35 Year DVD-ROM to IPad?
Posted by SMEAC on Friday, December 13, 2019 7:01 PM

I've searched both the Kalmbach FAQ and then here on the forums with no luck thus far on my question. But, I figure if any folk know, you all would; and besides, many of you were instrumental in making the 35 year collection of Scale Auto Magazine a reality for us all to enjoy. 

Question is: Has anyone discovered a way to place the collection Upon their iPad, Nook, or Kindle yet?  I would so very much more so enjoy my collection if I could use it on a tablet. I understand the reason for protections against those who would be so nasty as to pirate, but Adobe is MORE than capable of handling protection/encryption protocols.  Thank you in advance for your responses!

S/F, Gunner B

The DVD has a built-in app for viewing them, but the actual files on the DVD are PDFs.The app has an option to copy the files to your HDD so you don't need the disc. Next step would be to copy them to your device. The only issue is they are copy-protected so you have to view them with the app.

Maybe Kalmbach should consider having the viewer available for IOS and Android, but i'm not sure how they'd implement ongoing copy protection. (i assume the same system they have now)

If the CD ROM is just a collection of PDFs and is not locked, you should be able drag and drop the information in the DVD drive onto your PC. The PDFs themselves may have security, but you should be able to access the folders and files individually from there.
