Have been using this app for a few years. After a recent re-install, I had to get it again, but the developer has abandoned it. Using Archive.org I found the developer had made the app free by providing the license code on his website, but now even the website is offline.

Now I can't purchase, or register for free because it is simply GONE. Can anybody provide the free registration info the developer provided before his site went down?

He was good enough to let you download it and provide a serial number. Right now, free works for what I need. Thanks developer!

It's a shame to see this discontinued. It has come in very handy for me and always worked well. I'm hoping for a comeback. In the mean time, it still works so I'll keep using it.

Can anybody provide the licence information since this is now discontinued freeware? The developer's site is offline, and I have this app locked without the free licence code that was on his site.

To the Developer. PLEASE ADD AUTO SERIALIZATION OPTION. It is much easier (at least in my experience) to serialize and organize all DVD's and CDs by name and serial numbers (comes in handy when you have many "Untitled" CD.

In my opinion this trial version is a bit too much crippled and renders the trial period unusable.
First, you are limited to 5 media in the catalog. How i'm supposed to see if it fits my need with, say, 300+ media?
Second, it keeps popping its register screen on every start up. It is like a clerk continuously remembering you need to buy the book you are flipping through if you want to read it all. I know that! Leave me alone reading here and there to see if it is an interesting reading!

Feature wise, has some quirks which need attention.
It is not keyboard friendly and so you need to switch to the mouse to move from the task pane to the main form.
For a strange reason it is not coming with any result if you use wildcards.
It has a strange delay between the media eject and the aplication updating itself with new media indexed.

All in all, it is a good application but i keep testing alternative in search for the better fit for my bucks.
At this time, i'm more oriented to buy CDFinder (i'm trying it and it is keeping me nervous with the same absurd remainder behavior. What gives with the media cataloging software Developers?!).

Great program for easy searching large archives.
We use it for about 1000 DVD's / CD's. And even with this "big" archive its fast to use.
Since version 3.7 its a lot faster then before.

In my opion its the program you need for easy archiving CD's / DVD's.

by far the WORST app for this sort of thing. It hangs, there is NO way to determine which separate NAMED catalog you're dealing with at the moment, and there's not even an pictorial icon feature to show what file you're dealing with... Oh yeah, it crashes to no end.

"by far the WORST app for this sort of thing. It hangs, there is NO way to determine which separate NAMED catalog"

The concept is that you have one (1) catalog which contains all volumes added. Once you search you can easily see which items are on which volume.


"even an pictorial icon feature to show what file you're dealing with..."

Now I do believe there's that large thingie at the bottom which shows a large icon which depicts your filetype in just the way the Finder does.


"Oh yeah, it crashes to no end."

How about instead you go online giving me a bad name, you ask me first if I happen to know why this happens, or possibly give me a chance to fix it. Every Media Catalog user will tell you that I always reply, and try to fix their problems as soon as possible.

But ofcourse that would require you to undertake positive action, while it is way easier just to go online and flame the application.

Uh, this is extremely basic. New with version 3.0 was the ability to actually see the list of volumes catalogued. Go figure.
Others can catalog a LOT more data...

That's incorrect. You could see the list of volumes cataloged with previous versions, you could also browse them, but 3.0 has made it a lot easier to do so for users...
