Gutenberg CDs & DVDs

Over the next few days I will be downloading all the Gutenberg DVDs and CDs. I developed a sudden need for text files to make into ebooks for my Sony Data Discman.

If anyone who can't download the disks wants me to make a copy and mail it to you, send me a pm. This is only for the DVDs and CDs that PG won't mail and the offer is only open to people who can't access the files.

If you can download the disks but can't burn a CD or DVD: There is a program called WinRAR which can extract the files from the ISO disk image file.

P.S. I'm not charging for anyone in the US. Outside the US the shipping will be much higher, so I have to charge postage.

P.P.S. Please keep this quiet so it doesn't cost me too much.

An assortment of archive utilities exist that can read ISO files and extract the content.

My preferred tool is a free, open source product called 7zip. 7zip can create and extract 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR files, and extract RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, MSI, WIM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS files.

The 7zip engine is also used in the open source JZip and Peazip archivers.

WinRAR is the only thing that will create RAR archives.

There is already a project like this... Check http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenb...stom_CD_or_DVD

Google 'torrent Gutenberg'... You will probably find few old CD/DVD versions.
if you create one more version, just put your new torrent in tracker - http://www.utorrent.com/torrent.php

Not everyone can download the CDs and DVDs. I know a couple people who are still on dialup.

That is a very decent thing to do.
