Hmmm...... I don't like the sound of that at all. I haven't seen those yet. Are you sure it is an Elite case and not a different brand that looks similar?

I recently got some 3-disc elite cases from Casetopia. They still heald discs in the same manner (2 on the flap, 1 on the right side of the inner case), but I noticed they felt a bit flimsier. I compared it to an older 3 disc elite case, and the new ones are definitely thinner. There's even a slight disc-shaped indentation on the inside of the case (on the side that doesn't hold a disc) where it is thinner. It doesn't have a recycle logo or anything on it, but it is thinner.

I don't like that they are thinner, but they did work out nicely in one manner. I bought these little stick-on disc hubs from amazon (I think it was from a 3rd party seller who has their orders fullfilled by amazon). I wanted to experiment with make a 3-disc case into a 4-disc case.

The Avengers (3D version set) was my main reason for wanting to try this. I hated the stacked discs inside of the case, but I wanted a case that would fit inside of the slip cover (and normal 4-disc cases are too wide). Plus I have that bonus disc from Target. I wanted to be able to leave out the digital copy, but put the other discs and the Target disc in the case.

So, I put one of these stick on hubs on the side that doesn't hold a disc, and made sure to line it up so that the center of that hub doesn't hit the center of the hub from the "page" that it comes into contact with (so the case will close fine). All in all it wasn't too bad. It is a tight fit when it comes to closing the case, but it does close with no resistance.

The only issue is that the stick on hub doesn't hold a disc quite as well as the actual hubs in the case and the disc can come loose more easily than I would like... but I did find a solution for that.... when I put some kind of paper (i.e. the DMR code sheet) in the clips and over the disc, it helps hold it to the hub and it doesn't come loose (at least not unless I REALLY go out of my way to try to force it to pop out, and even then it still usually stays put). I couldn't get all of the paper item that came with it back in the case and close it with all 4 discs in there, but I didn't care. I only put what is needed in there to hold the other disc in place. I put the 3D disc under there since it's the one that will get the least use (since I don't even have a 3D TV as of now).

But it's a solution. I haven't tried putting one of these hubs in the older, thicker 3-disc cases, but I doubt it will work. So I guess there's something to be said for the thinner cases.

But if the case you describe truly is an elite case and that's the direction these things are going in, then I'm not looking forward to that at all. That completely ruins any future use of my extra hub solution.

Retail replacement Blu-ray cases for beyond six discs are still rare. If cost is not an issue there is discussion in this thread for a source in Australia for a seven disc case. Fees and insurance will add at least $27 AUD to the price.

Yeah, and it stinks!

I just received my import of the UK version of the complete series of Friends, and I LOVE the 10-disc cases that they used for the seasons. I wish those were readily available.

Have 2 disc PS3 cases started popping up anywhere yet? I know they're out there because several of the new PS3 "collections" releases are coming in them (I know inFAMOUS and God of War for sure). Is there anywhere you can buy them yet? I haven't been able to find them anywhere.

Casetopia has a great selection of cases. They have 1-6 disc cases of Elite and Vortex styles. They also have the clear Criterion cases.

I have a few three disc movies in Viva Elite cases which I have come across a fourth disc for. I want to add that disc to the set while still using the original artwork and slip covers.

Any thoughts?

I've been making my own combo packs for awhile now and had the same problem with the slipcover no longer fitting when It went to 4 discs. I was using a 4 disc case and not the slipcover. I too bought some of the triple packs from Walmart. I changed the 1 disc inside tray with a 2 disc inside tray from a viva 3 disc case and it worked. I was afraid the case wouldn't close with 4 discs inside, but it does very easily. I think it's a perfect solution.

Here are some photos.

The trays line up almost perfect. I snapped each one in the other ones case.






The pic makes it look like it's bowed at the top but it's not.

That looks great! What kind of triple packs at Walmart have these cases? Are they the triple feature blu-rays?

Yes, they are the triple features with the white border that says "own the moments".
Walmart had them on Black Friday with a "promo" sticker on the front.

Looks like this.



Walmart also has the triple packs with a gold-ish border that says "own the moments".
I don't know if the inside is the same on these.

You good Sir are a god among men.

So the 3 disc cases from discmakers are the same size as a standard Elite correct? If so then I need to go to WM and pick up some of those ones you mentioned and order some of the 3 disc from discmakers. I dislike how Disney has gone the stacking route.

So, where exactly do you get the 3 disc cases that hold a disc on each side of the case, with the 'flap' holding one disc? I'm interested in getting some of these and swapping the tray out from an elite 3-disc case to make the 4-disc case.

It seems that Fox/MGM is starting to use them. I recently bought Firefly:The Complete Series and Modern Family: Season One from FoxConnect and they both came with these cases. I made the Firefly one into a 4-discer and stuck Serenity in there. I'm not sure if any website is selling these yet, though.

Is there anything inside of those cases indicating the brand/manufacturer?
