Sorry for two post I forgot to mention the portable version worked fine 4me and I've found this a useful and easy to use program. Thanks.
Cathy indexes files stored on removable media (CD's, DVD's or even diskettes), hard disks or net drives, to create searchable catalogs that can be used without having access to original media. The program is small, fast and easy-to-use with search capabilities based on file name, date, and size. Additional features include filtering options, search duplicates or singles, customizable date format, etc.
If files are available (external/network drive connected, DVD inserted) they can be opened (executed) or deleted directly. Other features include drag and drop support available, printing of both directory trees and MP3 album/song lists, and disk space usage analysis.

@Kermode: Cathy can handle different drives on the same drive letter; however if you catalog on (F:), and later plugin your drive, while (F:) is being used; and you get the drive letter (G:), the database cannot be refreshed.

Simple little program, but unfortunate doesn't support unicode, so if you have any files w/ foreign language or other special characters, they'll get cataloged as "?" for any unicode character.

FYI, I posted a couple of problems I found trying to make Cathy portable @ http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=62490#p62490
MyLib is a cataloging program that uses its own custom database design to store a variety of different catalogs. The program allows a search for file types (e.g. audio, media, text, etc.), sizes, and string/keyword search. MyLib even has a "borrowers" feature that lets you record who has borrowed a disc from your collection.

This should be removed from the database. Neither the website, nor the link via archive.org do work, so there's no way to download. I guess the project is plain dead.

The archive.org mirror link to http://ls.iatp.org.ua/download/files/mylib093ex.zip still works
