Frequently Asked Questions

What is shareware, and how can I download and use software without having to pay for it? What's the catch?

There is no catch. Shareware is simply a way for software authors to get their program out to people to try. There are lots of shareware programs on the Internet - Music Catalogue Master is one of them. We want you to try the program - hopefully like it - and then buy it. You have nothing to lose by trying shareware. If you like it, you can purchase a license for it. If you don't like it - simply uninstall it. You have nothing to lose.

How is Music Catalogue Master supported?

Go to the support page for Music Catalogue Master. It contains an online form that you can use for email support, as well as a link to the MCM 5 Manual which will open in your browser, and a link to a zipped copy of the MCM 5 Manual that you can download and unzip onto your hard drive.

What is the difference in the online databases that MCM uses to automatically enter CDs and vinyl records into the data tables?

The Enter CDs Automatically window uses the Gracenote CDDB database. This is the world standard for entering all information regarding CDs, including track information, credits, etc. However, the CD must be in your computer drive and read by the control before it can enter any data.

The four databases on the Enter Records Automatically window (MusicBrainz, Discogs, and Freedb) do not have to have a CD in the drive. They all work similar in that you type an Artist and Title into the search fields - and the database you have selected returns matches. MusicBrainz does not have as many Titles in its database - but the data is very complete. has quite a bit of data - but it does not store track times - so none of your tracks will have track times if you enter the CD/record using the database. Discogs has a lot of information with track times and classical information. Freedb has a huge number of titles in its database - sometimes too many - and the quality is not as good as the other three.

I would recommend you play around with entering different CDs/records using the different databases - and I'm sure you will soon have an appreciation for what each of them bring to the table.

How do I get upgrades for Music Catalogue Master if I am a registered user?

The latest upgrade is always available by clicking here. Starting with version 5.21 - the program will look for updates every time it starts and prompt the user to download them automatically.
