Register Your DVD!

How many of you actually register your dvd's?

I haven't done this yet but I'm curious about how actually works.

I'd do this with every dvd...if it would mean I would get a replacement or complete refund, should the dvd fall apart in 5 years. otherwise....it would accomplish what?

Get your name on a mailing list so they can send you junk.

I just got a replacement case for a DVD just by asking- don't have to register anything.

Never heard of that concept before. Who offers it, and what the heck is it for? Just sounds like a way for a company to make some more bucks. It doesn't sound like anything I'd ever think of using. I don't even register software or electronics, I can't imagine registering hundreds of dvds!

But, yeah, what is this all about? I'm more curious because I think I will laugh when I hear the idea behind it.

The only DVDs that I have encountered with this are Disney DVDs, and I think they require you to send $5 or $10 to get a replacement.

What happens if the discs go out of print?

When you access the Bonus features on your dvd's there sould be a section that tells you if you want to register your dvd's. I don't know how many DVD's have this but I'm begining to check them all.
---------------------------


Register Your DVD

and become eligible for:

-The disc replacement program that allows consumers to replace a damaged dvd.

-DVD technical support

-Notification of special offers and updates and other titles

-Simply insert this disc into a computer equipped with a DVD-ROM Drive and Internet Access

Then click on the register button on the bottom of the player window.

You may also register on-line at (Depends on what DVD it is)

Kinda like DVD insurance? Hmm with so many re-releases I don't think you'll have to worry about not being able to find a replacement.

I thought that Disney did that so you could get replacement discs even if the title went OOP. Who knows if thats true, though?

No DVD-Rom drive, so I guess I can't play.

When I get my new Comp with that drive, I will probably register them depending on cost. We shall see.

Why register? It's not like it has a serial number that identifies your copy for support or services in the future.
