    Credit card in hand, cursor on link but question in head.

    Do R1 dvds from CD-WOW come with french writing on the covers? I've been searching the boards and their f.a.q. but can't see any mention of this anywhere.

    Welcome to the Forum . :thumbsup:

    None of my R1 have had French text as far as I know. Cd-wow are a great company you can trust IMHO. One of the best out there.

    Cheers, Mylo:)

    There are always exceptions but many are the same as the US versions while some have a little flash marking (the size of a 20p coin) on the front cover that says "version franches" but this happens a lot less than with a company like dvdsoon or even play247 who send their disks from Canada.

    Just made my first CD-WOW order (first of many, so many bargins!!) but still holding out on the R1s. I may aswell get specific, it's the Master and Commander SE 2 disc. Having French writing would put me off buying it (nothing against the French). Anyone else got a copy?

    Hi,

    Personally, for me its all about whats on the dvds. Never hardly look at the covers!. And all those who by R3, do you ever worry about all the japanese, chineese, or korean text on them?.

    The very reason i'm buying the R1 over the R2 version is for the Special Editon packaging (same content, better cover).

    It's one of the same reasons I can't download films off Kazza and havevery few copied cds or dvds. Packaging plays a big part in my collecting.

    I'm actually considering replacing my current French text dvds with thier R2 counterparts!

    Strange thing is that I would consider buying Japanese, Chineese, or Korean (or French) dvds for collection purposes but I just think having both English and French on the cover looks horrible. Personal taste I guess

    Hi and welcome to the forums.............

    I've had a shed load of R1s from CDWOW, none with French language markings......... If you consider ordering from DVDSoon, they usually put "(v.f)" - meaning "version Francaise" - after the title of dvds which would be marketted for French speaking markets in Canada and would have the covers in French.

    If you're ordering R3s from CDWOW, they sometimes come with foreign writing on the covers, but lots of R3s I've bought from them have been in English.... you can often tell from the picture on the site, or check Dvdprofiler.

    I'm not that fussed, tbh, variety is the spice of life, as they say.........

    All of these welcomes, respect, advice and good manners have taken me by surprise, but there none the less welcome. Definitely the only forum i'm posting on at the mo'.

    I don't think DVDSOON or MOVIETYME's version of Master and Commander have French text so i've ordered it fom CD-WOW

    Thanks to you guys CD-WOW now have my custom, saved me a few bob too. :smashin:

    It all depends on the distributor, as to whether R1 covers are bi-lingual or not. I have had several DVDs from CD-WOW, which contain bi-lingual covers, as the Canadian ones are obviously cheaper to source. There's a thread on this on the Movietyme Forum , which you might find useful. Apologies to Mods / Admin if this isn't allowed, or if there's a thread here somewhere - I haven't found it!

    If you are fussy about not having dual language covers, suggest you try www.dvdpacific.com, who are almost as cheap as DVD Soon, but all titles are US sourced.

    It is worth knowing that dvd soon put a little yf (or vf) on films which have bi-lingual covers

    Welcome

    Steer clear of dts, PAL v NTSC and Star_Wars threads and things should be alright.

    Much love to cd-wow.
