What do you use to track your DVDs?
What does everyone here use to track their DVD collection?  Personally, I had been using DVDProfiler, but now just got into FlixSociety.com; which is a bit newer but seems a heck of a lot deeper.  I had also considered using a library dewey decimal system (lol) for the cases as well.

I use www.dvdafiocionado.com.
Sure, DVDProfiler is more detailed, but it's a pain to navigate.
With DVDAfiocionado, it only takes a couple seconds to add a title to your DVD collection.

I used Intervocative's DVD Profiler for awhile, but as Jonathan said, it becomes a real pain to use. DVD Aficionado is much simpler, updated considerably faster, and doesn't require any installation.

My favorite by far is DVD Spot.com. Their service is free, easy, and requires no installation. It is well organized and extremely intuitive. Click on "My Collection" link and check it out.

I use DVD Profiler.  I don't find anything about it difficult to use.  I'm just curious if someone who doesn't like DVD Profile would care to share what the other databases do that is much easier and/or better than Profiler.  I doubt I'll switch since it would a pain to re-enter everything, but I'm always interested in usability features.

DVD Aficionado all the way. Easy to navigate and easy to update.

I tried DVDSpot. Some of my titles aren't on there, so I use Aficionado.

I use DVDAfiocionado because it's quick and easy.  What I really do like is what Jonny mentionned, collectorz, but I don't want to pay any fee.

Thanks Tony. It's a hot off the press pic of her just days before she shaved her hair off.

May I ask what is wrong with the DVDActive layout, Chris? I don't know if this is just my computer but it says "DVDActive: Image available exclusively from www.dvdactive.com" whenever you post, and your text will be written right under it.

Oh, and you're welcome Jonny.

Try hitting Control-F5 Tony. That should sort it. There seems to be something a little wrong with the image protection system at the moment.

I ran into that only a couple of times on DVD Spot. However, the submission process is quite easy if you own a scanner and feel like contributing to the site. I much more prefer the graphic layout to DVD Aficionado. In addition, larger collections are forced to break down their listings into subfiles. DVD Spot is just more intuitive and easily allows you to post reviews, personal ratings, where you bought, when you bought and what you paid. It's also easy to access member statistics and has some terrific collection-building tools.

I use an Excel spreadsheet and Dvdspot.com

No complaints so far, but then again I have maybe 120 dvd's.

I have been using DVDProfiler for a few years and I don't see anything wrong with it! They keep upgrading it and adding more and more usefull items so I tend to keep using it. The only thing that bothers me is that the images are really low res (unless you are a premium member) so what I do is upload the front and back covers from DVDEmpire which are in really good quality!

I'll have to pay attention to this the next time that I have DVD Profiler open.  I've never noticed that it sucks any more resources than any other windows program.

I use my eyes. There they are I say when I see them.

Also, I'd be careful about putting your collections on the net for others to see. If one were so inclined, one might like to find out where one lives and break and enter one's house and relieve one of one's collection. Then one wouldn't be requiring the tracking of one's DVD's, would one?

I track mine mainly for insurance purposes, and my home has security systems by ADT and Smith & Wesson...along with Louisville Slugger in a pinch.

That is an often overlooked reason.  Uploading the collections to the web also give you a backup if your computer is stolen as well.
