advise choosing database/app

Hello all
I'm requesting advise on choosing an app, probably database...(I've never set up a database)...Like many, I have stacks of CD's I've made filled with apps and files that I've collected over the years....I would like to create a central point that I can find what I'm looking for when I need to access an item on one of these discs, not even knowing which disc to use...
I would also like to know if it's possible to have this app automatically create entries into this database by reading the disc, rather than manually typing in each entry.....or am I asking too much?.......
*** TIA *** franxter
