I used to use the Access CD database, it's quite good but you need to manually input everything. I've got close to 5000 CDs, albums & singles, and I got fed up with having to type everything in.
I found this piece of software - Music Collector from click here . It costs $40, but makes it much easier to catalogue your music as you just pop the CD in your PC and it finds the details from their database. You have to check everything though, as everything is user generated, so there's quite a lot of errors. I still find it better than entering everything myself.
