Disk Cataloging - How To Organize and Catalog Your Disks

There are several steps that you need to make in order to organize your disk collection.

Firstly, download and install disk cataloging software. We recommend SearchMyDiscs as an easy solution for this task. With its help, you are able to create a complete database of all your CD and DVD disks. When the need arises to find something on the disks, you simply enter the name of the file or other search parameter, like the name of song or artist, and the disk cataloguer will show exactly what disk contains the desired data. Photographers can watch thumbnails and read EXIF tags when searching photos without inserting disks into computer.

Secondly, your disk storage should be organized in a proper way too. We recomend storing the disks in signed boxes on shelves:

CD wallet and disk storage

Disks without boxes may be stored in CD wallets, which allow storing disks in a very compact form and finding needed disks easily.
