    I cant believe this has been going on for so long. If any of you would have done a search you would have seen that this woman will open your box for free, all you have to do is pay for the ammo.

    I can't believe you are trying to open the box YOURSELF! You need a professional to open that box and I have just the person...ME. Simply take your box with the DVD Writer in it, put into a bigger box, tape it up, put MY address on the outside, and ship it to me. I will be glad to open your box that contains the DVD writer in it by using my professional box opening tools. I will then test your writer, put it back in the original box, put that box into another box, FOLD the second box closed, and ship it back to you.

    Now doesn't that sound easy? Better than trying to open that pesky box on your own with box security breathing down you neck. Who knows, box security may have alerted the RIAA or MPAA about your activities. One of those organizations may at this very moment be trying to bring criminal charges against you because one of those organizations may own the copyrights to the box YOU my friend are trying to open by yourself without express written consent!

    Just let me know if you need my services and I will be glad to assist you.

    Well I really didn't want to help a newbie with such a SIMPLE task but I can't stand it no more.

    There are many software programs that you can use to open your box. One of the most popular is BOX2OPEN and of course there is InstantBoxOpen 7.0 (8.0 is in beta though some claim to have the retail version). Let us not forget BoxXopen and BoxXopen Express. These are all PAY programs however you could try the FREEWARE program OpenBoxShrink which actually shrinks the box until it explodes but hey what can you expect for a FREE program?

    However if you want to do it the best way possible forget all the software mentioned above. Although they WILL open your box QUICKLY they will not do it with much quality. So to do it the right way you need a program called OPENBOX4U. This program is FREEWARE however it requires that you have BOXScenarist which only costs about $2,500 but once you have that program you simply download OPENBOX4U and follow the guides on the doom69.org website and there you go.

    Your box will be open the way it SHOULD be open.

    - John "FulciLives" Coleman

    *** EDIT ***
    My apologies. When using OPENBOX4U you will need the $2,500 BOXScenarist as well as CCBOX 2.5 which is around $1,500
    I'm sorry but this is the only way to open your box with true quality.

    Last night I made some tests with different boxes and found the following:
    some of the boxes could be opened with a box opener (which is set to all boxing-regions codes (BRC)).But some boxes seem to BRCE (boxing-region code enhanced), which means, they can only be opened with the opener set to the correct BRC.
    I.e in EU you can't open boxes from US or China.
    A further issue: with most boxes you have to circumvent an opening protection scheme, which should prevent the unauthoritzed ripping of boxes.I think, there are some box openers to be found, which have this ripping tool attached.

    Go to ebay:
    They are selling a lot of boxes these days.
    Some are empty, some are not.For your purpose, an empty one will do.
    If you want good quality, ask a friend.He can give you his box and you can make a copy (but you have to install your box writer before, which comes of course in a box).

    And you stupid ones can't even count:it were 120 seconds.

    I just downloaded a bunch of boxes from Uselessnet. And they are all burner and apps boxes! Even found myself a double super secret platinum key for my box cutters. I am now all set for anything. Even found some really big boxes that I could like ship myself in, but those haven't finished the download yet. Woo Hooo

    @Fulcilives

    Why are you bothering with all that payware, you could use BoxRipper (v2.41) and rip the box in 'Burner' mode, however you don't get all the manuals, etc then.

    Or you could follow the advice that actually is the best way: assuming the burner is NOT multi-format then you could use BoxDecrypter which will rip your box in 'All Contents' mode, this way you can then use it to produce an EXACT copy that is open - its the standard way, don't know why people keep asking all these questions.

    IF it is a multiformat burner, you need to rip first with BoxDecrypter and then use something like BOX2ONE or BoxShrink (v3b5), these will produce an almost perfect copy of the box (open of course). However there will be some loss of quality, I think what will happen is that your 4x burner may only then burn at 2x, but the difference is negligible. There are some clever options in BoxShrink under 'Re-Construct', that way you can select the burner only (and not lose 4x burning) and not the manuals.

