    Diablo 2 download prob

    Hi all, I have had Diablo 2 on my old comp, but everytime i try to load onto my new computer it comes up wth the following error.

    Set up cannot read a required data file.d2data.mpq Error 0x00000017 Data error ( cyclic redundancy check )

    Can anyone help with this? I have installed Warcraft and Starcraft successfully.

    Cheers

    your cd's might be scratched or corrupt

    try this

    create a battle.net account
    https://us.battle.net/login/en/

    pick on account management, add game
    add your d2 and lod keys

    download game clients for d2 and lod

    to get your new 16 digit game keys pick on account summary, then diablo 2 or lod

    install d2 then lod with your new keys (the keys are tied together, only one of each can be on bnet at a time)

    Yeah, I was thinking CD was scratched up if not a direct download type file. Didn't know Bnet offered downloads for the game =)

    Yes, it's very handy. Just be sure to register your legitimate CD keys on your account. It's really nice for those times when you misplace your discs or CD keys (flimsy Battle Chest CD jackets anyone?). It makes falling off the D2wagon that much easier. . .
