If you have a Mac, DVDpedia is a great desktop program that syncs with their iPhone app, Pocketpedia. I believe Pocketpedia can run as a standalone, but I wouldn't want to enter a collection of any size on it, alone.

I actually did enter my collection (~500 titles). It wasn't so bad when spreading the work over a week or two. Unfortunately, I had to restore my iPod not long after and for whatever reason the backup didn't take. I put PocketPedia back on the iPod intending to do the entry again but ultimately decided it wasn't worth the work unless I could be sure a backup would work (I run Windows so DVDpedia's not an option). I've since deleted the app from my iPod, but I keep it in iTunes so that I keep the updated version. Maybe eventually...

My husband (who has 2000+ titles) just saw this thread and made a worrying sound that suggested he was intrigued. Sounds like another project to drive me crazy! :)

He has a sort of self-built list so it will have to better that one before any money changes hands... we shall see!

I agree with them, Pocketpedia is the best for organizing your media collection.
