I also use dvdaficionado. How can I install it in my Palm M125? Free download? Thanks!

I use MediaMan for storing the titles that I have in my Palm.  It can be downloaded for free.  Check mo na lang yung thread regarding Free Palmwares sa Tech Talk.

Hope this helps.  Good luck!  ;)

I use DVDaficionado. Anyway, can someone help me out?  I don't know how to create subfolders.  Thanks.

I'm no expert sa DVDafficionado, but I think there is a tutorial that would be able to help you in making your subfolders.  

Hope this helps.   ;)

I use Collectorz Movie Collector (http://www.collectorz.com) since it helps me manage my old (and large) laserdisc and VHS collection together with all my beautiful DVDs.

I see that majority of guys here prefers DVDafficionado against DVDprofiler, pero for me DVD Profiler is better.  For one you can use it even without an internet connection, its more private and you can change skins and even create your own with flash animations and more depends on you fancy and web authoring skills, can even put stills from your DVD movies, I just think its a lot cooler than DVD afficionado.  ;D

     Yeah it free, just download it from the web.   But for premium service you have to pay a membership fee, but honestly the value added services is not necessary, like the higher resolution DVD cover feature for premium members, you can get the covers from a different source anyway and better you can scan it yourself.

I use a program called ListPro . I find it to be a very useful program and handy too since i take my palm everywhere ... no more wondering if meron na ba ako or wala pa , just look at my palm and question answered kaagad :)

I wish i were using ListPro Professional though coz with that program you can use it both for PC and Palm. You just have to Hotsync your palm and updated na both PC and palm.

Posted nalang din the website just in case any of you guys are interested to take a look at the program  :)

dati Excel lang.  ngayon Excel and DVD Profiler.

with DVD Profiler:
- you know all the features of your DVDs
- easter eggs
- front and back cover images
- filters
- audio tracks, subtitles, cast, synopsis, etc.
- a lot more...

I'm the one who submitted the profiles for both Tanging Yaman and American Adobo. I've submitted other Star Cinema titles like Dekada '70 and Anak, but for some reason or other, they didn't get accepted.

Can't submit the VIVA titles, since the locally purchased ones don't have UPC numbers.

hi Mr. Big Boy!
check out your spelling.  Forest Gump is spelled as Forrest Gump, with a double r  ;)
I also had the same problem adding my Seven Platinum Series DVD coz I was trying to search for 'Seven'. When i tried Se7en, with a 7 in the middle, it worked!  ;D

Also, when adding new released titles, make sure you click on the'Refresh Online List from IVS' button to update the title list.

Hope this helps!  :D

LOL, talagang, lousy speller ako ever since.  But I don't think that matters at all, because when I type the title sa box field di ko na binubuo.  For... pa lang dapat nakikita ko na ung title sa Data field kaso di ko makita.  Maybe my DVD Profiler database got corrupted.

Thanks anyway.  ;D

I don't have a problem with DVD Profiler whatsoever & when you add new DVDs, it automatically updates the Online Profile List from IVS anyway. You should also update the profiles right after downloading a new profile list. Am not sure if I have the latest version, which is 2.1 but I know this is better from the previous version.  8)
