    Hi guys, new on the forum here, so please go easy. I have purchased the Complete National Geographic Collection on 6 DVDs, it is astonishingly good! I think it would be perfect thing to read on my iPad 2 however, I have no skills or experience in converting such formats. This being Adobe air, to PDF? The NG box set runs on Adobe air. Making the entire box into PDF would be ludicrous, but maybe an issue here and there to sit and read comfortably. Has anyone successfully achieved this? Is it even possible?

    Cheers guys.

    Dig into the folder structure of the dvd and figure out what raw format they are in. They might already be in pdf format. It might just be as simple as dragging and dropping.

    Hi Calidude, apologies for the late response, I've been in a bike accident and in hospital for a while!!

    Unfortunately the files are not PDFs, rather .cng

    Any help?

    Most likely they are encrypted in some way, similar to the Rolling Stone collection. You should be able to export them by opening an issue, selecting Print, and then choose the Print to PDF option (which really just saves it to a PDF). Good luck!
