Old CD Software Wallet

Hey everyone,

Doing some house cleaning and came across my CD wallet which has served as a great place to hold software CDs in one place over the years. Is there any reason anyone can think of that I don’t throw the following away? It seems logical but I’m hesitating for some reason:

Mac OSX Snow Leopard DVD
Powerbook G4 Mac OSX Install Disc 1 (machine long gone)
Logic Express 7 Academic (now have X) Install + Content
iWork 08
iWork 06
iLife 05
Logitech Harmony Remote 4.0
iMac G5 Install Disc
Sibelius 3,4, & 5 Music Notation (now have 7)
iPod 2003 Disc
Drivers for various devices from this era

It’s a CD wallet worth of stuff and wondered if 1) there’s any reason to keep or 2) something I should consider doing with them besides throwing in trash.


You can dispose of them, only good use for optical media is to scare birds away from crops.

In addition to being decent bird scarer for your garden, do make a quick check at the various computer museum places. Sometimes specific install disks are on their want list to get old hardware running.
