    I did a search for this and didn't see much in the way of hits, especially anything that is new.

    For some odd reason when I was moving my mp3s over to my Mac from my old PC hard drive I thought everything was fine. Only until I was in the car looking for a song did I realize albums were missing! I was hoping to find a recommended application that will not only let you record what albums you have, but also sync with iTunes and identify the gaps.

    A quick search yielded two solutions:

    Collectorz Music Application - http://www.collectorz.com/music/
    CDPedia - http://www.bruji.com/cdpedia/

    I'm not sure that the Collectorz solution allows identification of CDs not in iTunes, but perhaps I missed something.

    Does anybody have feedback on either of these? Others that I may have missed?

    both those are for physical CDs and really won't catalog your iTunes.
    The first one also looks to be PC only.

    It seems like you had a issues with transferring the files. besides for finding what songs are on the computer I don't see any real use for this situation, and that can be done in iTunes.

    One of the functions I want is the ability for the software to tell me what CDs that I own and are also not in iTunes. I don't want the software, nor would I have a use, for it to catalog what files/albums that I purchased in the digital format.

    Also, did I miss something? I swore the first link explicitly said Mac OS X.

    Ok, sorry I was a little confuzzled. cdpedia seem then like the right fit. One of the features I saw was it automatically scanning iTunes and placing a blue mark by any CD that was in your iTunes library.
