Murderer Hugo Rich has failed in his latest appeal, this time to get legal materials to prepare for a High Court challenge against his conviction for gunning down a Melbourne security guard 11 years ago.

The former stockbroker, who will be in his 80s when he becomes eligible for parole, wants access to a CD containing legal resources he wants to use to challenge Barwon Prison's decisions about his treatment in custody, as well as for his appeal.

The Court of Appeal on Tuesday rejected his bid to gain access to the CD and his summons seeking orders against prison general manager Brett Ryan.
