I'm looking into it... apparently the company "Viva Media Packaging" which makes the Elite cases has a location near my house. They offer 1 - 10 disc packages. I tried to contact them to see if a private order is possible, or whether I will have to be a busines... but their system rejects my e-mails. I will try calling them next week and report back if I get any info.

I've googled high and low and was never able to find one. I suppose at this point we won't be seeing them

Only alternative might be a double Blu-Ray case, so that at least the size matches up. But I don't believe those are available yet either.

They probably have those, too, since Blade Runner is a 5-disc set in a case... Just finding someone to sell it to you would be the bigger question :-).

I need some of these too. My Clerks 2 case came from Amazon on release day w/ a broken spindle. I was too lazy to send it back to them for a replacement.

Thanks, please do keep us posted.


And yeah, a 5 disc case like the Blade Runner version would be awesome for Battlestar. 2 of them could also hold the entire Trek set

i'd like some 2 disc cases as well. i've debated what to do with SD-DVD's that I have duplicate HD-DVDs for, sell them or keep them. Since space is at a premium on my media rack, I was inclined to sell them, but since I saw this thread, I thought a better idea would be to "make my own combos" with two disc cases with both the HD and SD discs inside. That way I wouldn't have to worry as much about going over to friends places etc without HD players and not being able to play a movie. So, anybody find these cases yet?

Besides, now that I know those are just the thicker European cases I'm not interested in buying them. I want the slimmer American version.

What's wrong with using 2-disc dvd cases? I've only rented HDDVDs so I didn't know there was anything special about their case.... discs look normal sized to me...

The discs are the same size but actual HD DVD cases are about an inch shorter and made of transparent red plastic. They don't look anything like regular DVD cases.

I just bought 5 2 disk cases today like those posted above from amaray. The seller was from the UK. They had an auction on ebay and I cant list the name because according to forum rules that would be promoting. I can say that the 5 cost me 5.45 GBP and less than 8 GBP to ship. Converted that was roughly a little over 5 bucks a case. They are the amaray ones and do have the HD DVD logo etched on them.

This might be a bit "ghetto" but it works. What I did was use single hd dvd case and added a foam cd dot on the blank panel. I'd rather have a 2 disc hd dvd case, but the foam dots work fine for now.

I've used paper sleaves for the second disc before. Although buying those plastic/foam stickyspindiles isn't a bad idea. If I recall walmart sell's them.

Also puting the DVD counter part in their now that's a slick idea. I've been running out of space as well. I'm at the point were I've had to stack all the overflow DVDs on another shelf. So for I've just been moving box set over but I'm about 10 movies away from reaching my A-Z DVDs.

I did the same thing. Once I've gotten the two disc sets I bought from HWV moved into them I'll sell my spares to a lucky forum poster.

These are only 1 disc cases and they're thicker than the cases sold in the US.

HD DVD: 88 | Blu-Ray: 77 (new: Full Metal Jacket, SW:tCW, Bonnie & Clyde (AU))
DVD: 43 (new: Life Season 1)

Where can I buy just 1 or 2 HD DVD cases. I need to replace a couple after my dad decided to ignore the security tape on the top and rip apart the case itself.
