I used both DVDprofiler and DVDaficionado. Good thing with DVDprofiler is mas detailed yung description ng mga DVDs from the cast upto the disc formats. DVDaficionado naman is much simplier and easy to use.  ::)

Thanks to this thread, I now use DVD Aficionado

Although I still keep my MS Access DVD List updated as a back up.

Thanks again to this forum, DVD cataloguing is now a breeze. ;D

I don't have that much dvds to catalog them. I have a list that I haven't updated in ages. And they all have those name and address labels with Marvin The Martian.  ;D

I use Excel since I don't have that many DVDs. But these posts are intriguing me so I might check out DVD aficionado. :)

i don't know if this is the right place to post this

but if I had enough DVD's

I would catalog them by director

(and if I have even more time I would arrange them chronologically)

in the meantime, i use DVDaficionado.com

coz its cheap!
(ay, free pala) ;)

Come again ? Autobiographically ? How can you catalog your DVDs according to your 'life story' ?

Well that approximates how I fix my most recently acquired DVDs:  according to when I bought them.  The most recently acquired DVDs go to one end of the row on the shelf.  This is my method while I figure out how the hell I am going to arrange everything!?  ???  There are 5 different places where I store my DVDs and I am running out of space!!!

Something like...

I bought this DVD at the time when I was feeling blue in October 1999...This DVD I bought with my boyfriend at a sale during a big thunderstorm in November 2000...Something like that. Saw this in the movie "High Fidelity" where the main character was compiling his Vinyl collections, autobiographically. ;) Can't explain it really well here.  :-/

So you have alphabetically, by actors/director, or by categories.  This one just complicates it but there's a meaning behind the way you compile your stuff.....

I use DVDbase in my Palm Pilot to keep track of my DVDs/VCDs.  You can download a demo software from Handango.com and try it yourself.

Natawa ko when I read this and recognized where it came from. Particularly since it was the number 1 Cusack fan who wrote it.  ;) But you gotta be impressed with Rob since he had I think 3 thousand records!

I simply stack mine, no cataloging. If I crave to watched again one of my collection I just simply pull it out from the stack

I catalogue my dvd collection in my pocketpc using the software Listpro. I divide them into the following categories: 'Already have', 'On their way', 'to buy', and 'to research'. I also have a sub-directory for some titles I have on vhs.

I also have a synched copy of this file in my office pc (which I can stare at for hours during those times when I have nothing to do  ;)).
