Using a bar code scanner with Catraxx and Discog

Post by Barrister » Sun Jan 13, 2019 11:19 pm

Hello,

Has anyone successfully used a bar code scanner to input new additions to your database by manual entry with Discog? I would like to do that in cases of CDs I have not yet opened rather than type in the bar code manually. If anyone has done this, I would appreciate knowing what type of bar code scanner was used and the procedure for doing so.

Thanks.

I have loaded many Bar Codes into Catraxx with a scanner. The one I use is just a generic USB Scanner bought from EBay (quite some time ago) for $A20 or so. Its not a problem, to Windows the scanner just looks like another keyboard. Using it saves a lot of transcription errors!
