I am an actor that had a principal role in TV series episode in 1997 (real stories of the highway patrol). I cannot locate this episode or the cast list on IMDB. I do have copies of this episode on DVD, youtube, and video cassette. How do get this placed on IMDB???

Your best bet would be:

* Letting us know what the episode is - it might be there but not quite where you think.

* If it genuinely isn't in the database, then you can add it.

Looking at it, season 3 is "missing" but there are a lot of episodes listed under "unknown" and I assume most of the missing episodes are there awaiting assignment to seasons (it'd probably be possible to work it out from the dates):

I have a copy of the episode on DVD and it says "e 62" at the top of the screen. Maybe that means episode 62? Anyway, I don't know the name of the episode, but the name of the segment I acted in was called "The Jon McCool Story." It was a reenactment. Some other segments were from Lindenhurst, NY, Hartford, Connecticut, and California. I looked in the database and couldn't find any of these. It was out in 96 or 97.

What would I need to do to add this credit to the database?

Yep, that'll be episode 62, although that doesn't help narrow it down to a season. However, the date would suggest season 4:

Although it could be season 5.

Your best bet would be to add it in as unknown, but add whatever information you have to hand (whatever cast and credits you have), so that someone working through them in the future (or someone else involved with the same episode but with more information) can spot the right one and add what they've got. That way you can both work towards pinning it all down.

However, perhaps a bit of extra research might help, there are more complete listings on MSN:

So it might be you can nail down the right date. I am unsure how reliable it is but it seems internally consistent.
