Its just that id didnt expect it to be that difficult :)


rip all your movies to MPEG4 (or obtain them otherways :wink: ) and stick em all on single big HDD - half a TB external portable hard-disks are only about £120 here now. Will easily hold all your 300 films with slight quality loss :)

... bringing that into the country will be easy in comparison, im personally getting sick of physical media now anyway, they take up so much space! :)

hmmm...well if you watch the dvds consistently bring them over. if they are they are gathering dust as you display them in the cabinet...i'd leave them.

i actually brought some dvds in my hand luggage and didn't get screened. i arrived here with 5 bags and pushed two carts full of luggage through the "Nothing to Declare" line and no one gave me any trouble.
