Keeping track of DVD's

How do you guys keep a track of the dvds that you need to buy that are old or the newly released ones. I am looking for a way to keep track of what I need to buy on DVD or HD-DVD or Blu Ray disc. I know you ccan keep a list on imdb but it does not give you the option whether you want it on hd-dvd or blue ray, its just in dvd,cd, vhs etc.
I am just tired of going through various websites and keeping a list on excel and stuff. there has to be a simple way to do this.

Anyone?

I have read that thread. What I am looking for is something hwere I can create a wishlist and arrane it to different categories. For example. To buy, HD-DVD, Blu Ray, Different Genres etc. I want to have it in one place so that if there is a movie that is going to be reased I can search for it on that website and put it in my To Buy category. Does this make sense.

the brain is actually the best way of doing this (the easiest to maintain and update). of course, that's out if you've got poor memory

I use both DVDSpot and DVD Aficionado. If I had to recommend one I would use DVDSpot because it is quick and easy as well as it helps you to keep track of your spending if that's something that interests you

i used to use dvd spot to keep track of what I wanted but I found it easier to use a notebook. Can keep in car when i go out, before go in store look in notebook and pick a few movies I want. remember them and go in store and buy.

I used to keep my "wish list" in a notebook, but now it's a text file on my computer. I haven't had a working database of what I own in quite a while, but when I finally get around to it, I'll probably be using FileMaker Pro. I'm not sure if it has any capability for a "wish list" but Delicious Library is fantastic for keeping track of what you own. If you're a Windows user, MediaMan is almost identical.

Another plus about DVDSpot is that you can share that list online with anybody that you want. I got tired of always returning DVDs that family would buy that I didn't really want. Now I just point them to my DVDSpot Wishlist.
