I want to order a particular book on Cd.  There are two listed, with two different ISBN's.  What is the difference and how can I tell which is unabridged?

Does it tell you how many CDs there are?  If one has more that's likely the unabridged. 

You might be able to check Amazon.

The more complicated to describe method:

If you can't figure it out any other way, order one.  There's a PM button on the order. Click the PM button so you are sending a PM to the lister.  BEFORE you actually send the PM, open another window to your account and cancel the order (you have a 1 hour grace period, but I think if you send the PM it cancels the grace period & puts the request through, so you need to cancel it before clicking send on the PM).  Now finish the PM and ask the lister if it is unabridged.

They both say 5 cd's.  I will see what I can find out on Amazon.  I figured that's what I'd need to do.

Thanks a bunch

You can also add an RC saying you only want Unabridged titles. I post a lot of audiobooks and frequently get this one.  Just make sure to only turn it on when ordering an audiobook. 

I can usually figure it out by checking Amazon. 

If they are both 5 cds then they are both either abridged or unabridged and just different issues of the same book.

You can click on the order button and PM the mbr without even placing the order. However, I would access Amazon or a library catalog to see if there is any difference between the 2 - maybe narrator?
