Organizing DVD masters

We have produced a lot of DVDs, and I am looking for a good way to organize them?
How do you organize DVDs, and what software do you use?

We are also located on 3 different places, 2 places for editing, and another one for duplicating.
Is there any solution available so we can synchronize DVDs between 3 places so we can see who have/doesn`t have something

Thanks for help

I produce .iso files for each DVD and BD I produce. It's one file and everything's in there. I can then use IMGBurn to make disks on almost any machine. That's the simplest workflow I can find.

I will copy all the files I want to keep to a folder on an external drive. I break them up like this:
-DV: Where I'll keep an SD version of the final output
-Lossless: Where I'll keep the edited master. Rare I'll do this because they're huge
-DVD: ISO file version of DVD master
-BD: ISO file version of BD master
-Graphics: External packaging and menu graphics in all formats
-Music: If there's special music, I'll put it here.

Hope that helps.

I'm not familiar with cataloging softwares, although I'm sure there are options out there.
If I had to store DVD titles in 3 locations, I'd probably create a simple spreadsheet, something like this, and share it between locations.

Patrik, for an operation as large as your why don't you just network a dedicated server?
