Here's a list of handy things to download, collected into one place. Add suggestions if you've got 'em!

  • RAVE is a collection of the various service and troubleshooting manuals

That's the version that includes all models but doesn't have a lot of the extras like accessory fitting instructions. I've got the UK CD version that only covers the P38, L322 up to 2005 and the Defender uploaded to my Google Drive here https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzxqPPypF5J5b1ZlU3RpMmVwanc. It's an iso file that needs to be burnt to CD but can then be copied to hard drive and run from there.

I have got a stack of stuff if you are going to make a reference library. What about copyright?

If anyone complains that I'm infringing their copyright then I will take steps to remove the offending links.

Gordon, OK, if you are happy with that I will have a sort out. I have got loads of stuff I have downloaded from the internet over the years.
Just to clarify ........ is it going to be uploaded onto this server? The stuff I have is resting on my pc hard drive. I can't post links as such and I don't want to use my Google drive.
It will use up space on your server but as it is for reference purposes it would be a welcome addition I think. Do you have space?
It will need organising into folders and possible editing by yourself. I have a lot of Landrover stuff which is not p38. I also have Microcat and the crack.

I will start by doing an iso of my Microcat CD. How do I upload it?

Probably the same one I've got here https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzxqPPypF5J5bEM2RnBrQy10MmM. That's an iso file complete with the all important readme file. It needs to be run on something running a 32 bit operating system, it won't run on 64 bit.

I'm good for ride heights, electronic troubleshooting manual and a TSB about a rocking front seat :o) If LR challenges copyright at this point in the "life" cycle they would just be consigning the last of the P38s to their final resting place. We enthusiasts are the only reason these babies are still alive, and they're hardly intuitive to work on (well, not to me, anyhow). Makes me appreciate my Defender more by the day

That one sounds interesting. Every so often I think I can feel my seat move ever so slightly but don't seem to be able to replicate it!

Not just Rangerovers, My old ML has the same problem.

I have got Microcat 2002 and also Microcat 2009.
2002 is the one I use as I can find my way around it. I have set up a virtual 32 bit XP machine on my 64 bit W10 pc to run it.
I haven't tried to run it with 32 bit W10. I assumed it wouldn't run.

Gordon, do you want copies uploading ? If so how?

If we can upload them to your server that would free up some space on my Google drive as it's almost up to the limit for free use and they keep prompting me to pay money for extra storage. I've got two further RAVE Cds covering other models if they could be of any use, one has a load of TSBs on it too.

Is that the single file one that popped up on RR.net? So it's just one huge pdf but is created from the US version that covers all models.

I have 983GB of OneDrive space going spare at the moment.

That should be plenty of room for all of these and would save the strain on Gordon's server/network connection.

No, it consists of 9 separate files:

1 Workshop Manuals
2 Overhaul Manuals
3 Electrical Troubleshooting Manuals
4 Owner's Handbooks
5 In-Car Entertainment
6 PDI and Maintenance
7 NAVTECH
8 Technical Brochure
9 Accessory Fitting Instructions

Just checked my hard drive and I have 5.4Gb of Landrover stuff, mostly p38. Most is docs but some is useful pics I have accumulated.

That looks like someone has turned the UK CD into a bunch of pdf files, exactly the same structure and content as the CD.

What was finally decided about having a download section?
I can download Rave from the site but that is about it. How do I upload stuff?

I guess we need to email attachments to Gordon?
