Dil,

There's a new breed of software out now called media managers. These semi-automatically updated databases are a real time-saver. The technology is such that your media manager software / database continuously maintains a browser-type base of folders, files, metadata, project info, etc. for ALL types of media files that perhsps span across your PC and even your entire network.

I'd like to recommend Microsoft's Expression Media (now version 2). I have found that even my Nikon Capture NX 2 software specifically supports information exchange with Microsoft's manager and so therefore, I'm not ever in a position where I'm forced to maintain multiple applications (as far as the cataloging of my media files are concerned). I jump back and forth seemlessly between my application programs and the Expression Media manager; flawlessly. And by the way, this product is able to import media file info directly from previously created databases (if you have it) and so I would say NO; you haven't wasted your time at all.

Here's a link to the Expression product page and you can download a trial version there!

Hope this helps you. Regards
