Smart CD Catalog is software designed for organizing and managing CDs, DVDs, and other digital media collections. It will allow you to catalog your disks and create an ordered CD/DVD database. It is much more comfortable to use Smart CD Catalog than keep a list of disks on paper, in text files, or in Excel. Just add a disk to Smart CD Catalog once and you can view its contents, even if the disk is lying on a shelf or is being borrowed by a friend of yours.

All types of media are supported: CDs and DVDs, hard disks, floppy disks, mounted network disks, USB drives, and RAM disks. You can also add separate folders to the catalog. You can view the list of files on any disk and their properties in the same way you can do it in Windows Explorer. Plus, you can add your comment to any disk, folder or file.

Main features:

  • Comfortable, pleasant and intuitive graphical user interface;
  • Minimize to tray;
  • Creating disk categories;
  • Creating disk locations;
  • Maintaining the list of borrowers;
  • Storing the history of loans;
  • Viewing the list of disks separately for each type or all types together;
  • Adding disks of any type supported by your computer;
  • Autoscanning of inserted CDs;
  • Adding folders to the catalog;
  • Adding a comment for any disk, folder or file;
  • Viewing detailed information about each disk, folder or file;
  • Displaying the size of any folder;
  • Sorting files, folders and disks by any parameter;
  • Detailed statistics for disks, folders and files;
  • Powerful search tools;
  • Flexible reports (HTML and CSV);
  • Password-protected access;

So glad I missed this. I have the last free copy of MediaMan that scans your CD barcode or you can type it in. Does CD and DVD as well, but I have Ant Movies for my DVD collection.

MediaMan: http://www.freeware-guide.com/month/072005.html


Ant Movie: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/File-CD-DVD-Catalog/Ant-Movie-Catalog-updated.shtml

Both programs are FREE.

Get real.
FYI Microsoft didn't start with DOS (Disk Operating System), they started with MS-DOS. Big difference. Next you'll be saying that Bill Gates made the first computer. By the way, I hope you didn't mean to imply that MS-DOS was a great idea.

That the programs by Abaiko aren't worth using is neither here nor there because I didn't say that. I state to you that they aren't worth buying. Again, a big difference. They aren't worth buying because there are so many variations of them around that are not only much cheaper but in most cases even for free. That's not counting the fact that some already come included with your Windows OS/MS office install

Where's your review about the software and or the publisher?

#52
English not being my first language I make many a fault against spelling and grammar but at least I'm understandable.

A couple of small tips: using a verb helps, using the proper tense of the verb helps, using the right verb helps. Taking a deep breath to collect your thoughts help.

All of Abaiko's software is hugely overpriced. That there are lots of others that overprice their software doesn't make a difference. If it's BS software then it's worth money. If you truly think that it is wonderful software then I await to see you and others like you to donate a couple of thousand to them so they can continue their efforts.

BTW, the software isn't truly FREE. If it was free then you and I could re-install it whenever we wanted. It's not my fault you don't understand the concept of this site being that you can test it out in exchange for feedback.

Where's your review about the software and or the publisher?

its good to see any and all developers. So what if they dont have programs you think are worth using. everyone has to start somewhere. Just because you dont think something is valuable dosnt mean its not. great ideas dont come from the masses.
microsoft started with dos.
keep up the good work developers. years from now there will be stories-"we got started thanks to giveawayoftheday.com". today our software is the most used/liked/ etc.

#24 - I had the same problem as #18 - It recognized my CD as an audio CD but wanted to put it in "others", rather than music. Then it did not find any other information than the number of tracks. Everything would have to be manually entered.

This is useless as is. I don't have the time to manually enter all this information. I'll keep my Excel spreadsheet for CDs, DVD, VHS, Cassettes, LPs & 45s (Yes, I still have a lot of old 45s in a Disc-O-Case from the time I was a kid!

