Guest I have hundreds of cookbooks in my home library. Is there a scanner and program that will allow me to scan in the titles and organize them in a database. Would also be great for CD collection.

Any bar code is a simple identifying number to a given product and does not carry the title or product details itself. This said, you could use a basic scanner like the Motorola LS2208 to scan the bar codes on your books or CDs into an Excel file. Once inputted your could then fill in details about the item like a title or description to keep track of them.
