    Hi all, could use some fellow photog input here.

    I am wondering if ya'all might be able to recommend something to use for making a database of DVD's of images that I have already archived to disk. I am in need of being able to look up and find what folder of images is on what CD quickly. Ideally, something where I could just throw a DVD in the machine that is already archived, would read it, and then allow me to save it to a collection.
    Thoughts? Ideas?
    Thank you all
    --John

    Not a problem, I have a 500G external right here. I am moving all my images to it as soon as they are burned :)

    get a second 500 GB drive .. best of a different drive manufacturer.

    then you have your archive ... and your backup of the archive

    DVDs? well if you like shiny silver things which are a pain to burn (500 GB? *shivers*)
