I've been wondering about this for a few days, and I can't seem to find a simple answer:

Can a BD-XL drive read (and potentially show) 4K? I'm thinking that they're both "simply" high-capacity BluRays, but are they the same format?

It seems that all drives I can find that boasts UHD-playback also supports BD-XL without exception - the opposite isn't always the case, but is that because it is implied, or is there a subtle difference? I mean, it's not like any electronics company to miss out on a single superlative they can slap on the box...

(I don't own any 4K discs, so I can't test it myself)

Is it just me, or does "Sausage Party" sound like the title of an adult movie (with an all male cast)!?

The sheet protectors hold 50 covers?  Are they standard sheet protector sheets, or are they thicker to allow more covers?  Where did you get these six pocket covers?  Thanks again!


Perfectly standard, yes. They can be bought almost anywhere, like Amazon.

I do have another question for you, Rander.  What is the program you are using to convert DVD's to MKV, and what do you use to sort and find the discs later on the hard drive?  Do you have an MKV player for your drives?  If one of your original DVD's goes bad, how do you convert MKV back to DVD to replace that disc?

I use MakeMKV to rip the discs. I would guess that the mkv-file can be burned back to a disc with just about no hassle, but I have not yet found that nessecary.
Finding the files is as easy as putting them in folders with the number and title - ie disc 951 is in the folder "901-1000\951 - The Stand"

I see the label on our binder says 951-1000. Are the discs documentation in numerical order, and do you use both sides of the sheet protector for one disc, or two?

The covers are in numerical order as well, yes. There are 50 of them in each plastic pocket (each binder holds six pockets, 300 covers total).

My collection was originally sorted by purchase date.  I have since re-arranged the movies so that major movie collections are together.  I have printed out a listing in descending order with the highest number assigned to the last movie.

My question is, can I save the layout that I have as a default, then generate a report of an alphabetical listing printout of where the discs are, then revert to my default - last disc purchased shown at the top.?


If I understand you correctly, then this is what you're looking for!?

For me, binders is the way to go.

First thing I do when getting a new disc is ripping it to an mkv, preserving only one audio track (best resolution track of the original language) and the danish subtitles. That file is then stored on my NAS.

The discs and covers are then put in binders, and the cases are trashed (except special cases like customs, steelbooks and such). The labels is simply a small report, printed to a Brother P-Touch QL-500 Label writer.

And yes, the numbering is the order purchased. When I first started collecting, I renumbered everything to alphabetical with every purchase, but it became to much of a hassle...

Agree with both of you! Drama is more of a "catch-all" when nothing else fits...

I've always had the understanding that if it is a "stand-alone" cover, such as a keep case, then the "outer shell" is a Slip Cover (because without the slip-cover, you could still consider the packaging "complete" - you cannot see that there was supposed to be a slip cover).

In your picture, it isnt (as you would never consider the inner packing complete without the slip-part - it is very clear that something is missing), so that would be a Slip Case.

Hope it makes sense..?
