To work with Media Catalog Studio all you need is to have music and video files on your computer. Files can be added to the database in the following way:
1. Open the window with the list of drives connected to your computer. To do it click button in main toolbar.
2. In the new window select disks containing media files. Choose required formats and click button "Scan Disks for Media":
3. For each selected drive a separate window will be opened where you can select the location of the device, enter its description and date. This information will be displayed next time you choose the files – Media Catalog Studio will help to keep your collection under control. If you are sure there is no problem with the drive location you can uncheck option "Show this window next time":
When adding an audio disk to the database Media Catalog Studio can automatically fill in basic (general) fields querying CDDB server in the Internet. By default querying the server starts automatically. If required you can select the "manual request" in the "Settings" window.
Note: You can add media files from selected folder. Just click button "Scan folder for Media" and select folder.

With my media library growing everyday I was looking for a way to organize it all. I found Media Catalog and plan to stick with it. This program searches all available media devices/drives to locate any type of digital type media. Once you install this program and search for media it immediately creates a very detailed catalog of your media. Media Catalog then takes that information and creates a great deal of options for you, such as, searching your music media by Artist or by year. This program is pretty good to have handy.Derek
