Thanks for your help Hector, but it's not the behavior I am seeing. I just ran a test and I definitely am not seeing the duplicate movie being added.
I wonder if it's because I did the import in multiple stages. I didn't want to deal with verifying all 1700+ titles at once, so I imported about 100 titles at a time. It looks like the movies that did not import were in later files - after the title had been imported in an earlier file. My description of the test should clarify what I mean.
Here was my test:
-Look for "The Mummy" in my collection - I have 2 owned videos, DVD & HD-DVD
-Verify in my XML file that the Blu-Ray for The Mummy exists (it does) - see TheEnd.xml
-Import the XML file into Coollector Tools/Import/Import from Coollector Movie Database XML File
-Verify The Mummy is in the imported file list. It was found in the "Already Imported" tab - see AlreadyImported.jpg
-Click the "Import the recognized movies" button
-Look again for "the Mummy" in my collection. It still shows just 2 owned videos, the DVD & HD-DVD
I did check the log file that the import created and The Mummy is listed. See Test419.txt
Can you verify this is what happens - just try to re-import an already existing title into your collection? If so, I can delete my existing database, merge all the XML files into one and do the import at one time and everything should be captured, but it would be easier if I could add just the missing movies and avoid killing all the work I have already done.
Also, I just realized that for TV show series it removed the season designation during import (Archer shows as multiple DVDs, but all are called just "Archer"). Is there a way to add the season designator (not episode) to the movies in my collection? Maybe under "Details"? Or would making this part of a pack allow me to designate the season? I see there's an "Episodes" field, but the choices are fairly random. Can I just populate that with whatever text I choose?
I didn't use another app, I had my collection in an excel file. So I saved the movies I wanted to import to a CSV. Then I used an online site (covertcsv.com) to create the XML file (using a custom template) and then imported that. Tedious, but only because I chopped up my collection into so many files.
As far as the music videos go, I think it would be a dozen or so.
I tried to upload the files, but everything except the jpg was rejected.
Thanks for the help.
