Excerpt from the Review found at
John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an American ornithologist best known for his extensive bird drawings and paintings published as "The Birds of America" (1827-38). During the last years of his life he worked in collaboration with naturalist Rev. John Bachman on a book about North American mammals.

The Multimedia Audubon's Mammals CD-ROM by Creative Multimedia Corporation contains the complete text of Audubon's "Quadrupeds of North America" (published 1842-54) and includes over 150 full color lithographs of mammals by Audubon, mammal sounds from Cornell University's Library of Natural Sounds, and text by Audubon and Bachman. An introduction by the authors describes the geographic range of the survey as "Comprising the British and Russian possessions in America, the whole of the United States and their territories, California, and that part of Mexico north of the tropic of Cancer." Audubon and Bachman go on to state that "A considerable portion of the country to which our attention has been directed, is at the present period an uncultivated and almost unexplored wild, roamed over by ferocious beasts and warlike tribes of Indians.

Multimedia Audubon's Mammals uses the same DiscPassage search engine found in a variety of other CD-ROM disks (Monarch Notes, Family Doctor, Great Literature, Shakespeare, Multimedia Darwin, and Sherlock Holmes on Disk.)

Multimedia Audubon's Mammals is contained on an ISO-9660 disc and includes both DOS and MAC search programs.

Hybrid CD-ROM for PC & Mac.

Basilisk likes to crash when you quit DiscPassage application, but works fine otherwise.
To get the CD-ROM recognized by DiscPassage, you may need to write-protect it, either in your host operating system or within the emulated Mac OS system.

This is a Mixed Mode CD-ROM, which means, the data track is track #1, while track #2 is a musical audio CD which can be played using every Audio CD player.

Hybrid CDs are not easily handled it seems. With a lot of help from Protocol_7, I found it best to make BIN/CUE images of it and "waste" a CR-R to create a real hard copy. Still emulators do not seem to play those CD-Rs as they are not aware of the audio part. A real Mac is needed to my knowledge, with the CD-ROM audio output routed to the mobo. (This excludes my 7100 for example)
Simple audio CDs seem to play with emulators depending on host, Quicktime and CD-Player config.
I confirmed that with an old Miles Davis audio CD.

I can't get the CD-ROM section 'Selected Mammal Sounds' to work. It says it plays the call, but I can't hear anything, even on real Macintosh hardware (PowerBook 190 (Mac OS 8.1), Pismo (Mac OS 9.2), PowerBook G4 (Mac OS X 10.4.11 in Classic Environment).

But you can simply play the Audio CD part with your favorite Audio CD player, either hardware based or software based (remember, track #1 is CD-ROM, track #2 is Audio CD).

In my environment, emulators don't want to mount the Audio CD image.

Works fine with System 6 up to 9.2, including Classic Environment, but
Mini vMac may require a separate CD driver software installed, if you plan to mount .cdr images like this one within System 6 or 7.

Mac OS 7.5, installed within Mini vMac, mounts CD-ROMs fine w/o the need of separate CD driver software. Althought, emulators can't handle Audio CDs?

The hybrid CD-ROM partition of the original media is basically based on the same data structure and file structure, except the application for Mac, which isn't visible on the PC partition.

It took me one and a half day to create the .cdr image of the data partition. I had to use Toast's Disc Recovery functionality to create it at all, which took so long.
