Hi all.

I do all my entering and deleting on my Desktop, then upload the Database and then download it on my Phone.

Recently I spent a bit of time entering six months of Watched Discs Film data on my phone only to have it all wiped out the next time I updated the collection on the phone from the database uploaded from the Desktop 

Is there a way to avoid this? I was thinking I should upload the database from my phone after entering the Watched data. Would the information then stay in the database after I update from the Desktop or will this erase it all again?

Can I enter the Watched data on the Desktop somehow? I couldn't find that anywhere.

Thank you.

The prefered way of transfering data between the iOS app and the desktop is via Wi-Fi, not through your online collection. Two things you need to do for this to work:
1) In the desktop program, go to Tools/Options/Sharing and enable sharing.
2) In the iOS profiler, go to the Databases tab and click Databases and then Change Connection Type, then click the top option (Connect to DVD Profiler for PC).
Now you should be able to synchronize directly against the desktop. But before you do that I suggest that you take a backup of your desktop database, just to be safe.

Yes, of course! Select DVD/Watched by from the menu, or just press Ctrl-W.
