Ended up deleting the DVD profile I created, re-created it from scratch. Copied cast/crew from the Parent, entered as much info as I could find on the cover (information on this particular release is darned-near impossible to find online, Walmart doesn't even list it at their website), copied covers from the Parent (currently, back is the same as front.  I left my packaging intact, just cut a hole to slide the case out, hopefully someone else can contribute proper cover scans).  Attached the finished product as Child.  Can't scan the disc ID of the Parent, I don't have a blu-ray player in my computer (no disc IDs exist as of yet for the Parent).  Contributed everything I created, hopefully it passes inspection.

I don't have a problem with creating the child profile by inserting the disc and choosing by Disc ID, then adding to the parent's Box Set Contents, but it's everything that comes after that I don't have enough time for right now, unless there's a fast easy way to copy over all the cast/crew, etc., from the parent.

Damn, I was hoping to avoid having to do all that, I may have to postpone this...

I purchased Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital, Collectible Packaging with 6 Interchangeable Covers) from Walmart, there is a Parent Profile in the database but no child profile for the DVD.  There is no DVD profile in the database for this movie.  I have created a DVD profile (specifically for this Star Wars edition) by using an existing blu-ray profile then editing all necessary areas including deleting the existing disc IDs, importing the disc ID of the DVD, and eliminating the existing UPC in exchange for the DVD disc ID.  I'd like to now import the resulting DVD profile, as a child, into the box set contents of the parent, but the DVD does not show up in the list of (Parent) Box Set Contents to choose from.  Is there something else I need to do?

I'm hoping someone else who is certain will stop in and either confirm that or provide other information.  "Syncing" this tablet with anything has eluded me thus far, making a physical connection seems like it would be so much simpler, provided the DVD Profiler app is anywhere near as easy to use as the desktop DVDP.

What do you think about storing the backup on a permanently installed memory card (by permanently, I mean it stays in the tablet unless I need to download/upload pics to it from my computer, then it gets reinserted immediately).  Feasible?

Wow, nobody uses DVD Profiler for Android on a tablet here???

Thinking of buying DVD Profiler for Android, wanted to ask how simple it will be to update the database once it's installed on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablet using a USB cable, connecting between the tablet and my main computer where DVD Profiler is installed, and updating the db using my existing PC backup.  Also, can I maintain the DVDP backup on the tablet SD card?  Don't want to consume that much space on the tablet drive...

Merry Christmas All!  Just realized I've been a Profiler for 7½ years...

I've just submitted a preliminary contribution for the DVD version of Game of Thrones: S7 (883929598564), purchased from Target.  I hope one hasn't already been submitted and this one is redundant (I didn't see any pending contributions for GoT).  If so, please disregard my contribution.  If not, mine will be something to build upon.

I'd forgotten about this, just checked for updates, my CPU usage never went above 50% while checking, even during the 2 "not responding" instances, then went back down to 9-13% while it scanned my collection before announcing there were no updates.

Well, I learned something new today:  That when an update disappears from Pending Updates, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's available for DVD Profiler profile updates.  I checked again this morning, and the full update was there, which begs the question:  What was that, that I downloaded last night?

Another bit of oddness:  I'd been keeping an eye on the new update which would've added the disc info, cast & crew, etc.  Checked the Pending Updates and discovered it was no longer there, so I brought up DVD Profiler, checked for updates, found the Rawhead Rex update, but there was nothing I didn't already have.  No cast/crew, no disc info, nothing I didn't already have.  I tried downloading the update anyway, but my cast/crew and disc info is still devoid of any information.  I tried refreshing the profile from the Online menu option, but nothing showed up.

I wonder what happened to the rest of the update?

Nevermind.  It must've been a delayed update or something, I just got it.  Weird thing is, I've been checking for updates, even after it disappeared from Pending Updates, and nothing.  I have it now.  Maybe I can help out a little with some further updates.

I never got the update, it never showed up as an update to my Rawhead Rex profile, it just disappeared from All Pending Updates.  So what happened to it?

Apparently the profile was declined.  I wish he'd edit and resubmit.

If it does get declined, just untick Overview and re-submit.  I like your cover images...

I'll have to check my CPU usage next time there's an update, I just tried but there weren't any and DVDP didn't go over 4% while checking.

It seems to me almost as if it has something to do with the online server more than anything having to do with CPU usage, my computer doesn't hang like that in general.  And since this has been going on for at least the last couple of versions of DVD Profiler, it seems as though it's not necessarily an application issue, although I suppose anything is possible.

This has been going on for awhile now, at least the last couple of versions of DVD Profiler, possibly longer.  Whenever I check for profile updates or update my online database, DVD Profiler will slip into "Not Responding" mode for a few seconds, then resume updating.  This usually occurs a couple of times during each updating.  Any ideas what the problem might be?

Like many others here, v4.0 has not presented any problems for me whatsoever.  Just follow recommended upgrade procedures (db repair, backup).  While I care about the release notes, it's certainly not a deal-breaker for me.  I'm happy with DVD Profiler, and happy with this trouble-free update.  Whatever bugs may remain, I'm sure they'll be addressed in good time.

Absolutely, I still recommend DVD Profiler.  I haven't found any better and I tried numerous DVD cataloging software applications before I found DVD Profiler.  Re: v4.0 (build 1762), I haven't had any issues with this new version whatsoever.  Upgrading was problem-free, just make sure you follow recommended upgrade procedures (db repair, backup).  I like that you can select to update whatever you want to, you can lock aspects of each profile so they won't change, you can preview everything and opt out of whatever updates or parts of updates you don't want for your profiles. 

I still have fun with DVD Profiler, tinker with headshots regularly...

Still a time-consuming enterprise which I haven't enough of to justify attempting it.  I've created profiles for many a DVD/BD in DVD Profiler, but my only attempt at creating the cast/crew profiles was a nightmare which I prayed I would awaken from.  While I'll still create profiles for videos not in the database, I'll draw the line at cast/crew and even episode info for the children beyond the basic listing in the Overview.  I'll leave that to much more capable hands than mine.  I just wish someone would take the time to actually do it.

You're welcome!  I just wish someone would create the children for Season 6.  I have all 7 seasons and Season 6 is the only one without her children.  I could scan the discs and tie them to the parent but I don't know how to create the cast/crew listings for the episodes, nor do I have the time it would take to create them from scratch.  I'm surprised nobody has ever taken the time to do that.

Continuum: Season 4 is like that too.  I tied the children to the parent but they're blank and I don't have the time or the knowhow it would take to create the cast/crew listing from scratch...
