    don't buy HERE

    Barnes and Noble does not stand behind this product. Many of the manufacturer products were not created correctly and Barnes and Noble is sending out these ERROR COPIES. BUY with the knowledge that both disks in the packaging may not work and they WILL NOT take responsibility for good customer service and replace anything.
