For my shortcuts I just leave the disk in the drive. Using a file manager, in my case "file manager"
, access the E:drive, or what ever drive your CD is, look for IE icons with the name of your manual ie: 560SEL Shop..., M117 engine, Owners Manual etc. Simply right click and send it as a shortcut to the desktop. Now just leave the disk in the drive and double click on the appropriate icon on the desktop, no movie - no music - no wait. For the 108 manual I do like to listen to the intro music.
EDIT: My typo is fixed, Ouch!!!
. Thanks for the heads up.
