  1. I received as a Christmas gift a 2-CDs-in-one-case pair of CDs, but I am
    having trouble removing them from the case. The CD on one side of a door
    like panel (this internal panel holding both CDs) is held in place by a
    "button" in the centre consisting of four barb-like hooks at 90 degrees to
    each other and a donut-shaped piece of plastic connected to four radial
    bars--this latter set of shapes having no apparent (to me) purpose. The
    bars in this latter shape are at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions. I
    have tried pressing hard on the centre donut while attempting to remove
    the CD but it won't come out. Any suggestions on how to remove the CD?
    Regards, Ian Douglas

    you mite want to show us a photo of the
    anchor in the center/centra.
    its possible a mold anchor in the center
    wasn't removed, other wise, the vertical
    claws should simply squeeze together with
    your finger tips and the cd should become
    loose and fall out.

    press hard the centre donut-shaped piece of plastic connected to four
    radial bars...
    the pressure must be on centre only....
    if tht dosnt work try cuttin of d centre donut-shaped piece of plastic
    with a blade...
    be carefull while cuttin...

    hope tht will b d end of all ur probs...
  5. Thanks to all for your replies. I cut the radial bars attached to the
    donut shaped button and this caused everything to disintegrate in the
    button area, so that nothing is now holding the CDs into the plastic inner
    leaf. However, my dad says that he has some old jewel cases that I can
    have, so all's well that ends well (sort of). Regards, Ian D.
