CD storage

Home  \  Off Topic  \  CD storage

Well I've got about 200 cd's and I'm getting sick of putting them in my many cd wallets, anyone have a good way of storing them all in one place? It doesn't have to be portable.

Don't worry about the cd jewel cases, they're all on shelves, I'm just talking about the cd's.

What you could do is transfer them all to either

DVD Disks (what I'm doing now), and use 5 times less cd's, or
Another hard drive, and keep everything on there, then you could also delete stuff, and put in new stuff...:2cents:

Lol, and then they wouldn't work on my car cd player, home cd player, discman, etc. :screwy:

I found a 264 cd holding binder thats $45 CAD at Best Buy. I was hoping for something less portable, and more organized...but I might go get that.

I wanted something like this:

Except it only holds 60 cd's.

So I'll probably end up getting the binder:

Thanks for the link (I managed to click it before the authorities arrived, phew).

Unfortunately, while they have a way bigger selction, the jumbo cd wallet is still the cheapest and most practical. :banghead:

I'd go with the wallet too then, and it's pretty portable...

I kinda wanted something stationary that I could integrate into my living space. The wallet is bulky and not attractive, thats the problem.

I don't plan on having the selection of 264 cd's in my car anyway :laughing:

Am I way off the mark by suggesting you put the cd's in the jewel cases:laughing:

Heh, well that does sound logical, but I move my cd's around way too much, and its just inconvenient.

I GOT AN IDEA, mp3 discs, rip all your cd's and put em on mp3 discs, can hold about 100 each, there u go,

I agree with this one here. definatley go with a mass storage device like an iPod. they can hold a hell of alot of music and pictures and videos. if you cant afford one of them, theres always the option of a 10+ gig flash drive. the biggest one i have seen was about 260 gig. that will hold alot of music:thumbs:

I don't think he wants anything like that, because he wants to listen to this stuff in his car, and on his diskman and stuff lol.

you can use it in the car (just get a tape with the little cord comming out of it and plug it into the ipod, i do it all the time) and it compleatly replaces the diskman:laughing:

Lol, Chris is on the ball.

Besides, they're too expensive.

And I can't use mp3 cd's because non of my cd players support it.
