    I did a search for cataloging DVD's and didnt find exactly what I was looking for.
    I have a nice large collection going now and have 2 or 3 relatives borrowing them quite often. I only let a few go out at a time as im very protective of my collection. I would like to be able catalog them in a program on my PC and be able to label the following.

    Title:
    In:
    Out:
    Date:
    Who has it:

    I want to be able to add a new movie and have it auto alphabatize and auto number 1-XX, If I put an X in a section such as in or out I would like to hit a tab at the top and see them all together to see how mnay and who has them out.I have tried Microsoft Access but it doesnt work quite right. The program does not allow me to add the DVD's and keep them in alpha and numerical oreder. Unless im doing something wrong.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, jeff

    DVD Profiler has a feature to keep track of who you've loaned discs to. I personally do not use that function, but the application is an excellent way to catalog your collection.

    I can vouch for the collectorz product, I use it now and its a great piece of software. One of the few actually worth purchasing. You can see my collection exported from this program at
