It's allready 2 weeks ago since I did my last update/upload of my collection but didn't have time so far to ask if this is kind of a "common" problem or if there are any known reasons for it.

I am quite sure that the size of my collection might have affected some problems, but the result is disappointing, too. When I uploaded the collection the last time (in October 2021) I might have had between 500 - 1000 DVDs less and it worked within 2 - 3 hours. This time it took at least twice as much for profiler just to scan my collection. And then the uploaded itself took another 4 - 5 hours. When it was nearly finished, a message popped up (I think to remember kind of "sever problems"). So I restarted and was happy that it worked quite fast this time. But when it was finished.... disappointment.

If you take a look on my collection online (http://www.invelos.com/dvdcollection.aspx/Magmadrag), lots of entries even don't have titles. The title-field is empty and on the collection number no click is possible.

So before I start to waste another load of hours with no improved result: Do I need to open a ticket or is my collection too big?

Technical reasons on my side I exclude as I got a gigabit line and am used to have a very good up-/download-speed.

Uploading does NOT re-upload everything. It checks your local changes and then uploads the necessary changes. If you're seeing such long upload times, that's not normal. Did you do anything which might affect all profiles for some reason?

Uploading my database (~11000 profiles) only takes a couple of minutes at most, and only seconds if I re-upload immediately after uploading, or maybe after a single profile change.

I didn't do anything else than the upload. And - as mentioned before - as only about 1000 profiles more were added since the last upload (no about 23.000) I didn't know what else to do. That's why I started this thread.

And if the upload only does the changes, why are so many title fields empty now in my online collection? I should mention: Before I upload, I do a database repair first to avoid/exclude problems caused by any "problems" in the database.

But "only minutes" I never head

Which of the four steps in the upload dialog takes so long? 1000 new profiles is of course a lot. Maybe you just need to upload more often Most of us I think do it after basically every purchase.

Support tickets haven't been read and/or answered in years, unfortunately. Other than that, it does indeed seem to me that your collection is getting too big too handle, either for DVD Profiler or for your computer - or both.

about 23.000

That's just too many, indeed.  Even if you manage to watch one every single day of your life, it'll take you 63 years to get through them all. Assuming you don't buy any new ones along the way.

If just that part of the process, even before the actual upload starts, already takes several hours, then I daresay you simply need a faster computer.

Stamp collectors don't actually send mail, and DVD Collectors don't actually watch DVDs! Didn't you know that? 

(I wonder how many million dollar art collections are stored in vaults)

Run a database repair before doing anything else.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

I don't know what you are calculating or how much running time your DVDs have, but that not only sounds to much, but it IS :-D

If I would watch 24/7 and start now re-watching everything (including bonus materials) I'd "only" need 7 years, 211 days , 1 hour and 13 minutes (inlcuding bonus of 147 days, 16 hours, 32 minutes).

So watching only 7 hours a day, I would be done before I am 70 :-D

@huskersports: I regulary do database repair, especially as I do so many corrections/modifications with common names that week by week 10 - 100 actors can be deleted.
