    My DVD profiler says it cannot open my database, and when I say "yes" for it to try and repair the database, it says it can't do it.
    Am I screwed? Is there a way I can fix the database?
    Thanks,

    Chauncey,
    The same thing happened to me. You can't do anything about it but remove DVDProfiler and then re-install it. If you've made a backup then once you've re-installed you should be able to restore it.
    Alternately, what I did was download it from MyProfiler off the web.
    And, by the way, you need to make sure you delete the entire directory or it won't work when you re-install.

    There is an advanced database repair utility here:
    http://www.dvdprofiler.com/dvdpro/faq.shtml#question_8
    I have never used this, but give it a shot.
    The one time I lost my database, I was easily able to recover it because I had uploaded it to the web site just the day before. With nearly 500 DVDs, that was a lifesaver! I always upload after making new entries.
    If the link doesn't work, go to the web site and look for the FAQ. The 8th question will take you to the utility.
