Hi all,

first post here, any help on the problem i have below would be great

I have some CSC on an old computer, I have an 8 word recovery..... my new csc wallet is asking for a 12 word recovery, anyone else have this issue and found a way to recover their csc's?

Was it the original token before the swap?

There is a thread on here that many members used to talk about the older v 3 & 4 wallets.  The new wallet is v5 with 12 word recovery and is much better than the older ones with the 8 word recovery.

I lost 2.5 mil csc over a year ago and by luck I was able to recover it all after 6 months.  My csc files were not corrupted making the recovery easier.  Another member had a million or more and because his csc files were corrupted he could not recover his.  So be careful and read over the link to the thread and try to understand how csc files are distributed and you will have a better understanding.  

I haven't been on csc chat in awhile as everyone has migrated to discord to the csc server.  Good things are happening soon with csc.

I will search here and find our old thread where we gave our responses to fixing the old wallet.   This thread is not the thread started by LeGonze but find that one and read that one, that may help.  It did not work in my case, but your case may be different.

The thread I was talking about was under Technical discussion.  See the 4th topic down, Casino Coin wallet won't open.  It has 45 posts that should give you a good idea of what to expect.  In my case, I took the hard drive that my casino wallet was on out of the computer, and replaced with another drive.  Then 6 months later I put the original hard drive back in the computer with my casino coin wallet.  When I pulled the drive out, I actually forgot that my wallet was on it.

When I replaced it 6 months later, it would not recognize the original install date and the icon would just keep spinning around.  And I had not exported my .keys file.  Anyway, that thread may give you some ideas.  Just be careful with the .keys file in your User folder.  

Register on discord and everyone will be glad to help out.  The new wallet is so much nicer.  I have already recovered the new 5.0 wallet twice with the 12 words and it works perfectly.  I recovered my desktop to my laptop, so I have the same wallet on both my desktop and laptop.  And then I have a second wallet on my android so I can move my coins from one wallet to another without going to an exchange.  

Good luck.
