Hello everyone,

I am new to the forum and this is my first post.

I have got a handheld scanner attached to my PC and have scanned quite a lot of my collection into DVD Profiler. I had quite a few questions, most of which I found answers to on the forums - so thanks for that!

The only thing I couldn't find was how do I search for a movie or TV series using my barcode scanner? for example, say my friend wants to borrow a few DVDs - instead of typing the titles and finding and appending the loan information,  it would be handy to scan each one and go instantly to that title.

I have sort of managed to work out a way of doing this but its not the correct way. What I do is edit the DVD and under 'Personal Information' section I scan the barcode again into the 'Location' field. This will instantly bring up the DVD in question. Trouble is I have to go back and scan everything again for this to work - Is the barcode not saved anywhere (searchable) once you search and add a title?

Just scan the UPC, it should go to that profile in your collection. Doesn't work if the profile is an alternate ID.

In the DVD menu you find "Find by UPC" or press Alt+F10. It opens a small window ready to receive a UPC number.

Thank You! 

I new there had to be a way. The Alt F10 shortcut is even better.
