Are you archiving documents, pictures, music, videos, and other files to optical media? If so, you know that it is quite frustrating to find that file you are looking for if you ever need it in the future once you’ve moved it from your computer. Sure, you can label your discs with as much information as you can, but what if you could remember only the name of a file instead of what disc it was on? If so, Visual CD is the fast and easy way to help you out.

Visual CD is a disk cataloging tool to index the contents of your media storage such as CDs, DVDs, HD-DVDs, BlueRay Discs, USB disks, hard disks, folders and allow you to search the contents at a later date.

Visual CD can index the files from the media by name, date, ID3 tag data, audio-video and picture information, generate thumbnail from picture and video files, and even catalog files which are contained in Zip/Cab/Rar/7-Zip archive files. Additionally, you can password protect catalogs in case you want to hide sensitive filenames from prying eyes, create MP3 playlist file without having the physical disks in the drive. Upon insertion of the corresponding disk, you can open files, extract Zip/Cab/Rar/7-Zip archive, splitting files, and more.

Visual CD is easy to use! The Windows Explorer-like style ensures that you will not find any difficulties to use it. Visual CD also support full Windows visual style and user friendly interface.

Visual CD is freeware. Feel free to use and give this program to anyone you know. Your  donation or  feedback would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy…
