GREAT app, with one feature request-be able to import/add folders of movies. right now you can only add from discs, and i have an external hard drive with a folder of movies. if i just do a "scan disc" of the drive, songs/apps turn up as well with no way to elimiate them (even if there was a way, a lot of them show up so it would take awhile to do so). othere than that this is JUST what i've been looking for.

The corrupted database was most likely because I had input customised genres in the genre field. Given that I use other movie databases for more complete information of mainstream movies, leaving the genre fields empty is not a big thing. What Moviestar does -- scanning the contents of a disc to input into a simple database of filename + location -- it does extremely well and it does it quickly. Now I can see quickly how many duplicate files I have, and save some of my bt bandwidth. On my G3 a DVD is mounted, scanned and catalogued in under a minute. My database now has +1300 files and it opens in less than 12 seconds. My other databases (Movie Collector and DVD Cache, both java-based) take much much longer and have much much more information. MovieStar is a perfect companion for any movie database that is dependent on iMDb or other sources because it keeps track of every file you have on a disc. And if you're not wanting to maintain a bloated database with poster, director, cast, plot, reviews, links, etc, etc, etc, this could easily be your only database. I'd rate this app high on every scale. The developer has done good. Thanks.

Ouch! I was really excited about this app -- near perfection in its simplicity. Spent two hours this morning mounting burned DVDs on the desktop to catalogue more than 1000 files, went the extra step of ensuring the genre was correct on all of them, and quit the app. In cleaning up I found a few more discs to add to the collection, and now the app won't open. AppleScript Error The variable list_table_data is not defined. (-2753) I was really really really liking this app :-(

I wish this app had the ability to control an imation disc stakka, the software for that is forever inventing discs that don't exist, or losing ones that do.
