When one goes mobile with one's CD's...

..one should be delicate in transporting said discs.

I've decided I'm not going to carry my CD's around in a carrying pouch any more. It's bad for them. It scratches them, even if they are tiny scratches. I'm from this day forward going to take in their jewel box the discs I want to carry. And carry like 6 jewel boxes around with me in my car. I've put too much money into my CD's not to take the best care of them possible, and I don't want to have to replace any of them simply because they were scratched in the carry pouch.

Neat, huh?

and if you're carting around huge binders, you have to be really careful you don't leave them anywhere.

When I carried them in cases they got broke. When I carried them in binders they got scratched. I think leaving them in the car in all kinds of weather damages them. I don't mean in the hot sun, even under seats and in the trunk. All mine skip now even the Creed cds damn!

Whenever I carried my jewel cases, they would get cracks, split, and fall apart at the hinge. So now I use my soft-sided 100 CD case.

Scratches on CD's are great. It's like hearing the remix version of you're favorite albums for free!

Right On, and if you have good enough scratches, an hour long cd will play for days, it actually prolongs your listening pleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasure skippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskipplea sureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasureskippleasure....

The best thing I ever did....bought a WMA-compatible deck for my car. On the average, I have about 17 CDs burned onto each disc...yes, one disc holds enough music to make it from Florida to New York without changing discs.... To give you an idea, I have Boy through ATYCLB, and every CD single from With Or Without You through Electrical Storm(omitting occaisional tracks that are repetetive like multiple remixes, etc.)...on ONE compact disc. Now, granted, it was a project and a half converting everything(some I had to re-do because they were "protected") to Windows Media, but it was well worth it, plus the $220 for the deck. It was basically my vacation money, which I never took, so it was worth it! Now I have about 10 total CDs with all my music(all that I want with me anyways...)...and I can just re-make any CDs that get scratched. Do yourselves a favor.....rid yoursleves of bulky CD books and convert everything you own!!!

(only downfall...you can't play these on a regular stereo at afriend's house or anything...just a computer or in your car )

i once burned myself a copy of a certain springsteen album from the library's copy. i ended up with a 1-track, 80-minute long version of 'born in the u.s.a' that got stuck during the first chorus. guess i deserved it for trying to score myself a free copy of the album

CD transportation is the main reason I still don't have a CD player in any of my vehicles. If I'm going on a long trip, I'll use a portable and plug it in through the tape deck, but otherwise, the daily wear and tear on the CDs going from car to house to work and back isn't worth it to me. When I do take CDs somewhere, I just keep them in their jewel cases. The cases can get messed up and broken, as long as the CD stays safe.

I'm moving out of the province soon and I'm trying to figure out how to get my cd's across the country. I'm thinking about putting all the cd's in a CD case and sending the empty cd cases ahead of me via mail. and take the actual cd's with me on the plane.

I just wanna make sure I AT LEAST have the cd's if the cases get lost

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.
