Why can't I find the DVD/Blu-ray I am looking for? 

The team at classicdvd.com.au are constantly updating the website with new information.  Whilst we may have the largest selection of DVD listings in Australia, unfortunately it does not mean that we can source any movie on DVD or Blu-ray. Many films simply have not been released yet which may be the reason why you are having trouble finding it.

If you cannot find a film you are looking for you can email us and we will do our best to help!

 

Some search engine tips:

- Check your spelling

- Try searching by Keywords, Actor, Genre or Format (DVD or Blu-ray)

- Filter or Sort your search results Alphabetically or by Release Date

- Filter or Sort your search results by Availability (In Stock Now, Coming Soon or Unavailable)

- Use our Advanced Search tool to fine tune your search

 

Why won't my disc work?

This can occur when discs have been handled incorrectly (Eg. fingerprints or scratches on the read surface or discs incorrectly removed from their covers). It is highly unusual for a disc to be faulty when manufactured however there are rare instances of faulty batches which usually result in product recalls. It is therefore imperative that you check for any of these problems before contacting us.

Occasionally discs have been found to not be compatible with certain DVD players which is why we encourage our customers to firstly check any problem discs on another brand of player.

DVDs will generally play on your home computer or laptop provided you have a DVD-ROM drive which is compatible with the region encoding of the disc. Most computer monitors will display both the NTSC and PAL signals. We do however advise you check your manual for verification before you proceed with purchase of DVDs.

 

Can I cancel my order?

You may cancel your order online at any time by contacting us, as long as the order has not been shipped. Shipped orders cannot be cancelled. 

 

Can I return or refund an order?

Exchanges or credits (to your account) are available on any unopened DVD within 14 days of purchase, provided we receive the goods in ORIGINAL CONDITION. Returns will be approved at our discretion and all postage costs are to be incurred by the customer. If the disc is damaged upon receipt, we will be unable to accept the goods and they will be returned to you.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a faulty or damaged disc, please email Returns with your specific problem and we will get back to you promptly.
