Backwards Compatibility With Easy Cd Creator 5

Question

I just installed Easy CD and DVD Burning on my new Windows 7 Professional system. I migrated a large number of Easy CD Creator 5 music projects from my old system. Each project has .cl5, .cif, and .jwl files. It looks like these file types are not directly compatible with Easy CD and DVD Burning. Is there a way to convert the Creator 5 files for use by Easy CD and DVD Burning?

Brendon, our resident Guru expert on the .jwl files may drop in and offer you a solution, but you are talking about trying to convert 14 or 15 year old files to something a pretty much useless newer software can use. I hope that he can help you out.

Hello Gene,

 

Sorry I took so long but I've been making ECDC 5 .cif, cl5, and jwl files and then trying them in Creator 2012, and Easy CD and DVD Burning (v14), and it takes a lot of time.

 

In both suites, Roxio Label Creator [Create Labels - Advanced] will read and print ECDC 5 .JWL files

 

Creator Classic in C2012 will burn all ECDC 5 .CIF files to CD, and will use ECDC 5 DATA .CL5 files, BUT NOT AUDIO CL5 files.

 

Easy CD & DVD Burning has lost Creator Classic, and what is left will not touch .CIF or .CL5 files

 

 

 

What now?

-if you don't want to keep your old system you may as well abandon the project files [.CL5] with it because nothing will use them.

-NXT has a version of Roxio Label Creator which opened my .JWL files, or you could transplant your old Label Creator off your old system onto your Windows 7 and run that there.

-it seems Roxio has abandoned the .CIF disk image format, but there are a number of converters "out there" which can burn your .CIF images to CD, so don't abandon the CIFs.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Thank you for your replies. I don't plan on keeping the old system. I still have all the CD's I've burned with ECDC 5, so I can burn copies when necessary. If I ever need to burn from a CIF file, thanks for the heads up on available converters.

 

Best Regards,

Gene

Don't forget you can transplant the Label Creator and run it in Windows 7.

 

See this topic.
