Anyone who has it. Did you find that Disc III is really hard to get out from the case?

Still playing disc 1, but Good God, I can't get it out-



After reading your posts, I gave it a try, and I thought the disc was gonna snap in two! Managed to get it out undamaged, though, thanks to my magical miniature shoehorn.

NP: Disc one

P.S. I've neither seen the film nor heard any previous incarnations of the score, so this is truly a virgin spin, and so far, it is GLORIOUS.


Disc 3 was a pain to get out.

I still can't get it out- I'm afraid I'll break it.

sometimes on these tuff ones I push down the middle and it comes out fairly easy , then I put it in a different case , Im not fond of the clam shell cases so I usually put the disc in slim cases just my preference smile cant wait to get mine smile

Steve, you can borrow our magical miniature shoehorn. I'm dispatching the winged unicorn. Send her back with some Texas bbq and a sixer of Lone Star.

I finally got it out by pressing the center and twisting the cd, but now I'm leery of snapping it back in.

I won't be getting mine for a few days, and I must admit I'm a little jealous seeing all these posts. Does anyone have some great pictures of the set to post?
Or is it better to keep it a surprise to someone who has not seen it yet? :-D

Not only that, I pulled the back cover inlay out easy, but because of the screwey design of the 5 disck layout. I can't get it back in. Wouldn't you know? Just my Goddamned luck. I'm going to demand a new case first thing Monday. Just ridiculous.

I can't get the album plastic sleeve back in place. It popped out when I reversed the back cover art. Fuck.

Will somebody show me how to fix this damned thing?

Trying to fix it, the hinge broke. I am furious.

I had a little trouble getting Disc 3 loose too. Eventually got it and I quickly backed all five discs up on my computer to mp3 for eventual transfer to my Walkman mp3 player (also got round to backing up the two "Quo Vadis" discs from the Treasury as well).
