How do I scan X2?

    I use DVD Profiler to catalog my discs, and I usually do my own cover scans, ever since DVD Empire started putting copyright logos over their scans. However, I have not been able to get a good scan of X2 because of the metalic type cover. I'm hoping someone can tell me what I can do to get a good scan. Thanks

    You might try taking a snapshot with an offset light source. Got a digital camera?

    I don't know what size or quality you need, not being familiar with DVD Profiler, but could you use Amazon's scan?

    They don't have the back. I think DVD Empire usually does. They might put a watermark over it, though.

    I haven't seen the actual cover so I don't know what it should look like, but I've found that Laser's Edge usually has pretty good scans that can be used in Profiler. However, it looks about the same as the Amazon link provided above.

    Full-size scans for DVD Profiler are 500 pixels wide, so those won't really work. I'd recommend the digital camera. It's a pain in the ass, but it's the only thing that seems to work well.
