    DVD Tracker charging now!

    I was amazed to find that now that I have entered my first 200 DVDs at DVD Tracker, they decide to start charging. I was about 50 DVDs behind on entry. Guess that saved me the trouble! lol.

    I know, it's just 10 bucks a year, but if they were going to charge, they should have charged from the outset. not 1-2 years after the fact.

    Personally, I refuse to pay for the service. Of course, it does cost money to store data, and perhaps those costs have escalated. I understand it all, but for me, it's just not worth it.

    Hey, Lex, didn't you get an email in August/September from DVD Tracker saying that they will be charging $10 per year, beginning on September 15, 2000?

    BTW, I am using an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of my DVD collection including owned, pre-orders, trades, previously owned, etc.?

        I may have gotten it and just "fluffed" over it. Unless I have a reason to read newsletters, many times, they just doesn't get read.

        Ok, John, I will check that out!

        I was a little miffed at DVD Tracker anyway. I sent them an email trying to establish a partner type relationship with them, and they didn't even show me the courtesy of a reply. To me, that's just not nice when someone does you that way. This isn't the first time, and I am sure it won't be the last.

        But if someone asks me something, they will get the courtesy of a reply, even if I can't or won't help them.

          I agree. It doesn't take much to be polite. Well, if you go to www.dvdprofiler.com you will find a true user friendly program that has a pay and a free setup. The difference between the pay vs free is: The payed application gives you higher rez cover art and the ability to turn off the advertisements.

          When I started using them I did the free one but, for what they offer I think I am going to support them and upgrade. The program is that good!

            Thanks for the info on DVD Profiler...that's the first I had heard of them. I just downloaded it. It only took me 20 minutes to enter my 150 DVDs using their UPC feature.

            The sorting power of DVD Profiler is fantastic. It certainly blows DVD Tracker (and Excel) out of the water!

                I sent DVD Profiler a message about developing an association with htguide. But so far, no word.

                I will be downloading the software soon. I suppose the big disadvantage for some would be, is your list available to others? I haven't researched it enough to know yet.
