Need CD cover maker for Vista

What I'm looking for is a blank/simple template for making my CDR tracklists.

Just black&white TEXT on the SPINE and the back.

NO COLOR ARTWORK.

I had a template I used forever in XP, after my computer died, I lost everything....every CDR label maker I can find on the internet is full of crap I don't need, and hard to use.

Re: Need CD cover maker for Vista

To clarify, I had a CDR back-cover+spine template in Microsoft Word.

It was just vertical spine text and back cover text.

My computer died, and now I can't find a simple free template on the internet.
I tried opening old files on my new computer, but they were XP files. My new setup is Vista. I'm starting to hate Vista.

Any help is appreciated.

What program are you using in Vista? Try right click, properties > compatibility. Then select XP from the drop down box. This makes the program function as if it is XP. Open the file. Help?

Re: Need CD cover maker for Vista

Thank you, but still Not working. I changed compatability, no success.

My computer has notepad, wordpad and Works. My old stuff (XP) was in MSWord.

I downloaded OpenOffice and have been able to OPEN old CDR cover files, but I cannot edit them, and the format is jacked-up.

I am very confused with all this Vista crap. I have downloaded many "freeware" jewel case (back tray) creators, NONE of them allow me to edit spine text.

I'm doing something wrong....don't know what.

Why don't you install MS Word on your Vista machine?

Re: Need CD cover maker for Vista

Thank you, it's looking like Word is something I'd have to buy....? "Works" came with this computer.

I am overwhelmed by software, and my understanding of all this is....limited!

I'd be great to find a new CD jewelcase template I can use from now on....re-using my old files is secondary at this point.

I have downloaded a dozen g-damn versions of templates, and not a damn one works for me (or I'm a chronic idiot who can't figure out software).

I might have a pdf of it somewhere but not here (Jamaica) with me. Get in touch with me next week and I might be able to set something up for you that you can also edit.