I will be uninstalling it momentarily. It was worth a shot but not worth the trouble from here. I hope something more usable for me comes along eventually.

I have 100's of dvd's . They are in an excell spreadsheet
with the movie name and then a description of the movie.
I see no way to get this list into this program
Plus will it allow me to create 5 lines to tell me what the movie is about?
Not sure.
I tried it and for me excel is better

I agree that SearchMyDisks has more potential than this for photographers, it just needs batch adding of tags/keywords.

I checked out Thumbs Plus tonight too. That was almost there too, but failed to copy a gallery whose images where from more than one DVD. Why do these programs insist that everything is online?

This is not exactly what I expected.
I expected software that was useful for albums and movies, with Title, Author (or Band Name), Year fields, etc...

#13 was right on the money with Libra.
This seems to be just what I expected.

This seems to be good for cataloging data.
But #17's suggestion of Cathy seems better for that purpose.

For all the people who have been asking about thumbnail photo organizing software, have you tried Thumbs Plus? A long time ago when I was really into photography, I used it and it seemed pretty slick. I just went to their web site (cerious.com) and it looks like they have really updated it. If you've got a big image collection, it may be just the ticket.

I dont know what everyone is saying about being just a 30 trial. Just remember to run the file "Activate.exe", after you install it and it will be good to go. I don't know if you can install after a reformat or reinstall of Windows, but if you have a CD-RW/DVD+-R Burner, you should know how to back up and restore your HD's.

As far as the software:

No problems at all running on my PIII AMD 950MHz with 512MB of memory. \:D/

Lacks the ability to catigorize single files into catigories, Games/Progs/Text/Other/Photos/RAR/ZIP/ISO ect. (Just Catigorizes the whole Disk/CD/DVD only):(

Interface may just be a little confusing for most newbees.

On a scale 1-10, I give it a 8!
Nice Job, verry usefull, will save you plenty of time searching for that cd you put that ISO file on 3 years ago. Now only if I could keep my CD's in order... LOL :-/

i like what it has so far, especially the pictures part. its easy to use and it doesnt relly need much more then the mouse to use it =). so all in all its pretty great. no errors, no nasty surprises. it does what it said itd do and more. i dont know if i will be able to catalog everything i have, but if i do, it will be with this for sure.

one thing id like to see as an offer though is phrase express, it has a free version but it keeps nagging me to buy sooo... thanks giveaway of the day!

#22 Ryle,

Excellent, to the point and funny. Well done. Very refreshing to see someone that understands the concept of Giveaway as well as actually look at a programs faults as well as virtues, if any.

# 36 Kharn,

Grow up. If you think that was 'extremely' sarcastic, negative and rude then you have led a very sheltered life. Everything Ryle said was true.

Mentioned each and every detail as a 'feature' is as silly as those car adverts where they mention that the car comes with a rearview mirror?


About the program :
On the site they even mention some more stuff that anyone should look at with some puzzlement. For instance what about the line

"You can add multiple CDs and DVDs simultaneously and with the utmost ease: all you have to do is to change disks and click Insert CD/DVD, the program itself will do all the other operations, such as detecting the inserted disk, scanning it, and ejecting the disk."

1) How one would be able to add 'simultaneously' multiple CD's and DVD's while keeping in mind that most people only have one CD/DVD read/write drive is frankly beyond me
2) What good would the program be if it wasn't able to detect and scan the disk?
3) So what if it will eject the disk. Does it really take that much effort to activate the eject considering that you have to move your hand in that general direction anyways to replace disks?

In short, don't bother.
As for a company paying 39.95USD per license for this..... I don't know what the guys at Abaiko Software are smoking but I don't think it's legal.

