Hi. I am trying to add the movie 'Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer' to my Owned file. The DVD I have is barcode # 030306738222. However, when I highlight this movie, it adds a different version to my Owned file. Any suggestions?? Thanks.

What do you mean "highlight this movie" ?

I made the test, and I have no problem. I go to that movie, then click (in the "owned videos" box) the video with the barcode 030306738222 (you might have to click the left button if it's not visible), then click the button "add as owned", and voila.

I'm sorry. I meant when I add (the green plus sign) the movie with barcode # 030306738222, it shows in my Owned file as the movie with barcode # 030306770093. Also, since I wrote I have tried adding the movie with barcode # 027616865403 (Hannibal). This shows in my Owned file as the disk with barcode # 027616077974.

Maybe it's just the pictures that are different. My movie 'Henry' has the black cover picture with the name Henry on top under 'Director's Edition' but the picture in my Owned file shows the red cover with Henry on the bottom. Also, my "Hannibal' movie has the cover with the half-face and red eye, but my Owned file shows the full-face with mask cover.
I know I added the correct movies, because when I try to add them again the pop-up window shows the correct barcode and only let's me remove them from my Owned file.
If I'm doing something wrong (I'm new here), I won't bother you again.

When you use the green plus sign, you add from scratch, as the tooltip that appears explains to you.

If you really own the video #030306770093, you should select it from the existing videos, and click the button "add as own". This way, all the fields will be set according to this existing video.

If the video you own is missing from our list of existing videos, then you'll add from scratch. When you add from scratch, the media type and language will be set to the last values you've used, and a barcode will be associated, for the video to have a picture instead of none, but it's almost random (if you last added an english DVD, it'll try to pick up the barcode of an english DVD). You can easily change the barcode field to select a different picture.

If you've used the green plus button, then the barcode was chosen randomly. How could the program have know what was the right barcode ? You can easily see what barcode has been associated to your file.

If your video is in the list of existing videos, you should add it from that existing video.

Even simpler, you could use the "barcode search" tab from the left panel.
