Data Crow Portable, The Ultimate Cataloger!
"Data Crow doesn't just catalog your movies with IMDB look-ups, organize your MP3s and CDs with discographies, or handle pictures. It handles all three, plus contacts, software, books, and much more..." —Kevin Purdy, (8 Feb 2010 11:00am)
"One major problem with this kind of tool is that it can often take you an age to get started, as you'll have to manually enter so much information. Data Crow does its best to minimise this, though, by importing information directly from the media files themselves (music metadata, say), and can grab further details from online services like,, Softpedia and MusicBrainz." —Mike Williams, (24 Aug 2017)
"Very helpful for my diploma thesis. Data Crow will replace FileMaker as our new art-catalog with about 1800 artworks from about 230 artists. It takes some time to get into all the functions, Data Crow provides. But after a few hours of searching, reading, trying and retrying it works just fine. Also for fully customized modules and data Import on different ways (CSV, SQL-Statements...). Finnaly: Good Job!" —gagaf (a user),
Data Crow is the ultimate media cataloger and media organiser. Data Crow allows you to catalog all your collectables: books, software, games, movies, etc.
