I'm in Canada and I tried Movie Collector a while back and found that at least 1:5 movies were missing from their database by barcode. Many Canadian releases have a unique barcode, separate from the US, but we long since lost a couple of our major contributors. I've personally added hundreds of Canadian UPCs to the DVD Profiler database and always have a stack going behind the computer that I need to add to the database.

The other thing with Movie Collector is that I found the way it did movie box sets to be a disaster. There was no way to really add child records or to search individual movies, which defeated my purpose of using the software to prevent duplicate purchases.

Does the XML export from DVD Profiler actually add entries to the Movie Collector DB?

Collector has a DVD Profiler import function and brings everything across.
