User's description: Meant to hold 40 3.5" floppy disks, but will do just as well with MD's if you get rid of their plastic jackets (otherwise you can't put 40 MD's in the case and still zipper it shut). It also comes in 10 and 20 disk capacity sizes.

Availability:
18" X 17" X 5"

Description: Holds 250 MDs (in their jackets), 50 per row, 5 rows wide. Black finish, recessed latches, removable lid. Colorado Sound N' Light, 7301 N. Broadway, Denver, CO 80221, (303) 429-0418, Fax 429-1242, or email Jim Baxter csnl@ix.netcom.com. Major credit cards accepted. Customer support: 1 888 429-0418.

User comments: Very durable construction, idea for mobile use (DJing, etc). Unique MD holding system uses the standard MD jackets placed upside down in rows with an insert that raises the MD from the jacket so that it may be easily grasped. Heavy and a bit expensive, but recommended. -eaw

Ferrero Rocher Chocolates PackagingChocolates Packaging~$3.50
Availability:

Description: Italian chocolate in a plastic box which holds 27 MDs without their cover or 8 with covers and 11 without.

Links: Martin Borus' information about this case.

Comments: Following the article about the German fellow using Ferrero Rochers' boxes as MD cases, I noticed that the 375g boxes (30 Rochers) sold by Ferrero in France are the ideal solution to store 20 MDs with their cases. -Xav

I noticed in the supermarket the other day that they have changed to design of these chocolate boxes that make good MD cases. They have rounded off all the edges and corners, so now square MDs will not fit as well as before. The chocolates still taste okay though! Alison Clayton

Ikea ``Moppe'' Utility storage cases``Moppe'' Utility storage casesGBP 6-22
Availability:
various

Description: Cheap and cheerful small sets of drawers and boxes. Ready assembled, unfinished beech/spruce plywood. They come in a range of sizes and styles, some obviously sized for cassette or CD. The drawers in the smaller (cassette) sized 'Moppe' are just the right height for MDs on their edge. In the store they suggest various ways the drawers can be painted and finished, including fitting handles.

User Comments: Watch out when shopping in Ikea, it can be addictive. I bought a Moppe when I went in for something else! I got the version with six different sized drawers, and now it is storing all my MD's (40, with plenty of room for more) my leads, microphone, headphones and even my portable when I am not using it! -Alison Clayton
