Sherlock Holmes on Disc

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k x86 (Windows)

This is a hybrid CD-ROM created for PC DOS and Macintosh.

Basilisk likes to crash when you quit the 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.

Please keep the image, because it is the same publication. What I've uploaded, has been originated from a 4 CD collection similar like this one: Amazon.com/The Classic Collection + but with a different cover and a different publisher.

Added an image of the CD cover, but the publisher is different (but same as in the Amazon buy link). Should we keep the new pic or not?

Could someone who actually has the mac version of DiscPassage just make it available as a separate upload?

This is, what I planned, though.
Here is it, now: http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/discpassage

Having trouble with this and the Shakespeare on Disc image.

The mac partition is not mounting. Tried it under both 9.2.2 and OSX using toast and disk copy/disk utility. Only the PC partition is mounting.

Could someone who actually has the mac version of DiscPassage just make it available as a separate upload?

Thanks.

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.
