I did try to find a program that matches your (and my) needs yesterday.
It seems as if PixVue comes close. It can create thumbnails locally (I
assume these include the metadata), so that you can search your local
collection. This requires that you first load all your CD's to PixVue
(I did a very quick scan of the app yesterday, you have to open it with
the context menu of pictures/folders, it is not regular exe).
Searching is done with the standard Windows file search (look for
*.jpg's containing the word "Julie" is possible). This implies that
other search tools can do the same job, I think...
