    Join the club. I've broken at least 3 different cases like that.

    Unfortunately, some Blu-ray cases are also incorporating a different kind of hinge system. I hate the ones that have the hinge and several of them are already broken so that the hinge doesn't close all the way. :mad:

    I don't like it either. I would just like to simply open up my DVD case and not have it constricted in the case.

    Yeah I find them annoying, too, though I've not broken a DVD case because of them yet.

    I often wonder... why?

    Why would you apply the amount of strength that would break it, before realizing that something's wrong and remembering that there are hinges?

    Thank you. Seriously guys- it's not that big of a deal. I've never ruined a DVD case because of this.

    Neither have I.

    Blu-Ray is beginning to put the hinges on, too. Get used to it, duke.:)

    See the hinge?

    I have found that they are getting rid of the hinges on the new blu ray cases.

    You can rip off the 2 little hinges that come on the DVDs. This is what I did when they first started making them like that.

    I can't say anything about the Blu-Ray hinges because I haven't bought any with them on there yet.

    You don't need to remove the flap, just fold it over and it will stay shut. :D
