Import PVD database
« on: June 11, 2010, 07:32:46 am »
Hi Nostra,

Small feature request (maybe)  ;)
Would it be possible to import (merge) two pvd databases? (and possible export)

Now the price of Harddrives is comparable to DVDs - I have decided to store my collection on Hard drive.
I am still deciding how I am going to store it.

eg Drives per Genre, All movies in one directory, subdirectories per Genere etc etc.
( I am interested in knowing how others store their media on Hard drives and how they then catalog them in PVD).

I would be creating separate databases to test functionality. I would like to be able to import best version into my main database at the end.

The ability to import a database would also be useful for adding new collections.
eg have 50 or so movies, import into a new database, fix anything that needs fixing and when happy with results merge into exisiting database.

 :)Thanks for a great program:)

With me, the media database
Code: [Select]
( I am interested in knowing how others store their media on Hard drives and how they then
catalog them in PVD).
to an external hard disk arranged by category.
Example:
    Action
    Comedy
    Western
and
     Rest.
.

In PVD, I have the custom section done custom field Movie Categories and manually confirmed one of the categories of films that I have an external disk.
Arrangements may also be in the File Information.
