CD Burning programs & the CD LABEL cases.
I have over 100 files created in - Adaptec CDCreator 3(it saves as .cl3)
I upgraded to Roxio Adaptec CDCreator 5 (it saves as .jwl)
It does not recognise my old files (cl3 type).
Can you believe the nerve of that company to do that?
How can I convert a .cl3 file to a .jwl file?

Hi there Roxy747, 

The problem you're facing is that you're trying to convert a sound
file, the *.C13 file, into a label file, the *.JWL extension.

The .C13 file extension denotes a  "Lossless .WAV compression" file. 
Additionally, the "Charlie Packer" program associated with files of
this type is no longer available from the manufacturer.  See this site
for a little more inormation:

More information on the Charlie Packer program, as well as a copy of
it, can be found on CNet Asia at this URL:,39000587,20057150s,00.htm

This is the text about the program from the above site:
"Charlie Packer can be used for compressing mastered CD tracks,
mixdowns or individual multitrack takes, sound effects, and for
basically any other type of recording when sound quality need to be
top of the line. The program features a zero-loss audio compression
tool. It compresses a 16-bit stereo wave audio, for example in WAV,
BUN, and ACD files, by 20 to 70 percent. During the cycle of
compression and decompression, no data is changed or lost."

The .JWL extension is a CD jewel box label-making program extension,
associated wtih Easy CDcreator:

If you are trying to convert jewel box lables made with CD Creator 3
to compatible files in CD Creator 5, try looking for the .JWL
extension on your old CD's.  It's possible that the extension won't
show up in Windows because it's not recognized, so be sure to set your
controls this way:

*  Open Windows Explorer, the file maintenance program, not the web
*  Click on the View menu on top
*  Select "Folder Options" from the menu
*  Select the "View" tab
*  Make sure that "Show All Files" is selected under the "Files and
Folders" section at the very top of the list.
*  Make sure that the "Hide File Extensions for Known File Types" is
NOT selected.

(These instructions are for Windows 98, however the concept is the
same in most other Windows environments.)

Though you answered my question, unfortunately it cannot be solved.
I would have thought that todays tech. could, especially considering
it's in the same program. Hence my poor tips.
