Data Crow is a free Java application lets you create a database of your multimedia collections and files by collecting information from the web. You can keep track your database with this handy tool. The install file is around 70 MB and it needs another 30MB of Java current updates. From the main window you can select different modules such as audio CD, movies, images, programs & software’s and even non-digital files as books and stamps. You can either add the information about an item manually or get it from the web.
|Data Crow 3.0 Interface|
Data Crow lets you find and add details to your multimedia database directly from Amazon, Google, ISBNdb etc. You can use this GPL licensed software instead of Libra another multimedia database software that currently has no updates (Libra official website has a 404 error page). For those who liked Libra, Data Crow is a must favorable replace.
