I love this app. I've been using it at least since 2011 when it came bundled with Toast Titanium (remember burning CDs and DVDs?). I never used it to catalog CDs but it's been super helpful for keeping track of the 40 plus hard drives in my catalog. Way easier to search for media through DiskCatalogMaker (previously DiscCatalogMaker) than mounting all of the drives individually. The number of times a client has asked for an old video and I was able to locate it, grab the drive, drop it in my caddie and pull up the file has made this software worth its weight in gold. Happily paid for the upgrade recently when Apple stopped supporting 32-bit applications.

Working in video production, we're constantly juggling large amounts of media across multiple external hard drives. DiscCatalogMaker has been invaluable in keeping track of where to find projects/media, PLUS a quick way to check how much space is left on each drive. It saves so much time and hassle not having to individually mount and eject each drive just to see what's on it. DiscCatalogMaker is a HUGE time saver and one of the very most useful pieces of software in our daily toolkit. The only thing I would like to see improved is for each drive to display with the custom icons I assign to each (rather than uniform, generic hard drive icons). It's a small thing that just helps visually locate drives in the list more quickly. To be fair, this feature could already exist and I just haven't figured it out yet.

What an app for Catalonia and BigSur due to spotlight no longer returning search results in a timely manner. We use it as a server catalog for distribution and let our remote designers search a PDF of over 1 million files from or server archive. E!

Excellent app. I've been using it since 2007. I used to manage CDs and DVDs with it, but now have everything down to 5-6 offline hard drives that I catalog with the app. It's easy to search for files on those drives and retrieve files from archival.

App works great so far. I tried it out alongside the competition and this is the app I went with. Nicely laid out, simple to use, and does what it says on the tin. Room for improvement with little tiny quality of life things, but they're barely needed, since the app works great.

If you're looking for a simple archive system for multiple disks, stop looking. I've been using this neat little app for years and it does exactly what you expect for a very reasonable price. Ignore the freebies, put your hand in your pocket and get this one. Simply and efficiently rips the file names from your drive and stores them in a search engine so you know what is where. Job done.

This is exactly what i was looking for. I have used Disk Tracker for 15 years and looked for a successor as it does not work under MacOS 10.15 and later. This program imports the files from DiskTracker flawlessly with all details, and is very fast in seraching and cataloguing. Highly recommended.

With the unfortunate demise of the once venerable DiskTracker, DiskCatalogMaker to the rescue. After using it for a week, bought a license today and well worth it seeing that I am the new owner of a Synology NAS and need to catalog my files. The layout is simple and intuitive and scan (on an 2019 iMac) is quick; a tad slower on NAS as it goes through the network. Nice surprise to see the latest update 8.2.8 which quashes some Big Sur bugs.

I received my first version of DiskCatalogmaker with Roxio Toast back in 2006. I can give you that year with certainty because DiskCatalogMaker let me find my original setup files among the 40 hard drives I currently have as a wedding and event photographer and video producer. It just works. I really couldn't ask for more nor would I want more. It's such a necessity though if you work with any amount of removable media to have a program like this and they do a great job! I'm happily paying my small token of appreciation to re-up on the newest version!

This application came in a reduced version with Roxio Toast, and I loved it as soon as I started using it to index my hard drives where I archived old files. I purchased the full version and index everything I can mount! It's super super fast in locating files; no one else does such a terrific job.

Having tried several cataloguing tools, this one excels. Good performance, easy to use UI, fast searching, thumbnail support. The only downside for me is the proprietary catalog file format and no AppleScript support, preventing integration into custom automated workflows.
