it did scan my NAS, but only what it thought was interested to the program not what actually was in directories.
actual first few tries to scan it would shut itself down right after few files. it happen about 7 times, then it was going ok.
After I have downloaded this program from original website to see if it is also so unstable as the giveaway. during installation i told it to install in different folder, but it has removed the free giveaway version and replaced with the one that i have downloaded through the link from the original vendor. At this point i have lost all my databases as well all the entries within, as well as the time to gather the information.
Another point, it said in description that can get CD artwork, but actually it seams of getting info only from the amazon site.
I find that MP3TAG.exe can do much better job even convert between code pages and UTF8. to organize albums i find much better choice to be mediamonkey that would also find album artworks and tracks. To find track names of the album i use winamp then send to autotaging, its not perfect but can find lots of unnamed tracks.
....I guess i lost my installation of the AllMySongsDatabase so i cannot do anymore evaluation

No Problem & EZ install on Vista Home, HP Laptop-
wow, went thru and indexed all of it- gave it 3 different locations to search from & all got there a-ok-So far no crashing nor burning here- & I cycled thru a couple of restarts thru this day {non-related} :)
I picked one title, by two artists-requested that artist info thinking I might see a burp/nope, brought the bio of the other joint projects they do also- for me, this should be a fun one.
I gotta say, from my use & needs I'd say a keeper - the adding files part was a tad hazy, little confused there & if anything I would add a video "show-me-how" for those worse at guessing what to try next... :)
Thanks for a second offer from Fotis & GOTD

It never ceases to amaze me how clueless people are about that which they interact with whenever they use their computer, the OS. Especially Windows 7 users, which has Libraries and far more impressive Search capabilities than even Vista (I'm not going to address ex-pee users, they're just clueless, period).

Where to begin? Win7's WMP 12 has all sorts of features. As always, all sorts of plugins are available, codecs for formats which aren't supported natively (avoid codec packs), etc. Starting with Vista, most menus are hidden by default, Alt will display them. (Alt) Help, About Windows Media Player, Technical Support Information will list the codecs which WMP 12 uses (DirectX Merit isn't listed). Note that some of the Microsoft codecs have license restrictions and are only available in WMC and user-launched WMP. (Alt) Tools, Options gives you access to all sorts of settings. The Devices options are very interesting. Check out the Properties for each device, and Advanced conversion options. WMP has all sorts of organization features, but even WMP 12 continues to have a crippled Search box, which ignores the natural language queries setting and requires the full Search syntax.

Windows 7 supports Libraries, including Music Libraries. Those Windows Explorer instances, as well as other uses of Windows Search, support natural language queries and partial matching, if enabled. Of course, Windows Explorer on Vista and higher has all sorts of useful features, including column selection and order, sorting, filtering, etc. I'm not going to get into the basics of Explorer and Search, you can find some things from Windows Help and Support, and searching Microsoft. Also checkout the Keyboard Shortcuts in Help and Support (not a complete list, some of those listed in a particular category may apply elsewhere).

Good program overall, everything should work fine.

However, MediaMonkey still runs more smoothly and with a nicer interface.
The interfact on this program should be *much* better than it is. It's not hard to create a fairly elaborate interface with Visualbasic; there should at least be the option to greatly expand it, especially on large screens.
If you're looking for a new program for managing your music, try MediaMonkey (coming from a guy who runs a music blog and has to keep up with a 600GB and fast-growing music library). Songbird is also catching up.

I don’t know if this is significant or not but after I installed and registered the program, it became unresponsive, but when I clicked the close window X button and opened up the program from the short cut on my desktop, the program opened up and it did say it was registered. I installed it on my Win 7 Pro 64 B laptop. I’ll give the program a try and see if it works even after that little hiccup and I’ll get back to you later if anything wrong happens.

@ #20, I have Their AllMyMovies DB, and I find myself in a similar situation as you do with your AllMyBooks. At some point in time the program ceased being able to import movie information from the Web, and just for good measure, shortly thereafter (or perhaps on the first failure), my existing database with entries already completed shyte the bed, so I can't access it either now. I just don't think I'm up to trusting their stuff with data that I would like to remain reliably accessible. Thanks, GAOTD, but no thanks on this one.

First of all this works fine! It is a fast database program geared for music. Windows7/Vista both 64 bit, I did a test 3300 songs took less than a minute from many sub folders.

Search feature also fast!

It's a shame that so many love to place negative comments. Seems many cannot read others do not understand. Forget all the negative here and JUST try it yourself.

It has a key it is NOT limited etc etc etc

Mike, #1, my flac files showed up after the scan but didn't have any info for most of them. Just the name.

David, #29, the registration key is in the readme file. I'm showing over 10,000 tracks. Some are from games so I'll have to weed those out. Also, it let me register under my own name.

