Yeah, "Fubar"'s totally missed the point.

Personally I've been using Where Is It for years (http://www.whereisit-soft.com), and I must say this is one of the very few shareware programs I've ever felt was worth the money (and no, they're not paying me to say this).

Sometimes there's just no way you can remember everything that's on a CD based on just its label (especially when a CD can hold hundreds, or thousands, of small files--the problem is even worse with DVDs). This sort of program is infinitely more convenient than having to insert a disc just to take a look at the tree structure. Especially if that disc is in a box containing hundreds of other discs, sitting next to other similar boxes, under a desk, in a closet, etc.

Congratulations for completely and entirely missing the point of this program fubar!
I'd like to see you find an old word document or photoshop file in Winamp!

But at least you worded it in a nice friendly way lol!

Anyway, I've been using Advanced Disk Catalogue for a while but I think I'll check this out - I keep a lot of archived stuff in a flight case with about 100 CDs + 50 DVDs so it's nice to be able to put my finger on a specific file when I need to

why the hell would i want to pay 21 quid for this when winamp does it better ? strange and for less 6mbs of program , real bargain Not!


Lets Face it if you fit all the following three....

* What if you need one of your disks, but you cannot remember where it is?
* What if you need an important file on a disk but you cannot remember on which disk it is stored?
* What if you just want to know what files are on your disks?

then why the hell you on a comp if you cant keep it all organised totally defies the point doesn't it ?

:blink: I have 7 HDD (more than 1 TB) and more than 400 DVD's with photos, films, music and soft. Who can remember that all???

Personally I choose Camel Disc Catalog (http://www.td-soft.net/cdc.htm)
I also tried Smart CD Catalog and WhereIsIt. And WhereIsIt is cool. But several thing turn me to Camel Disc Catalog:
1) I have a lot of MP3 with UTF tags. And WhereIs bad displays it.
2) I can browse my base when adding disc in CDC and can't do that in WhereIsIt (and loading DVD with lot of photos not very fast process)
3) WhereIsIt has too complex interface.
4) And finally Camel Disc Catalog is cheap, only 15$).
