    I loaded Windows XP on my system.
    Before that, I backed up my DVD Profiler database.
    I’ve reloaded DVD Profiler, CATNIP and restored my database, but it won’t accept any new DVD S/N scans because my CueCat w/CATNIP isn’t properly setup.
    I don't remember how I set it up the first time.
    Does someone have the CATNIP Bar Code filter settings and the other setup info for me?
    Thanks,
    Shawn S

    They're in the Catnip readme file.

    Download Catnip at; http://goldsteinsoftware.com/catnip.htm
    To use CatNip with DVD Profiler:
    1. "CatNip Settings" screen:
    Output Type: Data
    Output (.[Period]) Output (Return)
    2. "CatNip Profiles" screen:
    a. Create a new profile: DVD Profiler
    b. Scan Type: UPA
    c. Filter: -++++++++++-
    d. Leave "Command" blank,
    click on "Save Scan"
    Start DVD Profiler, add a DVD. With the cursor in the UPC entry field, scan the UPC with the CueCat. Voila!
    If you change the right hand "Output" field from (Return) to (None) then the proper code will be entered and you can manually press "Enter". My own preference is to let CatNip automatically send the (Return) code.

    Well, whatever you do, don't do what I did last night.
    I opened my DVD Profiler to add my recent title and it asked me if I wanted to download the recent title list, and I said yes, but then tried to cancel it in the middle. After several clicks on the cancel button, I then proceeded to hit Control-Alt-Delete and stop it. Bad move. It did not want to open and after running the repair tool 5 times and rebooting, I was forced to remove the program and reload it, loosing everything. I now have to re-enter all the titles again. Shit. [​IMG]

    Stephen,
    If you've uploaded your list to the DVD Profiler site, you should be able to download them.
    I've had my DVDProfiler software corrupted on me before, but have been able to salvage all of my listings thanks to the Backup utility provided with DVD Profiler.
    Good luck!

    Thanks guys. I got it working correctly now.
    As for the database, I backed mine up on a CD before I loaded XP.
    When I reloaded DVD Profiler I just reloaded off of the CD.
    I wasn’t aware you could save it online.
    Thanks again,
    Shawn S

    Saving your list on-line gives you the ability to share your listing (if you choose) on the internet.

    Go to Radioshack and ask for a Cuecat scanner.... That speeds up the process immediately!

    PS -they should have some around, or can tell you what store they are in... they can look up all the stores in the district.

  12. I'm also having problems with catnip and DVD Profiler. When I scan a UPC it says I need to validate the UPC entry because "this selection is not yet available from DVD Profiler Online Database." Also, evertime it asks me if I want to refresh my list from IVC and I click yes, it locks up on me. I have followed the settings on the thread for catnip and I still can't make it work. I've been toying with this program for a while now and i'm not getting anywhere. HEEEELP! Please!

    If you can't get it working don't fret. It is far quicker to type the UPC number in than to scan it. (I did it for 950 items this past weekend.)
     
  14. I just tried to type it in. It still tells me that it is not found. on the database and wants me to verify the the UPC and list the name of the DVD. I must not be doing something right on DVD profiler.

    Make sure you are only typing in the numbers BETWEEN the two end numbers that are smaller in font size on the UPC.
     
  16. Yep, did that. I get the same message.

    I've never used the Catnip program mentioned in the posts above but it seems that it my not be as user friendly as the program I've been using called CueVerter.I have never had any problems and have scanned over 100 discs.NO typing involved. CueVerter will also start DVD Profiler for you.It really is a great program.YOU CAN FIND IT HERE> CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD CUEVERTER
     
  18. I still have a problem with the software. I used CueVerter and it works fine. I scan the UPC and it shows up right in DVD Profiler but it still tells me that it cannot find it in the database. Also when I update my list it locks and I have to end task and reinstall the software. Any other thoughts for me?? Or should I just send an email to Profiler's tech support.
