    Bubble wrap? You got ripped off! Don't you know that you are really just paying for the box? The things inside are worthless. Metal and plastic junk is all, the box is the real thing you need.
    Hope is the trap the world sets for you every night when you go to sleep and the only reason you have to get up in the morning is the hope that this day, things will get better... But they never do, do they?

    You're rigth:
    The medium is the message!

    Bubblewrap is cheap media and won't work with professional equipment.
    And if you are in PAL-land, don't ever use NTSC media (or vice versa).
    These are different media formats (like + and - Boxes) and won't fit into your storage (or you must buy NTSC/PAL multi storage).

    There's a dvd writer in the box?

    I was wondering why the salesman gave me a box with the picture of a dvd writer on it. I thought the writer itself came in the mail with my rebate check. (A short 8 week wait.)

    I hope I didn't throw the box away!

  6. Ok I'm a noob so be kind,

    Force the disc in! Don't be such a baby! Try folding it. If it's too brittle soak it in gasoline 'til it becomes squishy.

    Go for it. What do you have to lose?

    After reading all the responses to how to open a box, I did a little research on the DVD makers sites, including Sony, Pioneer and NEC. I found that they had plenty of help on how to use the DVD recorders after the box is open, but nothing on how to get it out of the box. I am soon faced with this same problem as I am going to be ordering a new DVD recorder. I want to stay legal and use the correct tools so that the MPAA and the RIAA and the FBI and others wont come busting down my house like they did with Gazorgan. I know that I will have the box X-rayed to make sure the writer is in the box before attempting to open it tho. Maybe I will get lucky and receive the recorder in a zip lock box. Those I know how to open.

    You hear about the guy that shipped himself from New York to Dallas in a box because the shipping was cheaper than the ticket? He actually made it through every security checkpoint (even making noise) until he came to DFW International, where he was caught.

    Was about a month ago.

    Yes! Saw it on TV. All he had to say for himself was, "Yeah. That was stupid." :cD

    And correct, you can ship yourself cheaper that airfare. Fedex is about $110 for the first hundred pounds, and then a penny a pound after that.

    Where can I buy a box big enough for a car. I'd like to see the Fedex charges on that. A penny per poun ain't bad when the box is a few tons. :P

  14. Maybe you've downlaoded the Nimo BoxCutter Lite version... download the Adware version...preferably 6 Beta 1.3A. Comes with free guides and warez for advanced Boxcutting tools such as CCBox Plus... but i found those boxes to have extra tape... can make your box look really ugly, but all that matters is getting it open, right?

    Do not try to open the box. That's impossible. Instead, realise the truth. There is no box.

    Now watch the MPAA come after me for unauthorized transfer of their movie content.

  20. Get the DFW guys to open the box, I guess they must have opened that mans box, so they should be expirenced

    I did not here about that, but I don't watch TV, or listien to the radio much either. Actually I seldom even read a paper. I just come to DVDrhelp for all the news I want to here or care about

    Hmm, is there any REAL law against shipping yourself? I could use a vacation, any of you live near a good shipping point I could come visit awhile?

    How about you Village, we could mod some printers, get the box opener ready. AND PRACTICE before I get there

    Hmm, does fedex give frequent fliers miles?

    Since there is a waiting period to be able to post questions, I'll bump this now. The questions should start rolling in any time now
