You _must_? :)

The Express version of Visual Studio includes SQL Express, so you could
have a database server if you wanted to, at no monetary cost.

However, you certainly could write a program that saves your data to a
simple file. How best to do that would depend on what kind of file you
want to write. I would say that the most common techniques in a .NET
program would use either XML or binary serialization, which you can read
up on in the MSDN documentation.

Yes, you can store it in for example XML.

However - Why reinvent the wheel?
There are several free applications for maintaining your DVD collection.

For my own collection I use DVD Profiler
