CD Storage Master 2011

CNET Editors' review

CD Storage Master lets users keep track of their CDs, games, movies, and software without having to actually import the content onto their computers. Although it's not the most intuitive program we've ever used, it's fairly easy to use and has some cool extra features.

Getting information into the program is easy, once you figure it out. For an audio CD, we simply inserted the CD, clicked the New button, and a screen opened allowing us to enter the album information. Users can either do this manually or have the program populate the information from CDDB or Amazon. We chose CDDB and the program quickly imported the artist, album name, and track listing. The program was not able to retrieve the program's cover art, but it was simple enough to find the image on the Internet, save it, and then upload it into the program. The program organizes media by type and then by genre, making easy to browse or search. The program's built-in Help file is thorough but not particularly well-written, so you may have to experiment a bit to get the hang of the program.

One of the features we especially liked was the capability for users to track who they loan items out to. A separate database for contacts makes it easy to enter borrower contact information and track down missing CDs. The program also makes it easy to create and print CD labels based on previously entered cover art, which we thought was a nice touch. CD Storage Master has a 30-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program for all users.

    "Exactly what I'm looking for"

    September 22, 2007  |   By Steve The Wire Puller

    Version: CD Storage Master 2011 5.99

    Pros

    Meant for all types MP3s, Audio, Movies and Photos. Does fairly well ? does ZIP, EXIF and others. Does locations, prints covers, handles barcodes, dupe finder, scans disks easily. Good interface, well organized and easy to understand.

    Cons

    Opens to an icon, even when you tell it to open to the main window. Kind of pricey. Couldn?t make it an even version 6.0 (just kidding).

    "amazed with new features"

    April 14, 2006  |   By robl1978

    Version: CD Storage Master 2011 5.93

    Pros

    After 24 hours using this software, I can honestly say that it's the best software product I have ever purchased!

    I've so far logged 350 of approx 700 CDs into it. I am also amazed at the integrated covers generator and search Amazon.com function.

    Good work, hope you could keep it up.

    "Shame it does not work for me"

    March 26, 2006  |   By blake2963

    Version: CD Storage Master 2011 5.81

    Pros

    none - never worked for me

    Cons

    Never worked beyond opening screen display.

    Tried the application on four different PC's (two desktops, 2 Laptops) and all that ever happened was that the application would open and display a 'timer' instead of the mouse pointer.

    On the second PC I tried I noticed that my C: Drive light was continually on, so thinking that the app was scanning for files I left it. After 4 hours I brought up Windows Task Manager to see if the app had 'hung' - not so Task Manager reported that it was running as did 'What's Running'.

    At this point I did a google and found other servers to download from (just in case the file was somehow corrupt). Installed onto the Laptops and found the same problem.

    Shame really as this app looked to be exactly what I required.

    "The best I have been able to find"

    January 1, 2006  |   By dover75

    Version: CD Storage Master 2011 5.73

    Pros

    I have tried many cd catalog programs over the years and this one is by far the easiest I have come across. I was able to catalog discs detail information in no time. I was never able to catalog metadata that with other programs.

    "A featured and completed cd catalog software"

    December 1, 2005  |   By Jack_Lee

    Version: CD Storage Master 2011 5.71

    Pros

    CD Storage Master is a featured software, it can catalog detail information of files. The CD covers help us to create the CD cover.

    Cons

    I manage my over 300 CDs and DVDs with CD Storage Master. It is the best CD catalog program, I've compared several programs of same type, and CD Storage Master is very complete.
