I'm not sure how far you got, but the process that should work is:

1) Add the title as a manual dvd

2) Under the DVD menu select Change UPC/Locality

3) Select the EAN (or UPC if US I guess) radio button and enter  the UPC

4) Click the big blue arrow to the right and in the list that appears select create new alternative version, which appears at the bottom

5) Edit the details and then you should be able to submit


Thanks for this info! It doesn't look like I can rate, star or upvote this post.

Yeah...         

Not one, not two, but three DVDs that the wife bought at Dollar Tree (or one of the alternatives), all with the same UPC [828706545461] on the actual cover insert, not some generic sticker on the plastic.

So, are we absolutely, positively sure that new contributions to the master database without cover scans are okay to submit AND they will be accepted by the powers-that-be?

Because I'm already seeing where some newly released Hallmark DVD movies w/ cover scans but with some improper information (disc id [double-ugh! ], runtime, rating, overview) have been accepted and I'd rather get out in front of the bad information, but I currently don't have access to my hi-res scanner.

Still buy DVDs.

The original rule of thumb was: a) BluRay ONLY if it came with the DVD and b) only if $20 or less.

Option A is getting a lot harder, especially from Disney/Marvel, which is increasingly annoying. The reasoning is for borrowing and/or traveling purposes. I'll lend/send the DVD instead of the superior BluRay. The number of BluRay only discs in my collection has to be less than 10-15.

Have not bought a single 4K disc. Don't plan on doing so any time soon. Forced obsolescence is something I despise! And, I don't have nearly the necessary equipment to justify in doing so either.

In my quest to know a bit more about these Dollar Tree DVDs and Blu-rays I did found a thread on Blu-ray.com which describes the issue and even shows the same UPC#, well at least the 828706545188 one.

See post #21024 for some examples.





Hmm, post #23396 does show something interesting.
It seems that these UPC numbers are changed on a monthly base, so every month they are using a different UPC.

Identical as far as I can tell, but the differing barcodes defeated my collection barcode search. (These are the actual barcodes and not DT stickers. duh.)


               

What in the ever-loving @@!#@@%%@$!! ???

Yes! Thank you so much for the link!

Honestly, it's certainly better to be prepared ahead of time and have this BEFORE something happens!

Yes, the é is a perfectly normal character.

Maybe you'd consider to remove the accent from the search title, to encourage DVD Profiler to find the profile even if you enter the title without the accent. The sort title is local-only and it is used in addition, when searching for titles...


Thank you! I removed the accent from the search title as suggested and will submit soon.

I've got questions, you've got answers...

I wish to contribute this profile to the master database.

In the DVD Title field, I simply have: A Star Is Born

I do NOT have: A Star is Born / A Star is Born / A Star is Born

In the Edition field, I have: 3 Film Collection

Is all of the above correct? (4) separate discs in the case appearing to contain 1 movie per disc (don't really know what is on the 4th disc at this time). The 1954 version, the 1976 version, and the 2018 version.

Thanks in advance.

Is all of the above correct? Single disc in the case appearing to contain all 3 movies on 1 side. I don't have "Includes 3 movies" NOR do I have any of the 3 movie titles anywhere in the profile

Thanks in advance.

I wish to contribute this profile to the master database. I checked in the contribution rules under the Titles section and didn't really see an answer other than "Use the title from the front cover."

In the DVD Title field, keep the e-acute [é] in From Friend To Fiancé ?

Thanks in advance.
