BTW, I thought I'd mention that I am also using WhereIsIt? - or actually I am severely underusing it! I've created a catalog of each of my HDD's and - well, that's about it. I update them regularly and save them. Duh! Other than that I don't have any idea what to do with this software. I ended up getting Collectorz.com apps for my DVDs, CDs, and Books, and SoftCAT for my software inventory. So that leaves WhereIsIt? as the perennial bridesmaid, but never a bride. Documentation is disappointingly thin and the application itself is somewhat less than intuitive.

If anyone has any tips on decent uses for WhereIsIt? I'd love to hear them. Otherwise it's getting booted.

Thanks!

It´s weird to see a whereisit user not being a big fan of it using it only for HD-tracking. The most important sense is to use it for filesearches on external data media, not only for locals.

I guess - but doesn't Locate32 and/or Everything search those just as fast, if not faster? Or does WhereIsIt? also index the contents? If so, then there's a feature I was not aware of.

Thanks!

The main value of WhereIsIt?, in my opinion, is that it saves a list of all of the contents of you media in one searchable location. So, you don't have to have the CD/DVD in a drive to review its contents - indeed, you can have 200 CD's and DVD's indexed and available fron one file. It's always worked flawlessly for me in this capacity.

You mean by inserting the disks into the drive and letting WhereIsIt? read them, correct? That's cool but I already have all that catalogged in Movie and Music Collector.

I meant to do that... that's obviously why I put a smiley face at the end of it. No other explanation worth looking at, is there? Well, IS there? No. I thought not. Moving along...

OK - No, I don't have any data CD/DVD's in the Collectorz.com software. Then again, other than CD's with software installation files I don't really have many. I stopped backing up to DVD's when my data files became too large to fit on them. I use external drives instead.

Like I said, I do use it to keep all my HDD's catalogged and I update those weekly. But as I said also, I can't help but to feel like I am so underusing the application. It appears - at least from the documentation that does come with it - that it is mostly designed to catalog media disks.

Thank you.

Yeah, your experience is similar to mine, Jim - I back up everything to external HDs now: OS and software instals to disc images and documents and software installers to folders. However, I *did* backup everything to CD-R for about 10 years, so have about 300 discs lying around. I was never able to cram all the contents onto the disc label with a Sharpie, so bought WhereIsIt? to catalogue what I had and where.

This list was compiled by Crush. Updated using a version from 2009-02-14

Crono wrote a batch file that made it possible to convert it from a spreadsheet to this:

Okay, just to confirm I've finalised the updating of the list combining a list from Crush (2009-02-14) with the current list (which was also based on an older list from Crush)

added a few more new ones and updated a few more old ones Wink
I made some big mistakes along the way so if you see any wrong urls please let me know!

Just for the heck of it I catalogged my CD's with WhereIsIt?. I already have them in Music Collector but I wanted to see WhereIsIt do something other than just catalog my HDD's (Boring!). It did a nice job with my CD's. No cover art or anything; just the contents, which is all you really need.

Camel Disc Catalog v.2.2.2 released today.

Full changelog: http://www.cameldisc.com/history.html

For me best new feature is several images per file support. So I can assign poster and several screenshots for every film in collection. They also added rescan option and video file preview, so it become useful not only for CD\DVD but also for HDD cataloging.

CD Bank Cataloguer
http://www.qunomsoft.com/
there is development in alpha stage that can be downloaded

corrected website address
anyone using this one?

i won this program in a DC giveaway but for a long time it seemed that the software had become abandonware so i had to switch to another cataloguer. more details here: CD Bank Cataloguer abandoned?

thats just sad:(

i guess the question is whether any of these other catalog programs can import the cdbank database.  and how open are the other programs database/export/import functions.  it would suck to be locked into another programs database when that software becomes abandonware as well.  sometimes even open source is abandoned.  perhaps thats an issue with this area of software, no standard format for a database.

CDC uses SQLite database format. It also has internal import format based on JSON, but as I know there are no converter from CD Bank...
