    DVD Empire gives front & back cover scans of their discs, so the UPC codes should be on the back cover scans, at least.

    Even before the front/back cover artwork is up for future releases, DVD Empire usually has the UPC code included in the DVD's specifications section.

    What do you need the UPC codes for?

    It's just a guess, but maybe he wants them for DVD Profiler. I've been looking for a site for that reason, and I guess I just found one [​IMG]

    I always go to DVD Empire to copy/paste the UPC into DVD Profiler (just make sure you only copy the middle 10 digits of the 12 digit number listed in the specs -- Profiler doesn't use the first and last digits.

    Then I copy/paste the front and back cover scans to replace the low resolution ones in Profiler.

    Since you aren't placing in the exact copy that you have, why not put it into Profiler with the title search?

    If I have the DVD in front of me I just type in the UPC. But I don't always get them down off the shelf when entering a batch of titles (I've got a backlog I'm still working on entering).

    I prefer using the UPC instead of title search because title search often turns up a bunch of non-Region 1 versions and then you have to sift through and figure out which is the correct one. The DVD Empire UPC listing is for Region 1.
