Got it. It's a DCR file. Let me research and ask my friends.

 

Edit : I got this.

Maybe you would like to send me the file and I can try to extract the image...

Thanks. All I could find was that it's some type of Kodak file, but I can't find anything that will open it.

Okay, so while record hunting in Vegas, I came across several of these. I bought some of the 1984 and 1987 versions since they were the earliest ones there (sadly, not the June/July ones from 1987). I wanted to know if anyone had any for sale, or knew anyone that was selling them. I know that you guys are talking about scanning and preserving them/the CD Rom (I didn't really read this thread thoroughly. But I'm just trying to find out more about them.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

I have to say I'm very ashamed I haven't tried to extract the pics. You need a special software but I think I found one. I'm going to give it a try. a-hard-days-night-john-7

He has the actual magazines now. Don't bother.

All of them, the original 1963-1969 issues, or the reissued ones from 1977-2003?

I've got a complete set from 63-69. The majority are originals, though I suspect a few are reissues (the condition is too good). I bought them off eBay from a guy who bought them first-time around, and replaced a few that had gone missing over the years.

I was wondering if I could call on the collective wisdom of you good people. On various parts of the web there are download files for the all 77 editions of Beatles Book magazine (eg http://octaner.blogspot.com/20.....d-rom.html, or search beatles book rapidshare/megaupload for more).

Unfortunately these involve burning the files to CD and accessing it as a CD Rom, which is pretty archaic technology nowadays. Does anyone know of a way to convert the CD Rom files to pdf or simple text/image files? If so do let me know.

I tried the first link on the octaner blog and they no longer work. I'll try your second suggestion now. Years ago I bought a cd-rom of the Beatles complete BBC recordings which are also obsolete now.

They have been getting uploaded periodically over at the Bootlegzone forum but the links will be long dead - which isn't much help really.
