Empty Mini DV Cases

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I wasn't able to find any old threads.

I've been googling my heart out trying to track down a dealer that sells just the clear plastic cases that Mini DV tapes come in, with absolutely no luck.

Can anyone point me to such a place?

I'd be most appreciative for any help you guys could provide.

Thanks,

Zach Nichols

There have actually been quite a few threads on this in recent months, but no satisfying answers; they just don't seem to be available. And even if you can find something close (like LTO Tape Cases), it appears it's more expensive to buy these than to just buy more tapes, and throw away the tapes...

Curious.

I have a lot of them. How many do you need? You pay for shipping and I'll mail them to you. Email me at info@lacolorshop.com.

I'm curious as to how you manage to lose the original cases in the first place.

That sounds awesome Taky.

Andrew, in years past didn't grasp the importance of the cases, thus I was careless with them.

yeah I wonder the same thing too.... I probably have 1-2 tapes (out of 200) that the case broke or I lost it, but how do you get into a situation where you need A LOT of cases?? just wondering!