About Abaiko Software. I took a look at the other programs they offer. Hold on to your hats, Smart CD Catalog is the best of them all.
The other fabulous programs are
-Advanced Phonebook : 24.95 personal license or 29.95 for business license
-Abaiko Disk Space Monitor: 19.95 personal license or 29.95 for business license
-Reminder Commander: 24.95 personal license or 39.95 for business license

and...drum roll please...my all time favourite ...
-Advanced Phonebook : 24.95 personal license or 29.95 for business license

So there you have it. A company that publish software which is un-original and for which there are so many good open source and freeware variations that one would have to be of ones rocker to buy it from them.
Can you see yourself stepping to your boss and telling him/her that you advise them to pay 40US per employee for a "reminder program" or 30USD for a program to keep track of phone numbers?

Who is/are Abaiko? I haven't got a clue. They shield themselves and don't give any information what so ever. It's impossible to tell if it's a one man operation or a company of 50. They are so shy that they even guarded against anyone checking up on any of their websites.
I for one would be very uncomfortable to share my credit card info with a company that is so ashamed of it's products that it can't even give information about who they are, where they are, how many they are etc....

Nice program, easy to use. great when you have multiple hard drives full of various media to catalog ...


#22

dude .. of course the developer is going to list all of the things it does, it would be stupid not to .. and saying stuff like

"I would of assumed any high quality piece of software would have that naturally worked etc.." isn't really helpful..

you can never assume with software, because (more often than not) .. something that you assume to be an obvious feature of a program, is simply not there. by listing what the program does so verbosely, there are no surprises that it doesn't do when u download it.

I personally know that in the past I have looked for "auto cataloging software" and the features I would assume should be in them, often aren't ...

not trying to flame bro .. but you were extremely sarcastic and negative with your post. it wasn't criticism, it was outright rude.

Photographers: check out Thumbs Plus by Cerious Software. I have been using it for at least 10 years and it handles lots of file types including .psd! Sorry it is NOT FREE.
http://www.cerious.com/featuresv7.shtml

I will try the new one just to see if can help me keep track of disk contents better. Remember the old "print disk" command in DOS... I would like to keep the contents with each disk and not need sofware to look up contents or browse each one just to see what is on it!

Nice offer, GAOTD. But I've been using Music Collector Pro (http://www.collectorz.com/music/) for years and that meets my needs. It does have a free trial version that allows entry of up to 100 CD's. I don't think there is any time limit on the trial as long as you don't exceed that limit. I went for the Pro version because I have a lot more than 100 CD's (lol).

Nice Audio tools, but I'd prefer using Tunebite, it can help you edit CD info, the most important thing is that you can remove the DRM copy-protected from music and video with it. I always use it to burn iTunes movie to DVDs and watching with my large screen TV, that's awesome. Here is a guide about it

Especially when I do loan them out, which is often. So yes, some of us do lend our cd's/dvd's. Thanks for taking the time out for a good review...

Having trouble with this program, after installation I click on it to run and it starts to configure the Windows DAO, which it does not do, it stops and states:

"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable."

I searched for DAO.MSI, but it's not there. If I cancel it, the program does start up, but I'm not sure why it's needing the dao.msi. Program looks great though!

Comfortable, pleasant and intuitive graphical user interface - Darn I was hoping for a command line interface
Minimize to tray - W00T They took the time to add in a few extra lines of code for me, Now I can have the program running constantly and out of the way because you never know when you need to quickly see if a CD is available for a friend to loan
Creating disk categories - Would hope so, kind of the main idea of this little proggy
Creating disk locations - ""
Maintaining the list of borrowers - Going to ask a moral question here...
How many people (Now be honest) "Borrow" CDs/DVDs to friends?
Storing the history of loans - No need to comment any further on this subject see above
Viewing the list of disks separately for each type or all types together - Think someone was just being creative to add in extra goodies to this wonderful piece of software
Adding disks of any type supported by your computer - Again I think the author is being creative with some statements, as some things should just be expected
Autoscanning of inserted CDs - Sweet another feature I would of assumed any high quality piece of software would have that naturally worked with removable media
Adding folders to the catalog - Creating disk categories, and disk locations... YES! It can make a folder too
Adding a comment for any disk, folder or file - If they would of spent as much time developing a piece of software as they did writing these features... the possibilities
Viewing detailed information about each disk, folder or file - Cool not only can I chk out my collection but I can see what it consist of as well
Displaying the size of any folder - Windows API is a great thing huh?
Sorting files, folders and disks by any parameter - I can do that with out this program.
Detailed statistics for disks, folders and files - I would of thought this was part of "Viewing detailed information about each disk, folder or file" but I guess it is different when its not, so there for it is.
Powerful search tools - Let me guess I can search disk, folders and files?
Flexible reports (HTML and CSV) - Could have worded this one a little different but it is honestly a good try for a "Main Feature"
Password-protected access - Not to many people I know would really want to password protect there "CD collection information" but who knows, perhaps you have "Sounds of birds and bees vol. 6" and you don't want your family to know what you listen to before bed? - But with respect it does offer it so GJ.

