cd will not run

  rocketbob 12:31 PM 22 Feb 12

i have just brought a cd for a workshop manual for a van, when i put into the cd/dvd drive it does not run and i have ticked the autorun box for that drive

Does it show up in Windows Explorer? And if it does, is there a 'start.exe' file or similar that you can double click on?

If when you Explore the contents of the CD you can't find a 'start.exe' file, what files can you see?

Lotvic: I sense from what the OP said, nothing at all is showing in Explorer.

Rocketbob: if other CDs and DVDs work OK in the drive, I suspect you have a faulty one. Contact the eBay seller and ask for another one. If for some reason he/she won't play ball, raise a dispute.

Markd71: in the interests of balance, I should say that I've done 400+ transactions on eBay, with only two problems - both of which were resolved by eBay/PayPal to my satisfaction.
