    Have you ordered many DVDs from this place before? If you have, that might help your case. If that doesn't work, I guess you could write a nice letter to the studio thoroughly explaining what happened.

    It's almost like getting ready for the S-E-X and finding out that there's no one else under you... [​IMG]

    What has the store to gain by NOT believing you? You tell them, they send you a replacement and a mailing label - you return yours and they send it back to the studio.

    If the store doesn't take your word and doesn't help you, I'd avoid using them in the future.

    I had that problem twice before. One was for Cannibal Holocaust and there was no disc and no shrink wrap! I emailed the contact guy at the online company I ordered it from and he sent me my disc ASAP! Also, I ordered the COSMOS box set from another online company and it was missing the last disc. Again, I contacted them via email and I practically had the dvd before I got off the phone. I don't think you'll have any problems getting a replacement disc.

    By the way here were the two online companies:

    LMV.com

    DVDplanet.com

    Slightly O/T. Has anyone brought a box set and discovered that one of the disks was bad? Wouldn't that be a mess sending them all back, especially if the singles were not available?

    That would never happen to me and i'll tell you why, I can tell by...
    #1. The weight. For some strange reason I have a very unique ability to tell if their is a disc inside the case by the weight.
    #2. The sound. If you slightly shake a dvd case, you can kinda hear the disc shifting on it's hub inside.
    I would have known it was empty before ever opening it.

    This has happened to me once before too -- I took the empty case back to Best Buy, where they looked at me skeptically for a moment, but did let me exchange it for another one.
