Warcraft 3 startup probs - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Questions.

Are you on a Hp or Dell??

Do you have any other Dvd/Cd-Rw drives you can swap out and try. I remember my hp wouldn't recognize wc3 sometimes. Or A Cd/Dvd in general.


If you still can't get it. Keep Polishing that CD and it'll work

I just went through all this about a month ago when I had to reinstall Roc and Tft Both Cds would Error out on desktop.

I got it working, it was a little bit of both issues (hardware and cd). I went under device manager and uninstalled my cd/dvd reader and restarted my computer and then I cleaned the disk really well and now in books correctly 90% of the time. I still need help crating a virtual drive. I'm sorry I'm really nooby with software..I am better with hardware issues. Which program to use to make a virtual drive? All the free ones I tried were not able to replicate the disk although I do have all the files on my hard drive now. They wouldn't let me import the program files, only the pictures, movies, etc. to a virtual drive. Thx for all the help!!

If you apply the latest patch from Blizzard, you no longer need the CD to play the game.

Here is the full 1.22 patch for USA.
