It is the reason why I have a car CD changer. OK, I can only put 6 CD's in them (so I have to change it about once a week), but I have no hassles when I'm driving. The CD's are safe in the back and I can concentrate on my driving instead of trying to change discs. I never want to have it any other way.

C ya!

I burn copies of all my favorite CDs--the ones that I love to listen to in my car, that is--so that I never have originals in my car. In all I have about 20 CDs in my carrying case, none of which are originals, and none of them skip yet. When I first started doing this I figured it would eventually get out of control, but I found that I get obsessed with 2-3 CDs at a time and I can listen to those in my car for months before feeling the need to burn something else.

i keep my CDs in a cd carrying case in my car. I have two, a regular soft one and one of those one's that go on your visor. I always leave them in my car, so i don't have to worry about leaving them anywhere (just about my car getting stolen). I do most a lot of my music listening in my car cause i spend a lot of time in it, and I have all my cds recorded into Realplayer so i can listen to them in my house. I don't treat my cds that well, but they never seem to get scratched bad enough to make them skip.

I just take them in the jewel cases. Which is a slight problem when I have a seven hour train journey and I need lots of music...my bag ends up being full of CDs and I can't fit in my clothes or my toothbrush or some other necessity.

I feel really embarrassed now about how I handle my cds.

Don't get me wrong, I am careful, but now I feel like a bad mom or something for putting them in a cd album.

Best thing I ever invested in is an in-car mp3 player - I can burn like 160 songs onto one disc - brilliant - totally gets rid of the fear of people breaking into my car and stealing my precious cd's. Next is to get an ipod - then I'm totally in business

I dont use the cd book/carrier things. I've had 3 friends get them stolen.

One of my friends lost about 300 cd's out of one.

I keep them in the cases they come in and never leave them in my car.

Safety first

I pretty much do what joyfulgirl does, that is burn cds of my favorites to take with me. And I also tend to get stuck on a limited number of cds at any one time, so I really never take too many at one time. I do miss the cover art and the liner notes though, but then again, I shouldn't be looking and reading while I'm driving now should I?
