    Does anyone know the name of that program everyone is using to catalog their DVD's? Its the one where you can put the UPC in and it will tell you everything about the DVD.
    Thx

    Of all the programs I have ever paid for DVD Profiler is probably the one I got most value out of and use the most, and all for only $20. And for those who don't want the full version it's FREE and does the same thing. I just hated to see the advertisements.

    I found a great program for Books/CD's/Videos (don't know if it does DVD's) Called Readerware at http://www.readerware.com
    Enjoy!

    For music CDs, I personally use CD Trustee (www.base40.com). Not nearly as good as DVDProfiler but it works pretty well.

    DVDProfiler is worth its weight in gold as far as I'm concerned.

    I stumbled upon this--Music Collector: http://www.collectorz.com/music/index2.html
    A lot of my friends use this software to catalog their vast CD collections, and from what I've seen, it works like a charm and is very easy to use. Unfortunately, I use Windows ME, and this program doesn't run on it, so I can't give any personal reviews. But you should give it a try.

    "...DVD Profiler is superb for DVDs... "
    ...it probably is, if you stick exclusively to DVDs released in Region 1/USA...
    ...however, if, like me, you also own DVDs ordered from
    * Region 4/Australia (e.g. The Dish )
    * Region 4/Brazil (e.g. Once Upon a Time in America )
    * Region 2/Japan (e.g. Léon - two years before the R1 release)
    * Region 2/France/UK/Germany/Italy/Spain/Netherlands
    * Region 3 (and 0)/Hong Kong
    * Region 3/Korea
    * Region 1/Canada (e.g. Ginger Snaps )
    ...then DVD Profiler is as good as useles...
    Just thought I'd mention that...

    Hendrik, perhaps something has changed since you last tried it, but it does do some Region 2. I haven't tried others but it handled Kevin & Perry Go Large without a problem and it has a field in its database for Region info. Perhaps they've expanded it, or perhaps its very limited and I got lucky, but you might want to try it again.
    I love DVDProfiler myself, I use it with a cuecat and its qutie handy. Putting your catalog on the web is cool too, its nice to show that to friends that want to borrow some movies.

    ...ahh... the IMDb indeed 'does' some Region 2, too - R2/UK and R2/Germany, that is - which still leaves out R2/Norway, R2/Sweden, R2/Denmark, R2/Finland, R2/Netherlands, R2/Belgium, R2/France (that's where I get most of my R2 DVDs from), R2/Italy and R2/Spain (***), not to mention the other regions listed in my previous post (I wonder how many people who go crazy over HK DVDs or Japanese Anime DVDs use Profiler - not many, I bet!)...
    (***)...for those of you who wonder what I'm going on about... each of these countries has their very own DVD-makers/distributors... not every disc released in one of those countries will necessarily be released in any of the other countries... and if it is so released, it may be a different version... e.g. the French DVD of MEMENTO is anamorphic 2.35:1 with DD 5.1 sound, while the Belgian(Benelux) DVD of that same movie is cropped down to anamorphic 1.78:1, but features a dts soundtrack... and so on, ad nauseam...
    ...as for lending DVDs to 'friends' - no thanks! used to do that with CDs, and after getting the discs back spent hours cleaning off oily fingerprints, cigarette ashes, strawberry jam, specks of salami - again: no thanks! (you must have better, more careful friends than I! [​IMG] )

    Well, I know that most members of the forum won't use anything but DVD Profiler, but I thought I'd (once again) suggest my own software: http://www.dvd1138.com/mocasys.asp

    I also own Region 2's Dutch.
    I have to admit 90% of my collection is Regio 1. But when punching in the UPC number it will find 95% of the region 2's I own. The ones not found I can add without much work.
    This way the database is growing like crazy.
    I love DVD profiler, for me it's the only way.
    I used the Laserdisc register from Orlosfsky but I hate to wait for 3-4 weeks to get an update with the new DVD's, and pay a fee per year (don't get pictures with LD register). Still use it for my LD's by the way.
    Greetings from Holland,

    One of the strengths of DVD profiler is its way of creating the database via users.
    I'm annoyed at the lack of R2 content, but its relatively easy to adjust the details and submit the new R2 version to be added to the database. The more people that support it, the more thorough it will be.
