Anyone have some advice on storing discs on their own without a hardplastic holder. A tower case system with multiple 'cupbords' holding filling wallets would be great maybe up to 1000+ discs?????

I see this on TradeMe:

and could be a good start so any advice would be great! Cheers Morris

Hi Morris

I use a Imation Disc Stakka.

http://www.imation.com.au/products/disc_stakka/index.htm

It can hold up to 100 disc and if you want to, you can stack other Stakkas on top of it to increase your storage.

It connects via usb and the discs and contents are recorded on your computer so you can search for files on them.

You can't access data on the disc in the stakka, you have to eject them and put them in your DVD/CD drive.

It records the removed disc's details when you eject them and is great for keeping track of who you have lent them to.

The only problem I had, was that I keep the disc stakka's cd in the unit and my computer crashed.

I couldn't get the disc out to reinstall the software, so I no longer store that disc in the stakka.

I think they are about  $200 and I have found it to be very usefull and a great way to keep track of my DVD/CDs.

Cheers Paul.

I have two Disc Stakka and these are really good - get them before they are gone because I read somewhere they are now discontinued.

By the way, the manual does say somewhere to not store the Disc Stakka CD in the unit itself, just in case you need to reinstall. You did RTFM, didn't you ;) ?

I think my manual was a PDF version on the Cd in the unit?
