Are you a collector of DVDs or Laser Discs and have you wanted to create an inventory of your collection? Have you wanted to build an inventory without the need to enter a lot of data? If your answer is yes, then DVD-Register may be the software solution for you. Using the catalog number, the universal produce code (UPC), or the DVD title, you can select from the company's reference database of all of the discs (with over 23,800 DVDs and 16,800 Laser Discs issued in the United States from 1979-2002) and then move the matching records to a database of your discs. Because you don't have to enter the data about the titles yourself, large collections can be cataloged with much less time and effort. Once you have cataloged your collection, you can print standard reports or create your own custom formatted reports. You can use compact lists to avoid buying duplicates and comprehensive reports to list the movies available in your home theatre. Other features include a list of publishers and studios with mailing addresses; context sensitive help; 20 standard reports to list and summarize disc collections; custom report formats; user defined fields for special data attributes such as for custom filing systems; and flexible searching, filtering, and sorting of records for both displays and reports. The program is compatible with Windows '95, Windows '98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows Me, Windows XP.
