Isn't it a hundred dollars?  I may be wrong as it was a while ago that I looked at it, but I know the price was what stopped me from getting it.


Edit:  If I didn't have all the magazines I think it would be a good buy.


But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

I'm quite satisfied with this purchase .... the only problem that I've personally encountered is that my 4 year old lazer printer (for some reason that I'm yet to discover) doesn't recognize the print format ... so I'm unable to print out any of the contents of this disk (which is somewhat of an anti climax)

Wow. I know this isn't what you thought when you bought it, but can you copy and paste to a document and print from that?

There isn't any option to select, copy and paste :(


I could try speaking to Xerox but to the best of my knowledge, I have their latest driver for this printer installed already.

Really? You can't highlight and copy?  They really have it in a box!!

You win some, you loose some ...... I only started  subscribing in the 60's so now I have over 60 FC magazines that I'm able to read on my computer ....which is absolutely great.


The interface allows one to look through the contents of each magazine as well as search certain subjects which is a nice feature.  So I'm not sorry that I purchased the disk.

Poke around with your file manager. The files are PDFs and are not protected. They have simply put a fancy user interface on top of it. You'll be able to print out the PDFs. On my computer (PC), they are located here.

There is no copy and paste. I just click on the printer icon on the toolbar. Works for me. Is your laser set for text only? It is trying to print out one big picture.

Yes, it took me a long time to discover that about PDFs.  ;o)
