Easy CD Creator 5 with Vista

Recommended Posts

How can I install Easy CD Creator 5.1 in Dell E521 with Vista? I get a message directing me to Roxio.

 

ECDC 5 will NOT work with Vista,. only EMC 9.1 or 10 or ok.

Old computer crashed. Bought new one with Vista. havce a lot of CD graphics created with Roxio Platinum 5. Was able to move the files over and they are there, but they won't open.

 

Have I lost these? Or will a newer version of Roxio recognise the files and allow them to open?

 

The Roxio website doesn't help.

 

Your thoughts appreciated.

More information required.

 

What do you mean by CD graphics? What kind of files? You have not given anything to work with :unsure:

 

BTW, you have posted to a thread that is a year old :rolleyes:

It is better you start a brand new thread and state your problem with quite a bit more information.

Install Label Creator 5 on your Vista system, providing you still have your installer CD.

 

Just do a Custom Install, taking out everything except Label Creator. Then restart Windows and you'll see an Easy CD Creator icon. Run the menu app and select CD Label Creator, and Voila!! There you are. [i even found an old Version 5 .JWL file to run :) ]

Brendon,

 

I think I got it.

 

I have to move my old files separtely into this in order to view them, but they will open there.

 

I will play with it a little more and figure it out.

 

Thanks for the help.

Brendon, I have the same problem, with both the cd labels, And with the music files, also. Would this solution work with all of Easy CD Creator 5? (I'll have to find an old copy on e-bay, that CD never survivied my last move....I still have the manual though!?)

 

I must have approx. 2500 songs sitting in my computer that won't play after the vista upgrade. (The upgrade was done by a retailer, but thankfully though, they saved my old music files in a backup folder.

Music files should have been fine (and even getting Label Creator to work is a minor miracle, but Brendon does those regularly)

 

The fact they won't play on Vista is another matter. If they're mp3s they should - but then again, if they are .wma, the DRM in WMP11 is horrendous and that could be the problem.

 

Get hold of gspot (free download) and see if there are any codecs you would need
