game wont launch

Ok, since the 1.10 patch I have had extreme issues with launching the game. Most of the time it fails to launch because of the cd check, which appears to be the culprit since the patch. On a few instances it can launch fine with no changes on my part. Blazzard has been absolutely useless in helping solve this issue. No cd cracks won't work for me as they fail to be recognized on Bnet as a proper version. I'm running win2k sp4 fully patched on a built system with an Asus a7s333 motherboard bios 1006, 48/24/48a plextor cdrw, soundblaster audigy, Gainward ti4200 video. I'm upgraded firmware on the cdrw and have also eliminated everything possible from the background that could possibly be affecting this. Anyone have a clue or have the same problems?

Have you tried reinstalling D2? Most major bugs I have come accross have been fixed by cleaning out all D2 content, save single player chars, and installing diablo fresh again. Make sure also you do not have any 3rd party programs D2 related, like cracks and hacks of the like. Not only is it a bad idea to have them in the first place, 1.10 doesnt work with any of the old ones.

I've reformatted and reinstalled twice just trying to fix this and nothing has worked. I am now trying Virtualdrive 8 and that is having the same issues the normal cdrom drive is having, so it must be a problem executing the cd check with the game.exe

I have a similar problem.

1.09 worked perfectly, but..

I can install D2 + LoD, start it and download the patch, no problems. But once 1.10 has been installed, I can't start LoD anymore. The CD spins up but nothing more happens and most of the times my system locks up completely, ie forcing me to reboot. Yeah, I asked Blizzard about it, but hey..It's Blizzard, so no it didn't work. Fun part is though, 1.10 beta worked, but this 'real' patch doesn't.

Same thing is happening to me..CD worked fine until A day or 2 ago, cd just spins now and it usually ends up with me rebooting the comp. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Ditto

I installed Diablo II and the expansion set last weekend and it quit working this morning. Everytime I try to launch it I get an "unhandled exception" error and my CD is not available until I re-boot. (the CD drive works fine until I try to launch Diablo II).

Any ideas, leverage w/Blizzard or patches greatly appreciated.
