Well I've already made the transition for pretty much my whole collection so I am no longer in the phase of searching out options. I don't exactly plan on taking out CDs every day from this setup since most of them are ripped.


Where are your rear inlays (tray cards)???

A free program to transfer a playlist from your iPod back into iTunes?

Uh, yeah. It's called iTunes.

http://osxdaily.com/2012/07/02/transfer-playlist-from-ios-to-itunes/

Basically: plug in your device. Find the playlist on the device you want to transfer. Export it as an XML file and then import into iTunes. You'll still have to have the music on your computer, of course, for the playlist to actually work.


Thanks, I will give it a try. I did try to Google this before asking here, but I wasn't quite finding the info I needed. And yeah, I no longer have any of the original playlists. They were completely obliterated from the computer.

All gone of course. No room for them in here. I had to get rid of something to get it to fit.

I know it is hard for people to understand and it scared me a bit when I was doing it but looking back all you really need is the art on the front of the booklet and the disc. I think back to the purpose of collecting this music in the first place, it was primarily about getting access to the music that I love. Finding what you want to listen to is much faster when you can see 12 front covers at one time. 90% of the artwork associated with these CDs is scanned and saved on my computer if I ever feel like reading the booklet or examining the tracklist. I really don't care about reading tracklists or knowing what the track is titled. But if I didn't have scans that information is freely available online.

Moving my discs to these two big cases cleared up a TON of space on the shelves and means that when i move it will be a piece of cake to move the collection with me. The CDs are primarily a backup and an optional way of listening if I don't want to turn on the computer. 99% of the time I don't listen to music from the CD or read the liner notes when I listen.

Chucking away the track lists - not to mention losing ALL collectability / resale value? Are you serious?

Resale is roughly 0% of the reason I purchase CDs, and I very rarely look at a tracklist after receiving and shelving the disc, so these losses would be negligible considerations for me.

Why not just put all the back covers in a small box? That is what I have done with my older non score CDs. I put the front cover and CD in a binder just like he has...and I take the back covers out of the case and I have a small box I put them all in. I have probably 10 of these binders full of old pop/rock cds that I don't listen to hardly ever any more...but if I want to sell them, I still have access to the entire packaging.

Exactly.

While resale may not be a consideration when buying, it's always good to have the option in your back pocket. If only to sell older editions to fund upgrades.

This is exactly true of course but I guess the answer is that I didn't feel like hanging onto those papers. Still I'm not expecting to sell the remaining discs anytime soon. I've had them for long enough that I could decide if I want to keep them as permanent part of the collection or not. When I was transferring stuff to these cases I pulled out a few I wanted to sell. Actually selling them has proven to be quite difficult though, despite some of them being sold out.

EDIT: Plus, if I kept the papers, then I would also need to keep some cases around and then there would have been no point of putting these discs into a case like this.
