Re: Unwanted DVDs without cases

There isn't much of a market for them outside of auctions on eBay or listings on Craigslist, with the caveat clearly advertised.

Most collectors still want the case unless it happens to be an extremely valuable or rare DVD.

"Unwanted" pretty much sums it up.

Of course, the original owner should be prosecuted for being so neglectful to them.

If even Alan Smithee doesn't want your DVDs, you have lost all hope.

I usually just toss the unwanted discs, like 3d discs and used digital copy discs, in the recycling.

Understood on the digital copy discs, but you could keep the 3D discs for one of us or a local friend with 3D. We'd reimburse you or more.

I don't toss the "useless" discs.

The only times I've ever removed a DVD or digital copy disc is to replace it with a store exclusive bonus disc that came in an envelope, like the Best Buy one for Inglorious Bastards or the Target exclusive that came with The Avengers.

I don't suppose you have a list? I could see buying an alternate version of something I already have to make my own special edition.
