    I am after a good DVD/CD database app for android.
    I have a lot of movies, and they are taking up too much space in my cupboard, so I want to take them out of their cases and put them in a DVD file - but to find them, I need to be able to search the name, and it tell me the disc number...

    Search by category's/genera would be good too...

    Any ideas?

    Warmly, Marty

    I do a lot of work with databases in my real estate business. There's not many good choices for databases in Android and I've searched quite a bit. I'd have to say your best bet would be Memento. It has a good looking interface plus you can build your database in Excel and import it. A lot easier to do that way.

    IMO use Excel + Documents To Go.

    why got locked into some mom & pop developer's closed black box locked proprietary format?

    use Excel which is an open standard which can be opened from virtually any device on any OS on the planet.

    good luck!

    I use a program called collectorz. It's available at collectorz.com. I've been using this program for several years now. They have music, movies, books, dvd's, comics and video games versions. Just received an email from them yesterday stating they will be coming out with an adroid app. The first one scheduled is for movies.
    Check them out and see if it may be what you are looking for.

    Ok, just looking at that now, syncs with google docs too so should be safe...

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Thankyou for that - I might try memento (mentioned above) for the same reason, syncs to googledocs, and seems to be in a plain format - its a valid point though, getting locked into something that someone cant be bothered supporting... eeek!

    I have used their DVD database for windows for quite a few years now, can say that it does the job and does it well when it comes to the database of the DVD's.

    I know this is a slightly different approach but in the spirit of brainstorming, have you considered Springpad? I figure you can scan the barcodes of the DVD to avoid entering in all of the information (and then capture the movie image), then you can tag each DVD according to genre (drama, comedy, etc) and even access it from a laptop if you choose.

    You would need to add in the disc number manually but I figure that's going to happen regardless.

    I have just published a general-purpose Disk Catalog Browser and Search tool to the Android Market.
    It's a free app called CatDroid, and uses a SQLite database for it's catalog data. It could be used to keep track of DVD movie collections, as well as any kind of disk-based media.

    I used to use the Cat Scanner to enter all of my discs! It's been a long time. I'll have to check this out.

    I'm using Delicious Library on my Mac and exporting the data to excel which I upload to Google Docs. Inefficient but effective.
