We have a lot of CD's laying around and would like to organize them.  What we want is to have the CD's go into an organizer that catalogs them into a database so they can be accessed anywhere on our network.  

Is there anything out there that does that?

Thanks.

You might be better off using something like MagicISO, etc to rip them to a file (there are also other free utils).  Using other free tools like Virtual Cone Drive, you can just mount them and use as needed.  Of course that takes some time investment and available HD space.  Otherwise, there are hardware solutions outh there like:  http://www.dansdata.com/cdlibrary.htm that come with software for inventory...

OK,  Those are good ideas.

I am looking for an organizer the reads the CD's and stores them into a DB for easy access from anywhere on our network.

How many discs are you looking at?  There are CD/DVD servers available as well such as: http://www.primearray.com/products/servstation_cd_dvd_server.php

That is probably a little over kill for us.  We have roughly 200-300 discs to catalog.  

I have been looking, but only finding lower-end devices that don't have the best reviews.

The software is nice to have, but we also need a storage unit, so why not have both.  If anyone has a product they have used that is similar, please share!


Thanks.
