Here's larger capacity wallet style: CD Wallets-the CDW64 is small; here's one almost the same as $ store ones: Plastic case .
I have one of their larger binders(first link) that hold 8 CD's per page/insert (4 on each side)-12 pages, but I can add more pages. Also have a few of the other sizes(like the CDW 64). They also have DVD Wallets which seem to have heavier-duty inserts.
These and other brands can usually be found in music stores, department stores, etc. Think of the time/money you might save every few years replacing 50 DVDs Easier access, too, instead of rifling through a pile of discs.
But what about the legitimate situation where the DVD is one YOU created? If you don't want to keep the iDVD/iMovie project lying around but want to make multiple copies of your own work, what's the best solution to that?

HJS, What you have to understand is that space in Motor Homes is a valuable commodity.
Even 10 of the smaller cases, would be far too bulky to store in a motor home. Although Sinc's 27 foot motor home may seem large, when you really start using the space it isn't.
I'm sure Sinc appreciates the feedback though.

His name sounds good in your ear, but when you hear it, you musn't fear.
Cause his name can be said, in many different ways...

I was talking to a legal beagle friend (who is well versed in intellectual property law) last night and brought up this 'personal backup' question, and according to the license agreement both on the back of a DVD (and CD) package, and the notice at the start of the movie, the consumer as NO right to make a 'backup copy for personal use'.
The magic words are "... criminal penalties for for the unauthorized distribution, reproduction...".
Nowhere in that license do they authorize that you may make a backup copy.
And if his memory serves, the idea of a personal backup that wasn't in the license agreement (for software) was back in the days when the media was a little less reliable (and people were stapling floppy disks together...). Things have changed.
So you may want to check with your own legal beagle before coping any more DVDs...

The Copyright Act was amended in 1998 to include a section on private copying. The amendment imposed a levy on all blank recordable media and to non-removable memory in audio devices, which made it legal to copy musical recordings for private use.
From Streetcents (CBC) site:
You make a copy of a CD you bought. If you keep it for yourself, itís legal. If you give your copy to a friend, thatís illegal distribution.
Your friend loans you a CD they bought and you copy it for yourself. Thatís completely legal. The difference is that the COPY is not being distributed.
Now, the laws for DVD's is probably different, but I remember reading somewhere that backing-up a rented DVD for personal use is legal (i'm trying to find the source, i'll post it when i do).
in scenario two:
having the friend loaning the CD to you is already enough to be illegal. that's illegal lending. only copying of a CD that you OWN is not illegal. distribution is another entirely different matter.
lending is illegal.
read the small print. "unauthorized lending" is illegal... only form of authorized lending in Canada is renting.... and that's licensed to rental companies, like Blockbusters, Rogers, etc...
