    How do you store your DVD's

    Hi,
    i read that you save your dvd's by storing them in sleeves rather than cases, like they come when you buy them.
    Did anyone store their dvd's like this or do you just store them in the case?
    Because i am thinking to store them in sleeves. Its also a spacesaver.
    But whats your opinion on this?

    I store all my DVDs/CDs in books I have like 5 100 DVD Books filled up. It would be way to hard and unorganized to store them in there cases.

    I store them in proper cases.

    When properly inserted in the case, absolutely nothing is in contact with the data area of the disk.

    If you use a sleeve, the disk is sliding in and out of a sleeve, with lots of contact to the data area.

    It doesn't take special degrees to figure out which one is safer. One little piece of grit makes it's way into a sleeve, and the disc is ruined.


    As far as I'm concerned, anybody who says it's safer to store DVD's in sleeves than in proper cases had to have gotten the idea, directly or indirectly, from somebody selling sleeves.

    Now, IMO, the very best way to store your DVDs is to rip them, store the movies on your hard drive, and only pull the actual discs out of the case when you want to watch the bonus features.

    I store them in a box in the roof, so that wee people don't trash them. They've all been ripped onto my network.

    Actually that is what i am doing. All my dvd are also on the harddrive and i watch them via xbox.
    But storage is also a concern for me. Thats why sleeves sounds not to bad.

    May i ask what you do with your old cases? Just curious.
    My plan was to put them in to a sleeve and put the cover in a storagefolder and essentialy toss away the original case.

    Sleeves. About ten years ago I bought a bunch of boxes and sleeves from Univenture. They work great, take up little space and when I got burgled several years ago, the thieves overlooked them. But I imagine that eventually they will wind up in the basement next to the crate of LPs.
