Some feedback from our happy customers:
"CDFinder is absolutely the greatest cataloging program ever written. I can't even remember when I first started using it, but from the very first day, I couldn't live without it. 'The Search is Over!' " Edward P., Colorado
"First off, I want to say that I love CDFinder. It's a great way to quickly search through my catalog of 300,000+ images. No other program I've tried can search through that many images so quickly or easily." Cliff D. Seattle
"I had been using the PC version for many years so when I changed to Mac this year I was nervous about losing all those catalogues & having to start again. No fear, it was completely seamless to move to CDFinder which read & saved everything perfectly! It works like a dream & I am able to instantly bring up thumbnails of former clients when they phone me. This is very valuable to help provide that personal service in portrait photography! This an essential software tool for a pro-photographer. By the way, CDFinder's customer service is personal & fast. I remain impressed & delighted!" Simon Hoyle, Days Bay, New Zealand www.southlight.co.nz
"Many thanks for the truly great product that is CDFinder... the best in the business, I reckon.
Compared to my previous application [DiskLibrary] that took ages to find things... when it did work, CDFinder is a joy to use. And the speed of its search is mind-boggling... Over the past few days I've catalogued my 63 DVDs and now finding the info is perfect.
When viewing the QuickStart Tutorial on your site, the instructor's voice was very friendly and informative. He spoke matter-of-factly and was great to listen to... and made the understanding of the product so easy. I have bookmarked it to watch repeatedly.
" Steve B, Australia
"Thanks, Norbert. I have over 60 external hard-drives that I use with CDFinder. It's an amazing time saver and I look forward to seeing the new features and enhancements of 5.6. Keep up the great work with a very helpful program! We are a film and video production company that tracks a lot of media files for our clients." Kent W., Charlottesville, USA, Paladin Media Group
"Thank you thank you thank you, I can't live without my CDFinder." Brendan D. South Africa
"We love the software as it is and find it hard to believe how we managed to organise our database before using CDFinder" Matej P. Australia
"Your product CDFinder is wonderful. It is cost effective, works well and is an beautiful solution to the very real problem of removing and storing files away from a computer network or hard drive. I have many requests to "find" old images of products and this saves untold time without being an overly complex IT solution to deploy." Darryl v.H., Canada
"I was comparing various Cataloging software and after extensive use and testing I came to conclusion that CDFinder beats the competition by miles." Jelena T., USA
"Many thanks for all of your help, your product support is really excellent." Museum of London. They used CDFinder to convert a large number of old Disk Wizard catalog files to the CDFinder format, and then moved these over to CDWinder for Windows.
"As a long-time user, I LOVE this program. I'm a backup fiend, and CDFinder is the only reasonable way I've found to keep track of so many files on so many drives and DVDs. As I've said before, THANK YOU!" Wilma K., USA
"CDFinder is far superior to the search function that comes with OS X. We do a lot of searching for files on our Xserve and a lot of times the Finder does not find the files we are looking for. When in fact we know the files are there. So we decided to experiment and catalogue our Xserve with CDFinder. Now the search results are 100% accurate!" Justin L, Ontario, Canada
"I am blown away that you were able to add the support for my RAW files and their sidecar files so quickly. This is such a huge plus for someone in my situation where I have a large percentage of files in RAW format only, but still tagged with keywords as a tool for reference. I love this!
I was able to run your new development app through its paces and couldn't be happier. This will make my life so much easier moving forward with my large library of images, and growing.
I was also able to import my existing database of catalogs from DiskTracker which carried in excess of 400 catalogs in it. This was a feature that sealed the deal for me when I was looking at your application. I had so many volumes cataloged in that application that if I would have had to leave that behind I just could not have made the switch. It would have taken too many hours to recreate that database in any new application.
