    The past couple CDs I have had were in these cheap, gay, paper slips instead of plastic cases. They have tears on them now. I also Have a DVD in a paper slip instead of a plastic box.

    Mentioning the site by name isn't allowed so the logo is a no no too.

    You know... If I ever learn guitar like I want, and make music, that is going to be the only way to get my albums, torrents.

    You've been abused?

    It doesn't help that they make the CD/DVD's out of the softest plastic available either. You just look at them wrong and they get scratched. The cases for them ought to to be made out of something other than shatter-plastic (that's what I call it). It would also be nice if they could get the cases to properly hold the disks too. Some have you practically breaking the disk to get it out of those little clips, others won't hold at all and let the disk flop around in the case, further scratching up the disk. Then you have your spindle packs.....100's of disks with no cases.

    I remember this one place had some disk cases that were made out of a more flexible plastic...sorta like the plastic of a 2 liter bottle, but thicker. THOSE were nice cases. They didn't shatter, crack or split with the least little impact like normal CD/DVD cases do, and they had cases for 1 to 4 disks made that way also.

    I bought a few of them, but they don't seem to carry them anymore. Wish I would have bought more of them.

    take better care of your stuff, the companies assume you take better care of your stuff, im a pack rat so I keep everything mint, do the smart thing get a cd case and toss the case it comes in in a tote int he attic. I keep my games in one big bundle while my cases are set neatly on a shelf collecting dust.

    get a cd binder and put all of your cds in there in order by Genre and alphabetical so you can find it easier or you can simply do what most others do and buy then put up after you rip them and put them on an MP3 Player, they were expensive back in the day but now they are a dime a dozen (if you buy cheap chinese knockoffs)
