Does anyone who had a subscription to the CDs remember what the software (app) was that could be used to read the included catalog of all the CDs released so far (and/or the company that made it?

I have forgotten the name of the software although I remember that I bought it to use to catalog all of my CDs, floppies, Jazz drives, etc. -- and I can't find the package where I stored my old Inside Mac Games CDs (and my old Mac running OS 9 stopped working :( so I can't check the HD for it).

This was a long time ago (I think before Mac OS X) when Inside Mac Games would send out a CD with Mac game demos, freeware, updates, and stuff to people who subscribed to these CDs.

Also, does anyone use something similar that works on a Mac (just in case that company no longer updates/makes the app .

Thanks for any info.

DiskCatalogMaker or Delicious Library?

Thanks for the suggestions. :)  I don't think either of those were the one I was using (that I found on the IMG CDs), though.

It could have been DiskTracker. Or there was another one called CDFinder.

I didn't see any catalogue files in the few CDs I just checked from the 90s. The e-zine got cut/went online-only around 2000 or 2001, I think, and then IMG started doing the separate subscription of a monthly(?) CD — which I think is what you're referring to. So you'd probably want to narrow your search down to cataloguing software from the early 2000s (and thus probably available for early versions of OS X).