$23 for this program that is basically the same thing as my Windows Media Player and it will play the songs, give me visualizations and burn a CD for me also is not something I would even begin to consider for this software.. I am not one to complain much about free software.. and I love this site.. but the free software usefulness and quality has gotten so low as of the last two or three months, that I delete most things as soon as I install them.
This use to not be the case at all with this site.. where has all the excellent software gone to folks?

Thanks anyway for the offer..

Unless I'm missing something, this see, this is the shareware version and is limited to 100 tracks. Which for most of us is pretty useless. There is obvious registration key, so I can't get the full version.

AllMySongs Database is a VB [Visual Basic] app using Microsoft Jet [Wikipedia: http://goo.gl/C5SjR ] as the database engine. It doesn't have a way to import a database from another app you already use, & it doesn't have some of the features of alternatives like MediaMonkey, but it's easy to use & to many people simpler is better -- look at the growing number of Chrome users, with many feeling the browser's simplicity is it's main advantage. I'd expect some folks to feel the same way about AllMySongs Database.

Installation isn't terrible, but if you want your system back exactly as it was after removing AllMySongs Database, you'll need to set a Restore Point in Vista/7, or preferably perform a backup & then restore it. Setup includes at least 19 VB runtime & related files, maybe more [UniExtact will not fully expand the files in Setup.exe so I can't say for sure], that may or may not be installed to Windows system folder, depending on what you have already. Ideally this shouldn't cause any problems, but installing most any VB app can break VB apps you already have installed if they need a different version of one or more of those files [FWIW if you remember win98 you probably also remember DLL H***, where setup files adding the wrong file versions could become a nightmare -- there's even a Wikipedia entry on it http://goo.gl/kpF0o ]. Because the setup routine doesn't know what you have installed (& if so, where), the added VB files remain after uninstalling AllMySongs Database -- IOW if installation breaks some other VB app, removing today's GOTD will not fix it. That said, if you don't have any problems but just want to uninstall AllMySongs Database, the files added to the system folder are very small, so it's most likely not worth your time & trouble finding/deleting them [assuming they're no longer needed].

Besides those VB related files, installing AllMySongs Database adds a setup log file to the Windows folder, along with a uninstall.exe file in a new AllMySongs Database folder. The program's folder & the image file 1.bmp are added to the drive root [C:\] -- old fashioned perhaps, & definitely frowned on, but not the end of the world. The AllMySongs Database program folder holds 63 files, 10 folders, & takes up ~7.5 MB. I recorded 1689 new registry entries in the XP Mode VM, but as those are most all caused by the new VB-related files, mileage will vary depending on what's already there, more so I think in 7 where the different versions of .NET can get involved with VB. Running uninstall removed 36 registry entries, left all the files & 1 folder that had been added to Windows & Windows system folder, left the 1.bmp file, removed the Start Menu & desktop shortcuts, & removed most but not all of the files in the program's folder. Note that the Fotis site talks about running as admin on their troubleshooting page.

Installed fine on XP SP3 32b
Clicked Add, chose C: and hit 'Add folder'
All music files on the entire C drive were found and added.
Did the same with other drives, no probs.
It adds video files too (wmv, avi and others)
will see how the rest of the program works later.

I decided to try this programs as what came with my computer is lacking and organization is needed. Two issues that I found, program does not come with a Key even though disclaimer talks of Key. Second three of the icons do not state what they are used for and probably not provided or included with download. There are few comments today and are sadly missed. Hopefully I am wrong about the icons and without a key code, this program will need to have a back-up on this program done, which is something that is often forgotten about until computer goes down and programs lost.

@ 8 Simply you cannot import your database into AmsDb that kinda rules out you being stupid. Stay with collectorz and avoid being lured into a software with limitations like: Purchasing a license of AllMySongs Database authorizes you to install one copy of the software on a single machine. And @ all, indeed Flac files are not supported.

QUOTE: "As far as I can tell AMSD won’t scan the NAS without mapping it to a drive letter"

This is not true either. I do have my music on a FreeNas server and it is on a mapped drive. So far, no dice. I can't see the drive when I try to add it. I tried both a network drive and a network folder and I still can't get them to add to the database. So I guess network support is out. As for the OGG support in Settings it does list that as a type but that does not mean anything I know.

I fail to see what this program does that a decent music player like Media Monkey does not do. Media Monkey can also scan an entire hard drive, catalog all the music you have on it, edit tags, then find any song by using various conditions, etc. And Media Monkey can download lyrics, album covers and what-not from the internet too.

Looks like a lot of effort to reinvent the wheel . . .

Maybe this will be useful if you have all your music in the form of CD's, and are interested in entering all the CD information into a database of some sort. Not for me in any case.

