I have a couple hundred...a small library in comparison to some of us. We were discussing this before (I can't find the question now), and I believe there were a few wooters with 1000+ dvds/blurays.

I have about 600 DVDs (haven't bought one in 3 or 4 years) and have about 600 Blu-Ray movies as well. I'm selling the DVDs when I get the Blu-Ray movie.

We have over 150, most of which are for my soon to be three year old granddaughter... for example, we just bought her the complete Fraggle Rock collection... being a kid spoiling grandparent is awesome...

247 - listed on a spreadsheet sorted 3 different ways (alphabetical, by rating - G, PG, R, etc, and by genre) -- yup, I know...I have a problem.

I have about a 100 DVD's and 50 BluRay's. It's a small library, but I only purchase movies that I enjoy seeing more than once without being bored of them.

@mschauber: anything we might wanna buy off of you?

About 40 BDs and a few hundred DVDs.

Or in other words "Not nearly enough"

What's a DVD?

Do digital movies count?

vote-for5vote-against

Somewhere between 550-600 DVDs, 80% of which are still sealed and can now be purchased for less than half of what I paid for them. Ugh.

My daughter updated our inventory (Excel spreadsheet) last year and we had gone over 600 DVDs at that point and had approximately 70+ Blu-rays too. I'm currently putting the movies into a program I like called Coollector Movie Database. It's a great program that differentiates the many versions or releases of movies on DVD and Blu-ray (even HD-Dvd, VHS, Laserdisc, etc). Their database even checks for current pricing and gives you the ability to add your own details that you want for a particular movie (ie., costume designer, lighting director, barcode, etc). It's updated every 2-3 weeks as new movies are added to the database. I can't remember how many movies are currently in the database but it's quite a few. They do have 463,000+ individuals listed and have 134,000+ prices listed. It takes a while to put your movies in but once you're finished, the different ways you can list or search your library are pretty awesome.

I have stopped buying and gone to Redbox and Netflix. We had more invested than I would like to consider and rentals are so easy now.

@moosezilla: Take a look at http://dvd.waffull.com The DVDs are collection #'s 1 to 434. Let me know if you see anything you want.

@golanta00: You may want to consider DVD Profile (http://www.invelos.com/dvdpro/Info.aspx) You simply scan the UPC, enter the UPC manually, type in the name or stick the DVD/Blu-Ray into the drive and virtually all the info you could ever want is pulled from the database. I bought it back in 2001, I think.

For $5 or so you can get a bar code scanner (called cat something or other.) I use it to maintain a database of my music, movies, books & wine.

@mschauber: Thanks for the info, very much appreciated.

I have a roku, that's all I need :)

I own Two 400 disc DVD juke boxes... Going to get a 400 disc for blu-ray soon, because I'm finally reaching the point I need one. Its convenient for never having to deal with the discs in hand, and lets me centralize them in the basement, and have my own "Video on Demand" library action going on.

If you are an audio video fanatic, collecting Blurays still makes sense and it is the only way to have the best presentation possible and maintain the luxury of watching the disk's extras on your own time schedule. But, if presentation is not of paramount importance and you can live without a disk's extra features there is just no need for DVDs. Over the last 10 years I have amassed a collection of over 1,500 DVDs... mostly rendered useless by my Roku. I have a few hundred Blurays but in the last year have dropped my purchases dramatically now that I use VUDU which provides a true 1080p picture with very few artifacts and 5.1 Dolby Plus sound... its not quite Bluray quality but pretty damn close...

True confessions from a DVD addict...

I have under 20. I'm really big on DVD buying since I have cable, the internet, Netflix, Redbox and DVR I really don't need to buy a movie to see it, and there aren't many I watch repeatedly. The ones I do (like Office Space or Princess Pride), I own.

vote-for3vote-against

WAY to many. I have a wall dedicated to just Blu-Ray, DVD, and video games.

vote-for3vote-against

I only have a couple Blu Ray discs. I have about 1400 DVDs, including multi-disc TV seasons. I'm waiting for hard drives to come back down so I can put them all on a network drive.

2. One is Joe Dirt that I bought when I first got a DVD player. The other is a Tool music video DVD that was bundled with a CD (you couldn't just buy the CD at that time).

I have 4 shelves of dvds/blurays. Don't really want to count them all, but it's a pretty good number.

vote-for3vote-against

I have 772 titles consisting of 1605 discs between DVD's and Blurays.
Love me some movies and TV series. :P

My wife and I met at the movies so that is kind of our thing we have over 1,500 dvds and blu rays and are always getting more.

vote-for3vote-against

200 or so DVD and 0 Blu Ray.

vote-for3vote-against

1,908 (including complete series like SG-1), about 10% Blu-ray. I've been using the old free version of Movienizer for cataloging. I'll have to look at some of the other suggested programs- thanks for suggesting them. I've got one of the CueCat Barcode Scanners for data entry as well- check for hacked ones on ebay or Amazon.

I buy (mostly blu-rays) and rip them to my HTPC, because I don't have cable, or Netflix. I almost never pay more than $10 since I'm cheap, and I do have a large backlog of purchased but not ripped DVDs.

I currently have 230 movies, and 28 TV series stored on my computer, and throw the discs in a couple large boxes that my wife tries to hide.

I haven't bought as many lately as I am enjoying quite a lot of the TV series currently running. But I have thousands. Last count I had about 1,800 movies, maybe 1,000 discs of TV series, and several hundred of anime movies or TV series. I have bought a couple of hundred since I quit maintaining my "card catalog" to prevent duplicate buying. My friends say that when California sinks into the ocean, my house will be the new Hollywood. It is definitely not hard to get people to watch my pets when I travel.

Me, maybe a dozen or so. For the kids, a couple dozen. I really only buy a movie for the kids, and mostly they are used. I just can't justify paying $20 or more for a movie I'll watch once, maybe twice??? Better to just rent it.

vote-for1vote-against

DVD's probably in the neighborhood of 500+, Blu-Ray's, another 100... I feel a little better knowing it's a fairly modest collection now!
