Is there a good program to catalog DVD/CD's ?

Postby XXXXX on Fri May 28, 2004 3:00 pm

I used to use 1Disk, and more recently tried the catalog feature of Stuffit to make an easy searchable catalog listing of all the data (various files, MP3, etc.) that I have on many CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and wondered if anyone knows of any better programs to do this. Thanks!

i've never tried it myself, but some other people posted good things about it here in these forums:

I use CD Bank Cataloger for keeping track of what is on my various CDR's. I like it a lot. Check it out here:

That looks like the best program so far. The documentation is not very good, and wonder if you could help me with these questions before I pay to register it. (I sent it to their support email also).

I am using this with data files (all types of downloaded files, drivers, text files, data backup, etc.) on CD & DVD, and also for mp3's I have stored on CD & DVD's. I have about 200 CD-R's and about 30 DVD's, so I wonder if that will be too large for this database to display.

  • 1) I do not understand is the features to "import files to storage" ? Is this actually copying all of the files on a CD or DVD to my hard drive? If so, I don't see where in the "C:\Program Files\CD Bank" the files from the CD or DVD are being copied to.
  • 2) What are the 4 drop down choices of xxxx-cdb_is for?
  • 3) What are the categories of checkboxes (music, picture, video, etc.) used for in the search bar? I do love how they allow partial word/character searching
  • 4) I tried to do an archive to a location, but nothing happened. No file was stored. What do you need to backup to keep your records of the catalogs?
  • 5) What is the Exe_Preview.dll file used for?


Thanks!

OK, I got all of my questions answered from their support email. I now think this is the fastest and best of all of these catalog programs I have found. I registered it yesterday.

Thanks again for the tip.

Where do they get these guys?
