I'm close to purchasing a license for DVD profiler but I have one major concern.  Can DVD profiler handle digital downloads?  (eg, a purchased digital movie from Amazon.com).  I have purchased quite a few digital-only movies through some great deals I've found and would like to have the movie in my collection but would like it noted that it digital only.

Am I crazy?  or is this doable?

This can be done with manual profiles.  You can download an existing DVD or Blu-ray profile, which will have all the data for that film, then convert it to a manual profile.

Additional to the above:
You can make custom media types, so just make a media type "Digital Download" or similar, and you've got a way to track them with DVDP.
If you want, you've got also the possibility to make a custom collection category for this movies.

Forgot about that.  Green for you.

Now that you know how, your next question will be: can I play them?

Answer: yes. See the LoadDVD plugin, and the Layouts Forum for ways of playing trailers and other media directly from within DVD Profiler.
Thanks for your support.

Another idea instead of making a manual profile would be to choose one DVD/BR version. (Good would be a popular version)
Change all things that are different at the download media. (local of course)
Then lock all those fields.

Pro:
- You'll automatically get all updates made on this profile (For example cast and crew gets often updates: New Birth Years, New crew roles, ...)

Con:
- You won't be able to add this version of the movie a second time
- It's listed with UPC (Depending on you if you want to see it as con)

Welcome Special K!!!   

@VirusPil: nice ideas. Will use them myself. Your "Con" was a mild one, cause you can always go back and change to manual later, so I like it also.

Thank you guys!  You've made me feel welcome already!   I can't wait to get busy loading all my DVDs.  I used the free edition many moons ago and stopped keeping track of what I had.  I need to take sort through what I already have loaded and what I don't.
