    Default Does Anyone Know Of A Free Program To Organize CD Collection

    Hey All,

    As I have 1000+ CD's - I would like to organize them and have a record of all of them for easy access. But I want a program that can list the CD's in whatever order you choose. I would like the CD's to be listed in the order that I have them stored in my CD storage drawers. I am one of those freaks that plays CD's in order.

    I know that I could just use Word for example and write them all down in order, but I would prefer using a convenient program to organzize, manage and store information in terms of songs and other album information. I don't download songs, use Itunes or any other service. I just want to catalog my CD's - the easier way and put them in any order I want.

    I have heard of programs, where you can just pop the CD in your computer and it will automatically put them in a organized list with song titles, writing credits and other album info that the program downloads from the Internet. I just figured if anyone is using such programs - it's the people here.

    I would greatly appreciate any recommendations.

    Thanks!

    I use MusicMatch Jukebox. You can sort by artist, album title, song title, genre, etc. Works great. Here is the link to download it.

    Microsift Access is perfect for the anal music collector.

    You can customize your listing anyway you want. You can also list each album w/album cover and song list, and if you are really anal you can put the lyrics to each song too. You can also list your artists w/bio and picks and link them back to your collection.

    When they taught me this program the teacher actually had done this for a recycled record store, putting 10,000 albums into the database.

    Access is expensive and a big program but if you are serius it can't be beat.

    Axxman,

    I have Microsoft Access - as part of my Office 2000 package, but have never used it. Plus if possible, I don't actually want to type out 1000+ CD's. If possible, I would like to use a program that can store the information as I place the CD in the disc drive of my computer. Does Access do this?

    Nope. Then again I've never put a straight music CD in my computer either.

    The program I listed is free. Here is a sample of what it looks like.

    This program does all this too. Not sure about the lyrics part, but might be there too.

    He doesn't want a jukebox program, though. He wants an organizational tool. That's more akin to a library-management program than a jukebox. Speaking of which, there are probably a handful of really good collector's programs that could handle a job like this, if creating a database is a bit daunting.

    It is an organizational tool. That is why I use it. If it just played music I wouldn't be using it myself.

    Copied this from their website.

    Musicmatch Jukebox 10 is the most powerful way to find and organize your music, giving you ultimate control of your music experience. With a whole new range of library, playlist, and portable device controls, Musicmatch Jukebox is more powerful and easier to use than ever before.

    By organize, I mean keep track of where the CD physically is. That might be which shelf, which box, who you've loaned it to, etc. A good database would let you put in all sorts of arcane info that a collector might value. Think of engineer, recording method, producer, the studio, and so on.

    Oh ok. That's way too technical for my needs, but see where some people would like and need a database of that type.

    In some ways having the ability to sort by some of that would be interesting. I've got a library program that keeps track of locations on books/CDs/games/etc, but I haven't bothered to get most of my stuff into it. It uses a camera to scan the bar code off the package, then downloads all the info about the product. Kinda cool, but I'm lazy. Every time I can't recall who I loaned something to, I think of it.
