    RAVE CD Manual download and use for dummies.

    Land Rover RAVE CD Manual: download and use for dummies.
    I've sent out Rave CDs and linked people to the downloads many times over the years, so I thought it was time to write a simple guide on where to get it online and how to easily use it. This could be a forum sticky somewhere since it comes up often enough.

    DOWNLOAD:

    RAVE CD VEHICLE-SPECIFIC: Download the full .iso/.nrg (image files of the CDs): http://green-oval.com/joomla/index.p...d=13&Itemid=29

    RAVE CD Multi-CD: contains all vehicles, may be missing some information as it’s only slightly larger than one of the individual images: http://personalgeeks.com/lrdisco/ , thanks to adriatic04 at Dweb for hosting. This is the RAVE image that I use, it’s worked great for years…haven’t found anything missing.

    RAVE CD Multi-CD MIRROR
    : This is one .iso split into 6 .rar files which will need to be combined (extracted) using WinRAR or a similar program before mounting the image. You also will have to wait between downloads without an account. (PITA, avoid if possible, but they’re here if needed):

    USE:

    [These steps below are for a Windows based OS. If you’re running OS X, you’ll have to find a disk emulation program, or just burn the image to a disk using Disk Utility.]

    WITH CD: To use the CD images, you can simply burn them to a disk with any disk burning program. I like to use...

    -InfraRecorder - http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/?page_id=5
    or
    -ImgBurn - http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

    WITH CD EMULATION (w/o CD): To use the CD images without burning them to CDs, we must mount the images on virtual drives. I personally like

    -Daemon Tools - http://www.disc-tools.com/download/daemon

    Install Daemon Tools Lite and run it. It will show up as a small running icon on the right side of your taskbar.

    Right click-->Virtual CD/DVD-ROM-->Device: 0-->Mount Image (find where you’ve stored your image file and open it)

    The program should autorun the image, but if it doesn’t, you can find it under “My Computer” as if you’ve got a disk in your CD-ROM drive. The RAVE program runs through Adobe Acrobat 4.0 on the disk, you won’t need Acrobat installed to use RAVE.
    If you’re unable to get this to work or want to try an easier option, you may be able to simply extract the image file and run Rave.exe, but there is no guarantee that this will work as I haven’t tried it.





    I really hope this helps everyone, if you have any questions feel free to send me a PM.

    You could also, open the ISO file with Winrar and extract to any folder like you would do with Winzip.

    Sorry to say, you haven't dumbed this down quite enough for those of us with very little computer expertise...I can't get this to work no matter what I try. I've downloaded and installed the RAVE manual and can't get it to open, burned it to CD and can't get it to open, downloaded and installed Daemon and about all I can seem to do is look at the pictures in a slideshow...I'm truly lost here.

    Dan, once you have loaded the image file in Daemon tools, open My Computer and double click on the new RAVE "drive". In the first folder there should be a file called RAVE.exe. Double click on that and the app should start. Here's where my RAVE.exe sits on my comp.

    Okay, that sort of worked...I did wind up finding it, though it's only labled Rave and not Rave.exe.

    Thanks Brenton...!

    Thats it, you just have your file explore set to not display extentions (which is the windows default). Just double click that file.

    Simpler Steps for PC Users

    Dan can rebuild engines, but he doesn't know Windows as well.

    All good Dan - I will trade skill sets with you since I don't know how to rebuild engines (atleast not yet).

    Anyways, instructions can be simpler. Good to see the details and options (Keptin wrote), but for others (here's what I emailed to a friend who is a lil Windows challenged) - condensed version:

    Pic 1: Visit, select, and dowload the Rave file for your LR vehicle: http://green-oval.com/joomla/index.p...d=13&Itemid=29

    Pic 2: Save the file in your computer folder

    Pic 3: Launch the CD writing software of your choice and point it to the Rave file. Insert blank CD or DVD disk and follow the prompts directed by your CD writing software.

    I use Nero Express.

    FYI: Visit Nero to downloand their free trail software: http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html; You can burn as many CD/DVDs copies within the 7 day trail period.

    Pic 4: Takes time to complete the writing process, but when completed, you'll have a directory that looks like this.

    Launch the green oval Rave icon and you should be good to go (surf the index and jump into the details).

    THe only question that i have is when i open the engine repair manual it says 2000 is it the same for the 1996 P38A.
    The reason that i ask is that on disk 2 the cover says for p38.
    Will this work for me?

    Thanks
