"Easy To Install"

January 30, 2010  |  By donnahallen

 |  Version: CD Assistant 3.7

Pros

Easy to understand & download

Cons

After loading 25 cd's it started displaying the same cd name and artist for every single cd.

Summary

I have unintsalled it until this gets fixed. More or less it just wasted my time

"Do not download!!!!!!"

December 23, 2009  |  By jrocker07

 |  Version: CD Assistant 3.7

Pros

Simple program, easy to learn, but not praise worthy.

Cons

After adding 9 CDs, I edited one cd and from then on every time I loaded CD Asst. it froze my computor. Tried to find out what to do to clear this problem, but there is no assistance available under the "help" section. Sooo, I deleted this program .

Summary



Updated on May 10, 2010

good program except there was no way to print all the info i copied, no sense in having a program that won`t print up on paper.

"Great and easy program!"

July 28, 2009  |  By monac3

 |  Version: CD Assistant 3.7

Pros

This program does everything for you. All you do is put your cd in the drive; and , the program automatically looks up the information for you through the CDDB Wizard. You confirm the information and add it to your system.

Cons

Nothing so far.

Summary

This is an excellent choice to keep track of a cd inventory!

"Could be great, but wasn't as simple as it could be"

August 27, 2008  |  By jojoquacks

 |  Version: CD Assistant 3.7

Pros

It is very easy to add discs ( just a few mouse clicks), and the process is very fast. CD info is quite accurate - it found quite a few of my more obscure discs, and usually differentiated between "disc 1" and "disc 2" (etc) of multi-disc albums.

Cons

Buttons & tabs were not very intuitive for me; various redundant buttons; newly added discs would not always show up immediately (I had to switch to a different tab/sort to find them). Clicking "help" was useless - the file was too minimal.

Summary

This could have been a fantastic, simple freeware program; I've compared it to 3 trial versions of paid software and found it to be simpler and quicker to add discs, as well as providing more accurate CD info & finding quite a few discs not found by the paid programs. Unfortunately, there were a few glitches, and the non-intuitive sort tabs & buttons had me more frustrated than pleased.

Based on this freeware, I would be highly unlikely to purchase MusiFind Pro (the "premier," paid product from the same publisher, Author Direct) for $39. A free trial version of it is available, but after using this freeware for about a week I had no interest in trying any other Author Direct products for a while!

"Absolute Crap"

August 13, 2008  |  By obrienpc

 |  Version: CD Assistant 3.7

Pros

It uninstalls well

Cons

First, it could not detect my DVD drive, interesting. I got past that, and it did detect the audio media, but would not display any track information. Then, I was informed that I need to register with CDDB in order to pull the media data, but there is no option to do this.

Finally, just to be pissy, I think their website sucks too!

"Fairly useful but serious shortcomings in data handling"

February 13, 2008  |  By pauljj32

 |  Version: CD Assistant 3.7

Pros

Does what it says

Cons

Very difficult to extract the data for use in other applications like database or labels. Brings down everything from Gracenote which is held in a *.log file temporarily but then drops half of the data when entered into main *.db file. Clunky for Classical music use.
