    Hey guys, I'm after the genuine DVD workshop manual, i think the part number is VY202005

    although i think the VZ one covers everything from vt-vz.

    i dropped into holden, happy to pay the money, they said they cannot get this dvd any more as its too old. maybe they just didn't want to bother with me i dunno.

    if anyone has one they would like to sell, legit copy or a copy, id like to hear from you.

    have one... covers VY and VZ
    and the legit one also cover the 6ltr engine in late VZ

    you need a legit one... as they are licenced and will not work
    without INFOMEDIA providing you with the software key

    thanks for your reply, i understand they are licensed. but if anyone was "done" with their copy the license is transferable i believe.

    Ive got that VY one, it is a legit genuine one from infomedia

    it only covers VY series 1 and 2/WK and V2 monaro

    might consider selling it, keep in mind it cost me $300-400 when i bought it

    I thought I'd just post this up.....as I have one of these that I was going to sell, I contacted infomedia to see if the registration is transferable....

    Apparently they have stopped dealing with Holden, as holdens have there own system now-so they no longer generate the user codes need for registration

    The guy on the phone said the disc won't work, but I'll try to install and register it, when I get home- see what happens,

    Fingers crossed

    well, thanks so much for making the phone call, and second letting me know before i forked out for a cd...

    this is not only a problem for me. but also everyone who currently has the dvd...

    how on earth could they not offer codes for a product they sell... eventually, no-one will have an original copy...

    hopefully someone has managed to remove the protection on one of these disc, so that the information is accessible into the future.

    not too sure... is it a genuine holden manual? or a scanned aftermarket one? does your manual have any kind of protection on it? like does it need a code to work? or just works?

    Just had a quick look. It was put together by a company called Melbourne Warehouse . It has password security but that is so you can't extract pages and print them .it has a total of 493 pages and is a total of 108 MB . It doesn't need a code.

    I have the VT-VX service DVD, it won't install on the computer but you can access the information by viewing the files on the DVD and then click on MAIN MENU.

    I suppose I could do that but bear in mind it only covers VT I, VT II, VX I, VX II, VU, WH Statesman and Caprice. It is 586MB. PM me to make arrangements.

    this DVD thing is driving me crazy... I'm trying to do some interesting. unusual mods to my VY... and i know the information is in that DVD....

    how could someone (info media) who once sold a product, no longer support it... surly they can release the information... but i guess, its still holden intellectual property... but holden will not even give it out... we must crack this software and make it available for all!

    I wouldnt really call the discs software.. really. But they do kinda navigate the bazillion files.

    Probably no longer gets sold because they no longer have access to generating users for it, or Holden ceased providing licenses ect.

    so would i be right in saying that, all the file (PDF's) are easy to access on the disc without any kind of license or code through windows explorer but....

    these files are almost impossible to and find what you need without the front end UI to navigate the database of files?

    Yeah, I can open the PDFs happily on my PC (Not on a disc, was installed from a disc though).

    Although, its not exactly easy to navigate anyway through the folders/files on the PC.. which is why the front end UI is there. Theres also a vehicle search option to search vehicle which brings up its options from factory, engine serial ect.

    well... not having too much luck... starting to think these disc are going to fade into black. disappointing that holden cannot offer a replacement.

    i spoke to spare parts today at the local dealer... they were really good, and knew exactly what CD i was talking about, they said they would sell a copy of the cd without a second thought if it was still available. but they do no have access to the cd's any longer...

    hopefully a unlocked copy will surface one day... freedom of information or something should come into play haha