    In the end pick a way that suits you and enjoy.

    Anyone need any help let me know,

    Jukka.

    This is all well and good and I managed to open my first yesterday! Cheers for the tips! :c)

    But, now I'm stumped. That was a single layer box. What do I do about a dual layer box. :c*

    Can I make it fit into my newly opened single layer?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use BoxShrink for this task.But beware, if you want to preserve the same quality, you'll need to split the box into two.

    Thanks, Dragon. Is there a guide for a noob for that? :c*

    Mack - aren't you developing some sort of tool for that? Thought I saw it mentioned in LOTS of threads. Maybe I'm mixed up?

    This goes against my principles since as I said before you should leave it in the box but here are a couple of tips:

    I must warn you that using my methods voids the box warranty.
    8)
    I give my boxes to my dog to open but this trick may not work for you because my dog is a ..... boxer.

    Any toddler (under 3 years old) will open that box for you and quickly discard the contents because their prize is the box and they aren't interested in the content. Caution! Be ready to catch it when the toddler tosses the writer aside. Do not! I repeat. Do not try to take the empty box away from the child under any circumstances.

    P.S.
    If this is a plain wrapped parcel then ignore my second method since it is illegal in most countries to give certain material to anyone under 18 and the content may be highly objectionable. Ignorance of the law is not a defence.

    If all else fails you may want to provide better specs for this box. Your problem is not uncommon but as you can see the solutions are varied depending on the dimensions of the box, it's principle material composition and other charateristics. Labels affixed to boxes are known to throw them off balance and render most box opening schemes ineffective. Please provide more details.

    I hope that this is not your problem but I recall one stupid noob took a screwdriver and pried a cd writer from it's metal case and then wondered what to do with the inards. What a mess but I got it back together again... er... I mean so I am told, he got it back together again.

    I have nothing to add, no other advice to give. I just want to say I'm laughing myself silly reading this thread. I can't tell you how much I needed a laugh today...I appreciate it so much.

  25. WARNING!

    Do not try the hachet opening method on a printer box!
    I got my printer yesterday. I think Fedex was trying to be nice to me, help me avoid this boxing delima by using the ax method and thus save me the effort.

    It did not work! Yes I mean both the box and printer!
    They only succeeded in opening a couple small areas of the printer box!

    I had friends over for a small party after the printer was delivered. They are a small band. They are an Un-rap band. Somehow they opened the box for me. I didn't see how they did it though. I was busy out in the yard shooting up!

    Took 3 shots, but the cat is out of the tree now!

    So anyway, the printer is out of the box. The front paper loading rods are out the case on one side
    The printer does not work!

    The cat is fine!

    Ps.
    I was not shooting at the cat, only the tree above the cat, thus chasing it down the tree.

    i would like to point out that while setting fire or taking an axe to the box of a dvd burner may surfice this method is not recommended for opening your childrens christmas presents as whilst the contents may be fine the box will be completely destroyed and the kids will have nothing to play with ...

    No one has asked the most important question? Is you box + or - ? You guys might be using the wrong boxcutters if you don't know what format it is! You might ruin the poor guys box and then what would he be left with...?

  30. Hey.

    Found this highly informative thread today, just wonder one thing.. What does AXE got to do with this!? Do you spray it on the box or what?? Personally im kind of a Hugo Boss fan, but Chanel is ok (on a girl. hehe). What it does on a box i haven´t checked yet. And also i..

    Hey!!!!! You´re talking about THAT kind of Axe!!!! Gee sorry :P

    In that case... Hmm.. Let´s see.. First off, never do apply an axe on the box, you might damage the box and render it useless! Also if you do it the wrong way the warranty on the box is pretty much out of the window.

    So instead, Order the burner and instead of axi´n the box make someone chop both your arms off! Then when the delivery guy sees you he´ll most likely offer to open the box for you. This is great since you won´t risk your life and limbs like if you would have gone with the dangerous "boxcutter" method. The delivery guy will have to take the risk!!


    Hope it helps.
