    I love using both DVD Profiler and DVD Aficionado for my DVD collection but I was wondering if anybody knew of something similar that I could use to keep track of CDs?

    There's Guzzlefish. Personally I don't care for it (to many missing titles, to hard to get them added), but it might be what you're looking for.

    I've already tried Guzzlefish and quite using it because of those reasons. I was thinking something else might be out there. Thanks for telling me about Guzzlefish though Brain.

    No other free ones I know of. Collectorz.com has a music version of their software, but I've never tried it. I have their book software & it's not to bad.

    I use www.cd-tracker.com simply because you can easily add any CD you want. No need to rely on limited catalogs.

    I'm using collectorz.com Music Collector. Here's a link to my collection if you want to see what it will look like. I have about 260 of my CDs done and around 100 more to go.

    I like it, but you will have to put a lot of time into it if you want accurate information. In the program, you can search for your albums by UPC or title and grab the info from Amazon.com and other sources, but song titles and other information isn't always accurate. I enter everything in myself. I even play each CD in Winamp to quickly grab the correct track lengths. But if you just want artist name, album name, year and the album cover, it won't take much effort.

    The export to HTML feature is quick. If will automatically create thumbnails of all of your album images, so there isn't much work required after you're done entering in your collection.

    If you're going to enter in the song/track information yourself, it has a nice subtrack feature if you have a lot of CDs with song "suites". You can also enter in notes like live, alternate version, etc. Here's a link to one of my albums with examples of this:

    Phil_La, looks pretty nice. Is it possible to put in a link to amazon or allmusic in there somewhere, maybe as a note? About the only thing I like about cdtracker are the hyperlinks.

    Yes, Greg. Some of the CDs in my collection, probably over half, have amazon links in the details page. If you import the CD from amazon, it will automatically add the link with the CD.
