To send music CDs to England Germany France Italy, what are the postage rates?

I need to postage for small packages of 1 oz 2oz 3oz 4oz 5oz and 6 oz.

The USPS system is so complex, I can't decipher the information there. My Post Office has never even heard of a rate card for overseas mail. It's like a dystopia of non-functional data systems. Somebody must have done this at some point. There must be some knowledge on this issue. Probably millions of small packets go to Europe every day. I want to send a few, but nobody in the US government has a clue about the rates -- they simply are 100% Non-Helpful. Did anybody ever send a CD to Europe?

It looks like $2.98 will do it for 2 oz. You can get the exact number at www.USPS.gov. I admit that it is not user-friendly but you have to get the weight and the size of package just right or it will be returned. I guessed you would use a bubble wrap envelope which cost $1..
