I bought this DVD. It has both the XT225 & XT250 factory manual (US models) in a fairly High-Res PDF version.

Manual photo's are reasonable clear for a $20 copy.

However, note that windows 10 will not read the older DVD format used, even with third party software such as VLC.

my old windows 7 machine had no problems reading it.

I acquired 2 XT225 service manual DVD's with the '02 I bought last year. With Linux Mint 20.x on my PCs I have no problem reading either of these discs. But like you I tried reading them on a Windows 10 machine that recently came my way for service and updating, and while the original disc read alright the disc copy didn't. All I can say is Windows 10 is 'strange that way', sometimes cooperating with things people want to run or view, especially in older formats, yet often throwing up roadblocks that for all intents and purposes shouldn't be there. Just another of the 'joys' of using Windows these days it seems..

I have a really old (2004) Windows XP laptop that will read anything. I keep it for that purpose. It also runs software that goes all the way back to Windows 95. But it cannot be used online. It has no WiFi, and it didn't work when I tried connecting it with an ethernet cable. Back in 2004 I use it with dial up internet. Windows has used the same architecture from Windows 95 through Windows 7. Windows 10 is a whole new thing. It has nothing in common with any earlier versions of windows except some of the graphics, which were left to help users transition from earlier versions. It is much more like a cellphone operating system.

I have a PDF copy on the hard drive of my XP computer, as well as on a flash drive, and I have a home made paper copy. I bought an XT that Az4x4 had sold to someone here in the Phoenix area, and this guy had actually printed out an entire PDF copy. He must have used $100 worth of ink.

PDF can be used on Windows 10. Adobe makes a Windows 10 compatible version, and it will read all PDF files, no matter how old.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
1994/2001 custom built XT225 with a ton of aftermarket parts.

One day, when it's too hot to venture outside, if you want to see what your old laptop is actually capable of install Linux Mint on it along side of Windows XP and prepare to be amazed! It's easy enough to do, and doesn't take long, so If this is of interest let me know and I'll post (or PM) easy to follow step by step instructions that'll walk you through the process Jerry..