Also, the thumbnails are a fabulous feature and make your application one that is light years beyond what I was using. It is going to be a pleasure from this point forward to search for files with all of these benefits built into the application. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank you for the fabulous application and the equally fabulous support! A thrilled customer," Gary S, New York
"As the last CD editor for MacHome Journal, literally thousands of software products passed through my hands every year. Of those, a few were memorable and ended up on our monthly CD, fewer still turned into products I would actually use, and of that bunch, only a handful is still with us today.
An early adopter, I'll admit to my share of mistakes in standardizing on products that would end up disappearing from the marketplace. That may be part of the reasons I am so glad to see CDFinder is still with us: This is one time where there was no mistake.
Good, reliable software solutions are hard to find. CDFinder is that - it delivers on promises - and better still, it keeps on improving. I may no longer receive as much software to review as I did, but with Mac archives extending back to the early 90's, I can do with all the help I can get simply keeping things organized. Even with the transfer from CD to DVD archiving medium, it takes a few shelves full of binders.
Without this wonderful cataloguing product, I don't even want to think how lost I would be!" Pat St-Arnaud, USA
"I have already started setting up our catalog list in your software and I can already feel the trumendous amount of time we will save, as it will greatly organize our way of handling archives. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO YOU AND ALL THE CDFINDER TEAM!!" Gaël F., Montreal, Canada
"Your program is incredibly fast and easy to use. I've never been so organized. Can't thank you enough! I can now locate any file in less than 5 seconds from any of 23 250gb external hard drives!" Dennis C. Nashville, USA
"CDFinder is excellent! I run a small business which requires recovering files from Archives Regularly. CDFinder helps me do this effortlessly and quickly. Thanks to the team for making such an excellent, effective and affordable product!" Nathan, New Zealand
"I've been using CD Finder for quite a few years and it just keeps getting better and better. It really is the most useful utility I've ever purchased, and of course as virtually all my work is digital nowadays, having a storage cataloguing and retrieval system that works seamlessly is vital. Thanks especially for your ongoing development work. Very much appreciated." Jonathan, Tasmania, Australia
"I would just like to thank you for the update. It is really great! All the new features, the split window (very handy), the icon previews - just wonderful. I've been using CDFinder for a while now, and it has become an indispensable part of my archiving system. To give us such a great upgrade without any upgrade price is also very generous of you - thank you!" Jerry, South Africa
"We're delighted in your level of service & expertise. I found the software yesterday and only expected to be up in running in a few weeks time, but thanks to your brilliant systems, we're operational and just loving your user-friendly system." René, South Africa
"It is AMAZING how much better my files are organized, and how much easier it is to find things (and FAST!) now that I have CDFinder. I thought I was fairly well-organized before. Well, your program ROCKS! Thank you!!!" Wilma K., USA
"An amazing piece of software.....as a photographer I have tons of files to track..." Jim L., USA
"Just wanted to thank you for CDFinder. Excellent!!!! I loved "Findit" from Iomega and always wished there was something out there that was simular. So, I searched and behold! I found CDFinder. So, I downloaded your free trial version and as soon as I found out I could import Findit files (go figure, smart!) I almost fell off my chair and proceeded to immediately purchase the software. So, thanks" Jeff R, East Petersburg, PA, USA
"We have been using Disk Recall in Classic mode for quite some time now and since the developer of Disk Recall seems to have vanished, we were looking for a suitable replacement for Mac OS X. CDFinder is that application. It was able to import all of our Disk Recall catalogs in a matter of minutes! Now we are able to search all of our catalogs simultaneously - a major time saver. The application is fast, well designed and intuitive. So far, we have not needed to read any documentation in order to use CDFinder. Another benefit is that the Business License version allows us to host the catalog database on a remote server. With one click, CDFinder prompts for a server connection password and the catalogs become available. Very slick. The future version boasts full Spotlight search capabilities which will make searching even faster. Well done for creating such a user friendly application. Highly recommended." John Goodchild, Fixamac Software, USA
