Anyone have a recommendation for cataloging hundreds of CDs and DVDs with thousands of images of models and other photography? Is Adobe Lightroom overkill for this?

If you're not going to use it as the first step of your digital workflow, then yes, it is. I'm using Aperture now (very similar to lightroom) as I like all it has to offer throughout my workflow.

When I used a dedicated program I used Extensis Portfolio and highly recommend it.

I've used ACDSee and it works reasonably well.
They have a free demo version that you can try. The PRO version has a lot of power, so you may want to check that out.
Cheers,

Here are two popular and robust databases as mentioned by Kevin Ames in his book: The Art of Photographing Women.

Portfolio (Extensis): http://www.extensis.com/en/products/...p?id=prod60006

iView Media Pro (Microsoft): http://www.iview-multimedia.com/mediapro/

Both products retail for about USD 200.00.

mcherry also endorsed the Extensis product.

Hope this information helps.

I thought Iíd let you know about a product called Datacatch Librarian. It catalogs or indexes your removable media by basically extending the Windows file management system so that you are seamlessly searching for files stored on removable media within Windows. fficeffice" />>>
> >
So you search for online and offline photos in the same standard Windows search; you even browse the thumbnails of photos stored on your removable drives or DVDís. You can also manage the physical media in exactly the same way your put a Word document in a newly created folder, you locate your discs in a storage container icon on your desktop AND it tells you what slot their in.>>
> >
The best bit is because it looks and feels like Windows thereís nothing new to learn, it just the same as searching and organizing folders in Windows, very cool and worth a look.>>

Huge Lightroom fan here - much easier than many of the other products mentioned for me. I have a little over 20k images under lightroom's control to date.