By the way, I have another piece of software from this publisher called All My Books. Since updates are not included as part of the giveaway, that software has become completely useless because sites like Amazon.com have changed the format in which they respond to queries about books when you provide the ISBN. Because of this, All My Books has lost the ability to collect information about books from the internet. Instead, I have to enter all the information about the book into the database manually. Very tedious to say the least. Another reason to look into a permanently free solution for these types of applications (I now use Calibre for managing my ebooks).

Note that in the registration dialog you can insert your own name and it will register. Also, if you had this program previously, the registration may carry over automatically.

FYI, today's program is version 1.5.

Is there any way to add a mapped drive from NAS? I have been unable to find a way to do this. I'm sure that there must be a lot of people who keep music on a networked drive or network attached storage. Is this an oversight or omission in this version? Please let me know what you think?

Other than that this seems to be a handy app for most people who like to keep music organised. Unfortunately my music is on a NAS and I'm unable to test as I would like.

Thanks GAOTD and FOTIS for the opportunity to try this program and GAOD for the daily freebies for evaluation.

I was also hoping this programme might have an import function as the other half has a massive database of every piece of music - stored on CD, cassette, minidisc and LP - that he has. (The programme he currently uses won't run beyond Win98 and the developer apparently abandoned it; there is no upgrade available.) It seems not so it probably won't be a keeper for us.

I have been using MediaMonkey for media management for YEARS. Their free version is quite powerful in media management and I have used it as a companion to the Zune software and iTunes. It will even rip CDs.

I see a few extra data manipulation features in AMSD but I'll stick with the monkey for now. http://www.mediamonkey.com

Can add individual files but crashes when I add a folder. That and the fact that winamp, wmp, and a bunch of other players have database capabilities built-in (media monkey being my current choice) makes this thing uh, not a good choice for me.

Can't imagine *who* it might be a good choice for, in fact.

Basically it is a Media Manager!!!!!!

Installed and registered fine on Win 7 x64.
Yes, it has good options to manage media files, but as mentioned by some users that it doesn't support some formats

Overall its not bad, but for $23 as there are many Free Alternatives are available out there.

Some better free alternatives and some support Plugins/Extensions:

1. Media Monkey : With Plugins/Extensions support. Presently I'm using it and it also give you option to use Winamp as your player

2: Jaangle is another very good Media Manager with lots of options to customization.

There are others like Song Bird , Winamp which have a good Media Library .

I've been using collectorz for many years, but thought I would download this on to a new computer I have here and to do a comparison.

It installed fine, and I know I haven't had much time to really get to grips with the program, so it may be me just being stupid, but I cannot find a way to import an existing database (ie create an 'export' file in collectorz, and then import it into AllMySongs). Having spent years creating my collectorz database - which incorporates 80,000+ tracks; a large proportion of which are on CDs - if I cannot import the data, then this program is no use.

Shame really, because this looks a tidy enough little program, so I'm hoping someone will tell me that I'm being stupid and I'm just too used to collectorz).

I will have to say hats off to the developers and GOTD for this very powerful and easy to use program.
Installed without a problem on a win7 64 system. Simple copy and paste to register it.

The test I gave it was as follows: Let it run on a 2 tb drive that has a mix of sounds, vinyl (33, 45 78), 4 track, 8 track and reel to reel recordings. Not much in the way of encoding to help it along. Found a little over 12k files, from 0.00 sec to 2:27.20 hrs long, with sizes from 350b on up.

It without fail, found every song by name that had one, found by file name, size, bit rate or any other way that I wanted to group the sound/songs. Also has every option to name, comment, describe your sound/songs with along with getting info from the net about them.

I was able to easily set up the following data bases with it, sounds/songs from 0.00 to 1.23 to <90.00 long, and above. When the program did not have a length of recording, could sort by files sizes.

I am sure someone will say it should have "skins" or able to adjust recordings someway, but that is not what this program is meant to do. I do have several programs that allow me to do that, but this program is well worth their asking price in what it does as a very good database program, with many options and without all the pizazz.

No problem installing and registering on XP, and was able to add songs by clicking on them one at a time, but keeps freezing up when I try to add a folder. It also seems I cant add multiple files using shift click - so every file must be clicked to select the list.

It also fails to find songs in sub-folders, despite having this option checked.

In summery I see little use for this software, as I have to find and add each song individually - a search for *.mp3 using "Everything" seems easier and takes about 1 second.

I store my media in .OGG files on a NAS share. As far as I can tell AMSD won't scan the NAS without mapping it to a drive letter, won't pick up .OGG files on a folder/sub-folder scan, and won't read the tags from .OGG files.

After five minutes of disappointment I uninstalled it.
