I hate these things, bloody cardboard cases!! Does anyone know where I can buy the plastic part as several of mine are broken so DVD does not stay in place. I can't replace them with normal cases as they are part of boxsets so normal cases will not fit.

:eek:

Unfortunately I don't think you can get replacement parts :( The only consolation is that Warners have stopped using them now and all their new (and back catalogue) titles seem to be coming out in normal plastic amaray cases (not much help for those of us with broken snappers though!) :thumbsdow

They are cardboard - that's the point.

Strange about Gothika & Matchstick Men - but both those titles are region one, so maybe it is just region two that has changed, but they definitely have... eg Matrix Reloaded - There are no doubts that Warners are by far the worst DVD retailer in terms of quality/content/price however... :thumbsdow

Was just looking for some info and found this: "The snapper case is a product of a company by the name of Ivy Hill. Ivy Hill was owned by Time-Warner. That is, until a few months ago when Warner sold off Ivy Hill. Hence, the phasing out of the snapper."

That's a 2-discer isn't it? There never was a 2-disc Snapper.

There have been occasions that I have been tempted to pick a cheap disc up by Warner but have been knocked of because of the package and I bet others will have well. So ditching them can only be a good move.

Yes there was. Originally Warners used to release 2-disc versions in a snapper case (redesigned with an extra disc holder), but they fell to pieces within weeks so they started using alternative cases instead.

The only thing worse than a warner snapper is they could have put them in cardboard sleeves like on magazine cover mounted discs!

Grrr

Don't get me started. I hate Warner / New line's cardboard cases.

We should be able to exchange them for a real case.

Was looking in HMV today and WB have definitely changed their cases - I saw The Matrix & Scooby Doo (both single disc) in standard amaray cases...

About bloody time too :mad: . It makes me sick a huge company like WB gave cheap nasty snappers for so long to us consumers. I have all my DVDs stacked in a huge cupboard and the snappers stick out like a sore thumb from all the other amaray cases :(

Australia still has the edge with Warner releases. They come in clear Amaray cases with double sided art, chapter listing etc visible from inside the case (our warners are black cases with single sided art with no inlay/booklet), the art on the spine is better (englarged to fit the bigger spine) and in Australia they arn't afraid of releasing NTSC versions of films which havn't yet had a PAL transfer (these NTSC titles havn't been released in the UK at all).

Still, getting rid of snappers is a step in the right direction...
