Vanessa N Does anyone here have experiences with the various cataloguing programs? Mediaman (which I had really liked a year or so ago, but looks like it may never be offered on Bits again according to the developer), the Collectorz families, the current My Book Library, and others?

The nice thing about Media Man is that you can store any type (books, music, movies, etc), whereas the others are geared towards having you buy a separate program for each separate type. On the other hand if there's a program family that has very few bugs/problems (I used W7 64-bit) and which is attractive to use (such that you'll actually use it), I'd spend a little more for that.

I have way too many books, movies and CDs (although the worst are the books). I now have to stop myself from buying books at the bookstore until I can go home and figure out whether I've bought it already, because I discovered while moving recently that I own 2, sometimes three, copies of 2-3 books.....

_*_ I bought All My Books just the other week and really like it. I do think it is too bad it is only for books, but for $9.95 I cannot kick at that.

The one thing I like about All My Books is that fact it shows the book selected, but also a synopsis of the book in a right hand pane. The other programs seem to simply list Title, Author, ISBN, etc.

You may want to check out the site and ask if they are going to offer this on Bits again.

Vanessa N Thanks M B, for your thoughts. The recent Bits du Jours offerings for a couple of different cataloguing programs had prompted my question.

Hope there are others out there who own these kinds of programs that can chime in.....

anthonyraynor I am using Collectorz movie software. They are constantly working on the product as well as offering mobile device, and internet device portability for your collection. It's worth a trial, see what you think.
        Mar 13 2011 at 8:16am
Vanessa N The ability to be able to carry my collection with me (to make sure I don't buy duplicates!) is valuable. Do you do so (carry around your collection on a device) and if so which platforms?

There's a fellow who has made an iOS app for Media Man, but that's as far as I know for Media Man being able to be ported around....

Thanks for your input~

anthonyraynor I originally purchased Movie Collectorz through the BJD promotion. Since then I have purchased their cloud sync option and android app. The online app can work alone or in conjunction with the desktop application. The desktop app can sync with my Droid X so I always have a complete list of my DVD collection. As far as the movie software, it works with iphone, ipod and ipad.

I like the company as they are always pushing out updates, newsletters and discounts. I have purchased a lot of crappy software in the past, but these guys really seem to want your business. You can get a trial on any product and see what you think.

I also have Mediaman, but just haven't had the opportunity to use it yet, but will post my opinion if my two young kids let me have time.

Max Murkel @ Vanessa:

Have a look at

everything you want is there, admittedly not as "one for all" application. Catraxx f.e. seems to become the standard for audiophiles more and more and it works great. Fredrik Nordbakke, the author, provides excellent support if necessary.
