Recent Additions to Jason Scott’s Archive of CD-ROM Scans

Jason Scott has been updating his 2,500+ image archive of ‘CD-ROM Scans’ here on Flickr. Here are some recent gems:

Kids these days would be shocked to learn you had to insert a CD-ROM in your computer to get “internet”:

Compuserve - WinCIM 2.0.1 - MacCIM 2.4.3

Or that Internet was charged by the month or hours in your package, whichever came first:

CompuServe - For Those Serious About Internet Online - 100 Hours Free (U998R1)(1998)

This CD comes with Internet, and also Netscape Navigator:

EarthLink Network TotalAccess Internet (Earthlink Network)(1996)

This one is great – because the operating system finally ships “With USB Support”:

Microsoft Windows 95 With USB Support (Microsoft)(000-59944)(1997)

The software on this disc “requires a standard Web browser”:

Axis Network Camera CD-ROM (Axis Communications) (2000)

Or remember when drivers, sometimes just a few megabytes in size, required an entire CD to ship with to power the device:

Nvidia Riva TNT2 MG4 - Install Driver Ver 1.0

I never played this game, but wow:

Mall Maniacs CD-ROM (UDS)(Addgames)

I totally forgot about ‘software of the month’ clubs:

Software of the Month Club - December 1997 (Volume 244) (Business Shareware)
(domain printed on the disc is currently for sale!)
