That's strange, it works fine on Windows. Is it the only field that doesn't accept a new value ?

I think you should report this bug:

I think what would ultimately useful would be the ability to distinguish between various releases for movies, mostly blu-ray. For instance, so you know which specific blu-ray release you have and are able to compare it to other releases, including your wish list.

Personally I have no use for that feature, but did you find a program that can do it ?

Not so far. I think you just have to take list and do that work yourself with websites like bluray.com, dvd compare and dvd beaver. Quite frankly, I still find that in order to get the last word, you have to ask questions. I don't know how many times I see a movie or film released several times and you still can't tell all the differences and/or which is the best release. Amazon and eBay etc are useless because they never describe the contents of the release. Ultimately you have to research yourself because the above websites aren't always correct or simply aren't up to date. The best method is to research on those websites and also ask on the forums. Unfortunately, bluray.com reviews a release, but when you search a movie, you see there are different versions for the same region, for different regions etc and bluray.com doesn't give you the heads up as to what the differences are for the north american releases they are reviewing and/or how they differ compared to other region releases. Again, you still have to research and ask questions. Asking on bluray.com has worked for me so far. If you ask a question, odds are, somebody, if not a few people will know the answer.

From what I understand, it looks like the data that you want simply doesn't exist. It'd be a dream if it existed, but unfortunately it doesn't.

Yep. Still, with the use of a database, you can make your own subdatabase where you get the info from the database and the other websites.

I agree, but what I wanted to say is that the level of details that you wish for isn't available in any database out there. I think DVD Profiler has the more accurate DVD information, but that's still not enough for what you described.

You didn't mention the Cinema Squid database which is another valuable resource.

I've tried several collection management applications, and DVD Profiler is the only one with an adequate database. I want to catalog the EXACT version of the DVD/Blu-rays that I own, and DVD Profiler's database is the only one that comes close. Especially with the 600+ OOP and rare imports that I have and love. When you start collecting imports, you quickly realize there can be an astounding number of releases all with wildly varying degrees of quality (audio, video, subtitles, cut/uncut, packaging, special features, etc), and certain versions become highly sought-after or rare. As a collector, this is very important to me.

I can't believe how lucky I was, read on

I am an avid movie collector who has tried several software programs which failed miserably, were not stable failed after I scanned and manually installed well over 500 movies which took hours and hours to put them in. The software was clumsy and painstaking to use. By luck and chance I came upon collectorz which creates an easy to use, beautiful interface with all the cover art and astonishing and useful info about the movies, cast, creation of the movie and a comprehensive insiders look at all the detail you could want. I just finished a gorgeous project to create an insert with  full extension ball bearing drawer slides as a proper place to have complete access to my entire collection. It will hold well over 1000 to1300 DVD and blu ray discs which I will finally be able to see whenever I wish. Since I am retired and disabled with an arthritic spine which makes me use an electric wheelchair to get around. My movies are very important and having this kind of database is really a godsend. the back and forth interface is brilliant and I have 5 devices to put them on,maybe over kill but so satisfying to just know I have them. If you have a movie collection and simply want to know what they are, you can scan the barcodes, or simply start typing in the name or other info. I just can't imagine a better designed, well thought out impressive software that has matured over 15 years into something akin to a work of art. Getting to look at all the original cover art ads a beautiful glimpse into what the film makers intended to put on film with the proper flavors of their design.
When you come across something as wonderfully delightful as this to use, one feels compelled to share their discovery with other fans, I’m not sure of the title, they could have chosen better but that is really nit picking, suffice it to say , the interface is really, really good, the best by far that I have tried and that is more important than a lot of aspects of what makes software good, try it and since i have about 750 ebay 100% positive feedbacks, that is my street cred, and heck, who would spend as much time as I have , writing a free review like this
if it wasn’t really good, wow
