for use in a computer DVD drive. The files can be accessed from the File Explorer in the same way that you open files from a CD-ROM disc; the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM formats are functionally the same, but the DVD has more than six times greater storage capacity. Of course, this disc cannot be “played” in a DVD player connected to a television set. It contains computer-formatted data.
