Here is a link to a free Excel spreadsheet that puports to contain most DVD's in existance (comercially released). It looks quite comprehensive.

http://hometheaterinfo.com/dvdlist.htm


It includes UPC codes for each DVD, so you could use a bar code scanner to scan your DVD's, find it in this spreadsheet, then highlight that row with another color.


Then, use

or

http://www.cpearson.com/excel/SortByColor.htm


to add color-sort capability to Excel, and you can easily extract your DVD collection from the master list!


Not bad for a free list.


Post links to other free DVD databases, either downloadable or interactive web-based DVD databases.


Are there any freedb/ CDDB equivalents for DVD's?

Nice link, Jim.


I was kind of leaning towards other free lists you could download, the point being to elimante any manual data entry when cataloging your personal collection, saving a local database.


The spreadsheet linked to abopve represents a HUGE amount of wrok in manual typing of all the data in each cell.


Using a populated spreadsheet, you don't need to enter anything, just highlight or copy/paste the rows for DVD's you own.

There is some manual entry. But it's just entering a keyword in the search engine to locate the dvd and then clicking on a button to add that dvd's info to your collection. Not much really. Of course a UPC reader would be quicker and, yes, Guzzlefish is tied to an internet connection and not very portable. Perhaps they will develop a printer friendly version.
