No only about 600 - but I'm nursing an old P2 200 w/ 384MB of RAM (Win2k). But it works - holding out for a hot deal on upcoming 64-bit hardware for XP.

It automatically happens when you run it the first time.

About 1800 titles took less than 10 secs to convert for me.

Does DVD Profiler allow you to download the complete database (rather than on a title by title basis) so that a PC doesn't have to be connected to the Internet when adding titles?

Just want to make sure that you follow what I'm asking. I'd like to launch the program and have it download the content of all movie titles (i.e. have it add all titles to my wishlist and simply flip the "switch" to owned when bought). Can this be done?

No. But even if your a dialup user you should have unlimited internet and a local phone number...

Thanks for the info. It took about 15 second or so for me to convert 637 titles. I'll have to check it out more later on when I have some free time.

What happened to the two additional catagories that used to be under the Movie Review...I think Video and Sound quality? When did those go away?
