CD/DVD cataloging program called NeoFinder (for Macs) or abeMeda (for Windows). Written by a developer from Langenhahn, Germany, this software is the simplest and cheapest digital asset management program on the market. The cost is $39.99 which is quite inexpensive for something this comprehensive and useful. Users are given the opportunity to download a fully functional version and use it in demo mode: www.cdfinder.de - Mac version; www.cdwinder.de - PC version.
It works easily and flawlessly by letting the user start the program, set some simple variables, insert a CD/DVD that you'd like to scan and catalog and ejects it to move on to another. After you finish cataloging your media, the database is then searchable, making this truly a great cataloging and search program.
