    I don't understand. You tried to install the expansion, and it asked for the expansion CD? That's what's supposed to happen. Are you talking about the Diablo 2 Play CD?

    Describe your problem in more details.
    Original Diablo II comes on 3 CD's - Install CD, play CD and movies CD. It is installed with 1st and 2nd CD's (3rd only if you chose full install). Played with CD 2 (Play CD) in the drive. Movie CD is required only when you to watch one of the movies and haven't made a full installation.
    Diablo II Expansion pack: Lord of Destruction comes on 1 CD - Expansion CD. It's installed from it, played with it, and both Expansion movies are also on it.
    To install LOD you need original D2 alrady installed. You insert Expansion CD, choose "instal Expansion" and continue.
    When LOD is installed, you always play with Expansion CD in the drive, not with old Play CD. No matter if your actual character is Classic or Expansion.
    Hope this made it all clear for you, DarkWater.

    Additionally, after you have started the installation of the expansion, you will be asked to insert the Classic D2 "Play CD" for a brief period of time, so make sure you have that handy.

    Forgot about that. I beleive, that's the problem - the guy switched CD to Play CD, when he was asked, and then wonders, why he is asked to insert Exp CD again.
