Databasing A DVD And CD Collection

Tue Apr 10, 2007 4:46 am

Ok so i want to database my DVD and CD selection so i know what i have and what i don't.

I want to be able to have a searchable database that i can enter all of my CD's and DVD's into and have data such as Region, Running Time, Director, Title, Actor's, etc.

I use MAC so need software that works on Mac or an Excel spreadsheet that can be updates by myself.

What do you all use to database your collections?

Chris

BTW, i have nearly 1,200 DVD's and 2,300 CD's now so it needs to be an extensive database!  Smile

Don't bother with a database man.

You don't need another hobby. Go outside and lay in the sun, live a life! Big grin

I just want to database it so that i can keep a copy on my phone/pda so that i can look at it when im shopping, i keep buying doubles and forgetting. It's also so i don't have to look throw all of my rack's to find one i want.

I keep my list in Excel, but when I buy something, I buy it because I know I don't have it.

There are several free- or shareware applications for such a purpose as far as I'm aware. I myself simply know what I've got.
