Impressive. That's the first thoughts you will have when you start using this program. Not only is it easy to use, but the resource features that it has will be amazing to you as well. AVCataloger does what its names implies: it catalogs all your existing videos, software archives, your entire music collection, an entire library of books as well as more! No matter what you have, AVCataloger can probably catalog it for you, keeping your entire collection in one, easy-to-use program. Because AVCataloger is totally customizable it is sure to fit your collection well.

Let's say you have 100's of books and you need quick access to the titles, authors or other important data. AVCataloger lets you enter your entire library (though only 30 entries in each category in the Unregistered Version). After you have your data entered you then can cross-reference them in a number of meaningful ways. Group them by genre, author, date, or more! Want to have a detailed report, in a variety of ways? No problem. Need to graph them out in a number of ways? No problem! You can create a number of customized Reports or Graphs for any of the data areas (Video, Software, Books, and CDDB).

Not enough power you say? Check out the great CDDB feature. I was able to catalog 15 CD's in less than 5 minutes! (And I never typed a single word!) After registering with the CDDB site, which is free in itself you simply insert your CD into the drive (make sure you are connected to the Internet), click on the "Scan CD" and almost instantly all data and any information databased for that CD is taken from the CDDB database and placed into the proper fields within AVCataloger (fields such as Track Title, Genre, Record Label, Musician, Date, Duration, and more). If your particular CD is not in the CDDB database click a button and submit it to the site for archiving.

This is one program that is simple enough for the general user and powerful enough for even the die-hard collector! You should be able to get started right away with little or no Help at all. It is completely customizable so how you want your data inputted is totally up to you. AVCataloger has many more features you need to check out for yourself. Check their site out as soon as you can. Great support is just an email away should you ever need it.
