    Has anyone got any idea how to best get the discs out of the Battlestar Galactica cases in the epic series box-set? I am afraid of bending and breaking the discs. Also, how much bending can a DVD take before it is effected 'long-term'. I think these 'tight fitting hubs' are a pain in the ass!!!! [​IMG]

    Lift the disc by its edge while pressing down on the hub with your forefinger. They pop right off for me.

    I had trouble with the first disc getting it out, and was nearly panicking like you. Just follow those above instructions and eventually it should be fine.

    It is stupid packaging, I will grant you. To me, it's the only blemish overall in the whole set (along with wasting space for the preview trailer for the descration "remake")

    Time to get out those AOL freebie discs and start popping them in and out of those 'cylon death grip' hubs to wear them down a bit. That should make things a little easier.

    At least they don't "float", like the Babylon 5 discs! [​IMG]