Sorry, don't mean to be a thorn in the developers side but criticism is what builds good software and even if it’s not my flavor, if they do read this it is not ment to be 100% negative. If you want to see software for any given price you need to have features that meet and exceed open source and freeware but most of all the host operating system. – I personally don’t see a use for this software so there for I am not going to keep it but for advice to programmers, your software is only as valuable as a person is willing to pay for it. I don’t believe the price tag listed fits, even if it was my flavor.


For everyone that is about to say “But you get it free today so don’t complain”. Eat me, the whole purpose of this site is for programmers and developers to get a free spot in the lime light. Not so you can get some high-end commercial software for free… I would crap my pants if I seen Windows XP or Adobe Photoshop listed here.

Hello, DLed and installed on Windows Vista no problem. Tried the auto disk scanning feature and was extremely disappointed. On an auto cd it imported nothing but the fact that it was an audio cd and the number of tracks. No Cd title and no individual track titles. Everything must be entered manually. I tried a DVD and it picked up the title but did not know it was a video. If the program scanned cds and picked up track and title info it would be useful. As is will probably delete.

Hello All, Download, activation and install went fine (XP-Pro SP-2). Very nice program as I have many music cd's I'd like to catalog. Not sure of the $24.95 price tag, and since this is a 30 day trial program I'm not going to spend too much time entering data that I cannot use after the free trial expires. Will keep searching for another program, but thanks GAOTD...be back tomorrow.

Smart CD Catalog lacks the ability to scan and search zip files. Zip files are often used and have no use for any cataloging software that does not contain this ability.

Of the cataloging programs I've tried CDVista was by far the worst for my use. That's not to say that it wouldn't be adequate for some another use.

A note to developers there are 1000s of photographers out there looking for a decent cataloging program. We have 10,000 of images and 100s of GB of data. In many case we'll have original RAW images (negatives), working copies, web versions, and print versions. Some may do lectures and want to drag out a subset of images for a particular talk. Others will want to do the same to produce a website on some topic. Or you may just want to produce a DVD of family photos to send to the grandparents at xmas. Those images many be spread across several DVDs or on a number of external high capacity hard disks. A decent cataloging program ought to allow us to quickly tag, find and collate those images. Currently there is nothing out there that does the job.

Thanks for the program, but I'm already using freeware CDVista - http://www.gentibus.com/ . I'm not saying that this program isn't better (it has interesting options like loans, passwords), in fact I have no idea, but CDVista suits me.
#7 you can try using InstallRite for this.

This is for # 2 and 8. I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 on a AMD Athlon XP 2400+, 2.00 GHz, 1.00 GB RAM and I have no problem at all. It works fine for me with no error messages.

How is this better than open source ware? If this is free, where is the serial key to use it more than once even after a reformat? If this cost nothing for personal use, can I save it to a cd for reinstall after a reformat? with other full version software which includes a reusable key for one pc, that is possible? this seems like a trial, with sticky terms.
