For software, I'd recommend these guys: Collectorz.com

Online tracking....well, there's dvdaf.com, dvdspot and others. There isn't one best way. Just try them all and see which you prefer.

I'll 2nd DVD Profiler. Check it out at DVD Profiler . You can keep your collection BOTH at home and ON THE www!! Nice. To see the web style you can have check my signature line. To see what the at home collection software can do check out their website. There are several threads on this forum about DVD Profiler! Search can be your friend.

i prefer DVDAf for hosting my collection, but i have DVDSpot bookmarked for looking up the specs of DVDs. i like dvdaf's ease and look/layout, though.

just downloaded DVD Profiler, and I like it loads more than DVDaf or DVDSPOT!
Thanks for recommending. Do you know how to migrate my DVDAF titles into DVD Profiler?

Thanks.

beleive me I used the free service for years and when the new update came and we had to start paying I looked for another service, Dvd Profiler is by far the best well worth the 30.00, plus its a onetime fee and there are several advantages to having the payed service, better images, free upgrades and if you read the forums there are add on that are not included in the software yet, like headshots for cast and crew.


ITS THE BEST!!!

Yeah I loved DVDSPOT too until I got banned. It's been 2 months now and I can't get back on and they wont answer my e-mails.

I couldn't be convinced to pay anything for one of these services (I'll use the money I saved on more DVDs perhaps). DVD Spot's been good for me.

Mircosoft Word. It's easiest to me because you don't have to go online of your in a hurry & It's free.

I agree with cardsfan111, I would never pay for software to keep track of my DVD Collection because I would rather save that money up for DVDs every tuesday instead.

I liked Profiler 2.4 until they disabled many of the features in the free version.

I liked Aficionado, but they recently changed their look & feel, and it's also difficult to navigate and get new DVDs added.

I mostly use Spot now, which had been my third favorite before the recent tumult.

Another vote for DVD Profiler. Been using it for years and absolutely love it. I also keep a DVD Spot account updated, but only for statistic purposes.

I'll stick with MS Access. I could care less if it's online.