"I wanted to let you know that I just purchase your product this week and already I have used it several times, delighted beyond reason every single time! Perhaps it is the geek in me...but what could be better then cataloging the 100 CDs I have accumulated over the years of my client files. I am a freelance graphic designer and therefore you can image how often I need to archive my clients files. Although I have always tried to label the CDs well and print out the contents to be inserted into a binder, it didn't always happen and even when it did....searching through a stack of printouts was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I just knew there had to be a better way! And CDFinder is it! It is beyond easy to use, incredibly priced, and a powerhouse of an application. I am shocked that your technology has not been bought or stolen by MAC or IBM! Apple should be begging you to let them buy CDFinder and incorporate it into every single computer they produce. If you haven't thought about yet...CONTACT THEM! ;) So often i find myself writing letters to companies that have let me down with either their service or their product...I am so pleased to be writing to you telling you how much of a difference your product will make in my daily life. You have stopped the insanity of the random CD searches..the pulled hair...the frustration of not knowing if I have the latest version of the file I am looking for. Now when I know I need to do a search in the archives...I am excited!!!!!It took me less then 2 hours (and I am obsessive...so the time was more about me sorting them then actually catologing them) to archive all of my 4 years of CD archives. I am sure I have searched for triple that in the past wasting precious time trying to find an old file. I intend to spread the word to my fellow designers and also to my clients. Thank you again for your product! And thanks for keeping the price so reasonable! It is part of the reason I am so gung-ho about telling everyone I know to buy it! ;)" Groovy Chick Productions, USA
"You should see the face of my clients when I retrieve one of their jobs (sometimes over years old) within the space of less then one minutes!!!! Brilliant and simple program!" Serge Van D., Australia
"Thanks to Norbert for a elegant program - I am impressed with the import facility for our 440 Catalogue files and the well crafted applescripts." Diana M., USA
"I have used Iomega Zip disk catalog system for seven years and was disappointed to hear that it is not compatible with Mac OSX. I have been searching for something new and decided today was the day. I searched on Magazine sites and even called Apple. I found several different programs and spent about 6 hours testing the demos. If I had tried yours first I would have saved about 5 hours! Your program is fantastic!!!! It is everything I was looking for and it is so easy to use. I have years of cataloging to do and I am no longer dreading it. Thanks for taking the time to develop it. I have already forwarded the URL to several friends so that they can buy it as well." Peggy S., Michigan, USA
"Since we've been using CDFinder, locating archived client files is truly a pleasure. No longer do we stress over where the files are, which file is the most current, or what medium is it stored on! My clients are always amazed at how quickly I'm able to locate the exact file(s) needed. Thanks for helping us keep our 19 years of digital files in working order." Erick W, USA
"Thanks 4 a wonderful program, I use it everyday..." Magnus L., Sweden
" I really love your program...especially since it works native to OS X. Thanks a lot!" Robin R, USA
"I still love CD Finder and really , I never found a better app.(and believe me , I tried many )! I always suggest to use it to everyone I know !" Flavia L., Italy
"I have compared it to about 10 other shareware/freeware programs and yours is the best!" Generosa R., USA
"Your's is a great program. Really useful and powerful..." Rober M., Spain
"I originally found your software hunting for something to catalog our CDs we used for archiving. That was at the last print shop I worked at. Now I am running a prep department at another shop. Your software was one of my 1st purchases. I came into a shop that has had explosive growth and the system used here was antiquated to say the least. Again CD Finder is tops, I use it all the time." Mike B., USA
"I'm running it as our main studio filing system for hundreds of CDs in our archives and I just wanted to say that I am really pleased with it." Jonathan J, Australia
"CDFinder is the best!" John C., USA
"Thanks - this will be my life saver! ... and this for $25! What a bargain!" Thomas D, Hawaii
"I like the program very much! I have around 400 CD's with documents on it, and I always find what I search for in less than 30 seconds!" Arne L, Sweden
"I purchased CDFinder 4.1.1 some months back and love it! I've told many of my photographer friends about it and all agree it is the perfect, simple way to catalog the contents CDs and DVDs. Thanks for creating such a simple alternative to some of the stupidly complex cataloging programs." Gary P., USA
