Database software recommendations please

I hope someone on here can help me, or steer me in the right direction. I need to find a software package to create a database thats like a library, and able to have the info burned to disc and read without the actual software.
I hope that wasn't too cryptic.
For example, say I want to create a database about cars, have photos, specs, be able to add & change data fields to reflect common variables, such as top speed, or year of manufacture, etc. I then want to be able to burn it to disc, so that on any computer (pc, mac) you can put the disc in and access the information, be able to look up details, search by name, year of manufacture, etc. and maybe even have other features such as a quiz, eg it shows a photo of a car and multi-choice 'name that model' type of stuff.
Am i dreaming that such software actually exists? I will pay, i'm not worried about that so much. I've been trawling thru database software, but they all seem to boast that they can do pie charts, and sync with iCal. (oh yeah, i am also using a mac, but will borrow a pc to create the thing if i have to).
Any help would be much appreciated.
