The last month or so I have been purchasing msdn and volume licensing discs on ebay for dirt cheap. I have to have at least a 1000 of them and I am now starting to go through it all and sort. What do you think the best way to sort them????

Color of disc (type of disc)
Date (example... January 2008)
Disc # (3496.4)

I started with color then each color is sorted by disc number.

if I just do the disc number then colors will be mixed up.

Any that r not on the ftp I will archive.

I would sort it by color first, and then by number since the colors are different categories which should be sorted first.
