Entering a Barcode

Please enter ALL THE DIGITS for the barcode, without spaces or dashes. (Sometimes there are numbers on the far left and right of the barcode - don't forget these!)


Sticker Barcodes

Some CDs, DVDs or Games may have a sticker covering the barcode. You will need to type in the original barcode and NOT the over-stickered shop barcode.
