A couple of days ago I brought the Toyota service manual SC0582EB – for a 2008 model Troopy, on a CD, from my local Toyota dealer. I have the latest quad core computer with Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 9 but it won’t run this CD. Tried it on an older computer (still up to spec with the CD) but it still won’t run. The Toyota dealer said if I can’t get to run, they will refund my money. They also said that they are going to stop selling these manuals as they are too much trouble. I don’t want my money back – I want a functioning service manual – has anyone had trouble running this CD? If so, did you find a solution?

It the same with the 200 CD

It's a while now but I think one way to fix it is to right click on it and run it as an administrator and in XP compatibility mode.

The other way is to go into the directory and click on the index page with IE.

You can get it to work but that's as good as I can remember sorry.

Thanks Boobook,
Toyota’s service department can’t help as they are trained to sell and instruct on the use of vehicle parts – solving compatibility problems on computer programs is not their field.
I can look at the folders on the CD – they contain thousands of files.
Many of them PDF files showing different diagrams and repair instructions.
Can’t find an IE file.
Also tried running as administrator in XP but to no avail.
Thanks for your info.

The solution to making the Toyota SC0582EB Service Manual’s CD function.
There is a hidden folder on the CD.
To find it - go to Windows Explorer, Folder Options, View, and go to Advanced Settings – chose Show Hidden Files and Folders.
Open the hidden Contents Folder on the CD and click on File index3

Now why didn’t Toyota know that?
If I was an unscrupulous individual, I could take a copy of the CD and then take Toyota’s CD back for my refund.

Glad you figured it out. I'm thinking that now maybe you should find a way to rip the disc onto your computer or external hard drive, and then make sure it's in some universal format (pdf or whatever) so you don't run across problems in the future.

Yep Pebble - CD is copyrighted but not protected.
The files now reside on my hard drive.
