If you aren’t one of the lucky few, today we have a treat for you: the simple three (and a half!) step plan to getting that darned CD into a Compact Disk player. You will be learning how to keep you and your precious CD safe, without the looming danger that your past experiences have left you with.
Step 1: CD Case Packaging
Some use their exceedingly long finger nails, others attack the plastic with scissors, and some just pass it on to their friends. In any case, there isn’t much you can do about this, and it may take multiple trial runs and some unsightly injuries before you get it down to a science.
Your best bet will be to take a sharp object and cut along a crease the edge of the case. Even better is if the packaging has a pull-string or the like that simplifies the removal. If this step has already occurred or has been done for you, you can move on to the next step of the CD removal.
