Question

Just bought the Roxio Creator NXT for a hundred bucks......before I open it I would like to know two things....will this program open stored files that were created in Easy Media Creator 8?......I have like 800 files, both CD and Jewel case that I would like to be able to access again if I install NXT. My OS ins Windows 8. Second question is this....does NXT include a jewel case insert label program?....thanks so much....DAVE

Hi Dave,

 

I don't know where/how my post of an hour or so ago disappeared to. Perhaps someone didn't like my comments on Creator Classic? :blink:

 

NXT won't load/use your EMC 8 project files [.RCL] They were written by Creator Classic, and Creator Classic has been quietly put to death following Creator 2012. There is no Creator Classic in NXT.

 

NXT has the two label programs which have been standard in Roxio suites over the last few years. There's the Express Labeler [Create Labels] and the Roxio Label Creator [Create Labels - Advanced] Both will save their work in .JWL format, but only the Roxio Label Creator will load them.

 

Roxio Label Creator was happy to load a very simple .JWL I had archived from EMC 8, but I didn't know if it would handle more complex ones. I installed EMC 8 on a fresh machine and created a more complex label, and NXT's Roxio Label Creator loaded it nicely.

I apologize wholeheartedly to The Eagles for featuring their work with such a visual theme, but I was in a hurry.

 

I tried a sneaky trick I had for running earlier versions of the Label Creator in Win 7, but it doesn't work with version 8. However it seems as if you should be all right for your .JWL files in NXT, anyway.

 

Regards,

Brendon

NO!

 

YES!

 

You would be hard pressed to find any progam that can open files from 8 versions ago!!! :huh:

 

Looks like this, probably hasn't changed much since 2005 ;)

Jim...thanks for the reply....I don't know if EMC was 8 versions ago but I know it has been around for a while....but hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it right....and yes, the label creator in NXT looks very familiar!!....I didn't think that NXT would be able to open my EMC 8 files but when I called Corel and was going to order NXT over the phone the little foreign guy with the borderline indecipherable dialect on the other end of the line swore to me that the NXT version would open EMC 8 files....I didn't really think so...it was more like dude beig desperate for a sale....thanks again.

Hi Dave,

 

NXT will not open EMC 8 project files

NXT's Label Creator will open EMC 8 JWL files.

 

Cheers,

Brendon

Thanks Brendon!

 

I was hoping you would see this one as you are the resident expert of Label Creator and compatibility issues :lol:

 

Jim, I know this is highly taboo to go off thread topic...however, I just wanted to comment on one of your machines listed....one of my five machines is also a Dell Dimension 8300...of the 9 computrs I have owned, this has been the over all most reliable and duable...I have the exact specs on mine that you do save for a couple. I am retiring her (9 years old) though because of internet video playback issues (You Tube, etc) being choppy and halting at times. My 8300 came with 512 RAM back in the day and upgraded to 1GB and then 4GB...she maxes out capability wise at 4....but when I put 4 gigs in she sometimes freezes up now....I also upgraded to an nVidia GeForce 6200 video card with 512 MB DDR2...hoping to solve the video playback jerkies....not too much luck....just wondering how that particular machine of yours handled this task....I'm thinking the playback issues probably has more to do with the single core processor than anything....I see you are strictly a Dell guy...and that so far you have avoided the obnoxious (for me!) Windows 8 OS....thanks for your thoughts....

The 8300 has been a truck for me :lol:

 

Bought it New in 2003, it was then handed off to my wife until she complained of 'slow' so she got a refurb 530 and the 8300 went into mostly disuse ;)

 

I use it for things like beta testing but have never had any issue with video and even use it now as a test platform for the Roxio Game Cap HD PRO!

 

Like you, I hate to throw them out if they work! But it is on its' last leg, if any component fails that I don't have a replacement on hand, it is goes to the recycler!
