This isn't a free program ($25?) but you just scan the cd and cddb fills in the song titles etc. With the boots, I do tend to change the titles to start with the date of the show yyyy-mm-dd but that's just because I like them in chronolgical order when searching. This program allows you to export data to Excel etc. which I use for trading purposes, i.e. mailing a Excel file with my boot collection. I originally bought it to catalog my 1000's of commercial cd's for insurance purposes.
