A small frame that holds Mini DV tape cases upright, 4 around, on to at least a 50 DVD spindle. with room for a few more disks.

The "Full" is a CD sized, cd thin disk. this one offers a suggestion of alignment, the tapes will topple if jostled. It uses more plastic, but it looks better.

The "Less" is a (better) trimmed down circle, much thicker, and small print bed friendly. The tapes are fairly rigidly upright.

This is for easier archiving, as the computer backups are probably down to blue ray or DVD, but the master tapes still exist.


The ends might curl on the small one, but it gets thick enough to stop.

a practical concern is to keep less above or these on top.

on a 50, I suggest the few disks that it has space for go on top.

on a 100, put the tapes on top. with a blank or lesser important one as the buffer. the weight shouldnt matter, but depending on the enviornment (which would wreck your disks anyways) the pinpoint weight 'may' damage the top disk, but only after years or extreme temps. (dvdr's just arn't any good after 4 years, I found this out the hard way, even in a stable environment)

The frame itself support no weight, only the polycarbonate tape cases.

Umm, you might want to change the shape of this. It kindof looks like a swastika. Might offend some people
