    I'm sure this has been posted once but I can't find it on a search, so I'll ask again. Does anyone know of a program similar to DVD Profiler that works for CD's?

    It's worth giving Catraxx a try. It's not free but there is a shareware version available. It's fairly powerful although not as intuitive/user-friendly as DVD Profiler.

    It uses the CDDB database to obtain info for your CDs. Simply pop one in your CD Rom drive and a couple of seconds later, all the info is logged in the database. A handy batch entry system means you can scan multiple CDs in one session and look them up, collectively, later.

    There was a rumour that the DVD Profiler team were working on a CD equivalent....not that I could find anything on the web about it.

    Whiting,

    No offence mate, but the idea of popping each CD in the drive and waiting for it to spin sounds horrible. It's okay if you've only got about 50 CDs to enter, but if you've got hundreds it would take bloody ages :(

    If the DVDProfiler team create CDProfiler, that'll be a winner. UPC entries really are the quickest, easiest way to get this stuff into a database. Shame Guzzlefish doesn't recognise UPCs :(

    Well it's not too bad, to be honest. Best if you couple it with something else...like reading this fine forum for example :)

    Believe me, waiting for the CD to spin is a lot more preferable than manually adding them to an Access database which is the method I use to use.

    Must admit, I'm not looking forward to the vinyl...:(

    I don't keep track of my CDs at all at the moment. If I'd done it from Day One like I did with my DVDs, I'd have been alright. I will hold out for CDProfiler :D

    I'm gonna wait until they're all on there, it's bit un-impressive at the moment. :blush: Plusm about 6 of my discs aren't listed so I need to find all the relevant info to add them to their DB. Does anyone know a good site to get .jpg's of covers, not too big?

    Amazon ? I guess not if the stuff is rare.

    Could try Gemm -- sometimes the sellers stick a small jpg of the item up.

    Tools | Internet Options | Delete Files

    When the cache gets full up, it shows all pics as .bmp when you download them. IE bug ;)

    I have had CATraxx now for about a week now & would definitely recommend it.
    I would say it is a much more powerful tool than DVD Profiler
    You can use it for your MP3's too which saves on scanning your CD's
    You can also link your scanned Cd's to MP3 files,video files & all sorts
    I am finding more & more uses for it by the day.
    Well worth the £25:)
