    Hi

    Does anyone know of a simple way to create a catologue of the DVD's that I own?

    I just want a simple list of what I have, and which version / region and want to try and do it without having to write it all out / type it up.

    Main reason I want it is so that I can export it to my PDA and try and not keep buying the same DVD's more than once (yes, I am that stupid).

    Apologies if this has been covered before, a search revealed nothing, but I couldn't think of many keywords to use.

    I use my own custom database created in MS Access 2000.

    but you still need to enter every title by name and enter the region as well, right?

    I like dvdprofiler: enter UPC and voila and from time to time contribute a profile to keep the thing running.

    Yes but I found that a lot of my titles weren't in and I couldn't be bothered entering the UPC code and details etc.

    Also didn't like the irrelevant 'record number field' that makes no sense especially if you delete a title then you are left with 'gaps' in this field.

    Why can't they just calculate the record total from the number of records like we db developers do. Never heard of a db that stores 'record numbers' before (maybe I'm just being picky) :lesson:
