    Is there a software that I could buy at say BEST BUY or somewhere that works like DVD PROFILER.

    I would like to own something in hand that is along those lines...the online listing isn't that important.

    ANY suggestions are welcomed ...BTW I have tried Microsoft as a list but it gets tiresome to input all the data about a DVD.

    PLEASE help,thanx ,CHRIS

    Can't you just use DVD Profiler offline?

    I could use it offline and I do.

    But I would like to "OWN" something store bought that does pretty much the "SAME THING" as DVD Profiler and perhaps have some online stuff as well. I dont suppose there is anything like DVD Profiler in a store product version.

    I ran out of space to upload my collection on their online site and I just dont like paying for something online and not actually have the actual product in hand.

    I may be sounding a little anal but thats how I am about my dvd collection.

    thanx for respondin', Chris

    OK, but my point was that you can "OWN" something that does pretty much the "SAME THING" as DVD Profiler, in fact EXACTLY the same thing; just use DVD Profiler. Why not just support a great program and pay the $25 registration? Is the only thing holding you back the fact that it doesn't come in a box?

    Given that it is easy to recover your registration code for DVD profiler should something happen to your computer, I wouldn't let the fact that it doesn't come in a box stop you from purchasing it. If it bothers you that much, why not just burn the thing to a CD.

    But to answer your question, as far as I know there is no software like DVD profiler that serves those functions that you can run out and buy.

    Is it just me or is this a very peculiar thread? Software is software whether you download it off the web or off a disc should be irrelevant.

    In fact, DVD Profiler's ability to store your data online allows for easy retrieval should your PC crash and you didn't make a backup of your database. A strictly offline software would not be able to offer you the same backup/restore capability.

    DVD Profiler is an outrageous bargain at $25 and that's for life. They have made huge improvements over the years and have never charged for any of their many updates.

    Divide the $25 fee by the number of DVDs in your collection and that might help realize how much a bargain this software is.

    No offense but wth? Download the program, burn it to a CD, put a label on it and it's in your hand.

    How is DVDProfiler that different from anything store-bought?

    You do own a single license once you pay the $25, which is what you would pay for if you bought it in the store, not to mention any snazzy packaging they may have.

    So consider yourself lucky that DVDProfiler is around, I'm sure some people including myself would pay 4 times what they charge for a license and still be very happy with the product.

    If you have a PDA, you can download your list from dvdaf.com to it.

    The only reason you have run out of space (unless your collection is bigger than mine -3100-) is that you have "locked" all your movies. What happens is that by locking the movies, it takes more space. I have gotten to the point where all I lock is the Title and Cover. Every-once-in-a-while (if I do not "refresh") I get the space error too. But once refreshed all is well.

    Thanks for the replies. I guess I will pay the registration fee and just save the program to a disk. If all you guys did it then I guess I got nothing to worry about.

    Thanks Again
