Actually I said post *where* the secret is. I never would have thought about pulling my box apart

Oops sorry for the misquote. I know I felt weird about unscrewing the bottom of my box in the first place before anyone said anything. I just looked and thought it seemed like the perfect amount of space to hide a Jewel case and since I figured it was the "secret jewel box"...........

Look - I guess I'm just plain stupid, but I would NEVER have thought to check for anything hidden, and NEVER thought to look under there (thanks Gabe!) *If it wasn't for you guys...well - I'd be just like the other X% that'll NEVER FIND IT, which is too bad. *My fave: "God gave hiney holes to us...." :rotf:

No the secret jewel wil play in any CD player but the CD with 40 tracks on it will not play in SOME CD players. It will not play in my Sony Vaio laptop but it will play in my main PC and all other CD players around the house and in the cars.

You did not take the Secret CD out? It is an awesome interview CD!! It will harm the box in any way by taking it out.

The interview CD plays on all CD players but some people are having problems with the 40 track "The Elusive Light and Sound Vol. 1" CD playing on some CD players.

You HAVE to check out the secret CD though. It rocks.

I got the Secret Jewel but at first I did not see it as it was on the inner side of the bottom panel. I laid it down on the table and proceeded to ply open the panel above that. I decided not to take it all off since I only so cardboard in there. Would have been a mistake.

Oh * When I took mine off the 2 black pieces stuck together and I almost put it back in since I did not see anything. Then the CD caught my eye. I took it off one more time because I thought for sure there could be a jewel case in there somewhere but I was wrong. The box did not suffer but maybe this little tidbit of info will keep people from making a bad mistake and mutilating their box.

I wonder if Vai will make a jewel case for te interview CD to go with the next CD that comes out? That would be cool. OR he could make the next cD have a dual tray for the interview CD to fit in.

Mine was tough, too. *Push down on one side and pull up on the other; it will come. *Also try something like knives or nail files on opposite sides, squeezing both towards each other, then pulling.
