How To Tell Oh From Zero In Cd Key?

Question

Roxio Creator was installed on my computer when I bought it. I made a copy of the CD for safe storage & of course need to keep the CD Key with it. I assume the CD Key is the # on the label that seals the CD envelope (20 digits). But I can't tell the oh's from the zeros. How do I do that?

 

Also, I registered the product with Roxio. Now when I look at my account, it shows my registered product and a key, but that key is different from the key on the CD envelope. If I ever need to restore the software, which key should I use?

 

Thanks for everyone's help.

Honestly not everyone can see the differences! An O is closest to a C whereas a 0 will always be narrower – CO0

 

Take it to a couple of people and have them write down what they think it is for you. Compare that to what you wrote. When you have 3 out of 3 that would be a good candidate :o

I have no idea what the "20 digit" number is on the disc envelope, but I highly doubt that it is the product/cd key. The format for the key is 17 characters in the following structure: xx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

 

It's likely that the key listed in your account online is the correct one, and should match the one included with your packaging. Mine from my downloaded version matches what's listed on my account.

 

The packaging should denote your product/cd key as such. All of my packaged products are labeled as "CD Key:....". My understanding also is that they do not use the letter O, only zero 0 in there keys. Same with number 1 and letter I, they only use the number 1, to avoid confusion.

 

Also, since it was a product that came with the computer, the vendor you purchased it from should be able to provide you with the information.
