My downloads won't show! I put the downloads in the addons folder, and I click play on left 4 dead 2. I Check the little box that haves the name, of my download on it, But when I play the game, It's not there. /: I never have this problem till now. I don't know if Its, The download file, or Left 4 dead 2. The downloads are from here and I am using the VPK download.
I changed the download file to winzip, But that didn't do anything to help X.X
So, I am really lost with this one and I need help

Should I just re install left 4 dead 2? and steam?

Try installing the VPK files manually.

So, unpack them form the ZIP/RAR and copy then into the left4dead2\addons folder.

That should do the trick!

I am almost certain that the add-on support is now automatically downloaded to your machine... check to see if you have the add-on support installed. Steam, Library, Tools, look in the list for Left 4 Dead 2 Add-on Support and see if it is installed yet. If not try to install it and then try installing your VPK files. I've found just extracting from my unzipping program to my addons folder usually works most of the time... however for a few of them I had to manually drop the VPK file into my Addons folder. Also, I would double check to make sure you do not have "two" addon folders. Here is my path that I use as it may be helpful to you. Please note that yours may NOT match my exactly, but it should help :) C:\Users\username\Documents\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons

I did not have, Add-on support. So, I just downloaded it, but its still not working. I'm thinking its because of, My Hard drive? I put my left 4 dead 2 in there So, Now It's like (FreeAgent GoFlex drive (J:) _Back up-/C_/Steam/steamapps/common/left4dead2/addons

Or, Am I just not using the Add-On support right?

The add-on support should be automatic. I am just thinking the game itself is not finding your VPK files once you put them into your add-ons folder. I am seeing your directory is as follows.

Steam/steamapps/common/left4dead2/addons

However, mine is
Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons

Take note that I have a "left 4 dead 2" directory then within that I have left4dead2, and inside that folder is my add-ons. Double check yours to see if you have that double. If you do happen to have that double and you do NOT have the addons folder like have shown above ... go ahead and make a new folder in that directory called addons and drop a few of the downloaded vpk files into the new folder, restart the game and see if they show up. To make sure you're looking in the correct area go to the game main menu, extras, add-ons, and you will see a list. Example if you downloaded Questionable Ethics 1.2 you should see it there and it should have a check-mark next to it to make it active. If you see it listed, but not check-- just check it so the game will use it.
IF it doesn't work please delete the folder you made as it wasn't helpful anyway.

I usually do NOT have to restart my game to get the newly added campaigns to show up, but others I know have to restart their game. Why? I honestly do not know, but I would suggest restarting your game after you add a new VPK file just to be sure it is being caught by the game.

Hey dude, I'm having the same problem and I know other people who are having this problem. So it must be a common thing. If someone can show us how to fix it the would be great.

make sure you don't have 2 or more addons per same item/character/weapon enabled at the same time, they will conflict.
