Can I dispute this? If so how?

I have a current Blockbuster (used the card this weekend) account. 2 years ago we had a movie that they insisted that we never returned. I fought it, the store looked for it and never found it. So we were responsible. They charged us for the movie and it ended up on my credit report because at this point a collection agency took over. We paid the $29. It's reporting on my Exp CR only. Do I have any leg to stand on since I still have the same acct with BB? Would this be considered a late payment since the acct is still open? I didn't bother disputing this account because I wasn't sure how? I read numerous times that consumers have had late payments removed.

This is how it is listed:

Call the CRA and ask them if you dispute the collection would they verify or just allow it to be deleted? Its 29.00 for goodness sake.

Don't dispute it. Send a goodwill letter.
