If you have lost or damaged the jewel case for one of your CDs, this creates two problems. In addition to no longer having a protective case to store the disc in, you also no longer have a printed copy of the album's track list.
While the first problem cannot be resolved without a trip to an electronics store, you can print a new track list for the CD on your own using any of several free online sources. After printing the list, you can cut or fold it and place it inside a jewel case.
Open a Web browser and navigate to FreeDB.org, Amazon.com or CDUniverse.com.
Click inside the search box at or near the top of the window. If you are using CD Universe to obtain a track list, click the drop-down menu and select the search term that you want to use, such as "Artist" or "Album."
