Those copy protection things, besides being highly annoying, often don't work very well... and frankly, I still fail to understand why people accept this kind of garbage. You've paid good money for it, so there is no reason to accept this behavior.

I've been installing NoCD-cracks on ALL copy protected games (currently I have one game on my box, ReVolt, where the copy protection was removed with the last official patch --- since it has redbook audio I now run it from a daemontools drive) since... well, forever. All my CDs are in perfect condition because of that (I take them out of the box, install, put them back into the box and never touch it again...), and I can just doubleclick the game, already playing while others are still looking for their CD :)

SCNR...

But Myrakh, what's to then stop you from lending the game to someone else, along with the NoCD crack? The main motive game developers force you to put the CD in to play a game is to ensure that people buy their own copy of the game if they think it's good.

Companies need money in order to continue bringing out more games. I have no problem if people use the NoCD on their own machine, but there's no way to regulate it, and (from a game developers POV) you can't believe it won't end up with 20 people playing the same game all installed from a single purchase.
 
if you have 2 disk drives, (cd and dvd or something like burner), try putting it in the other one. with many other games thats the only way it works for me.

It will still ask for the play CD when you install LoD, even if you install the full version of Classic.

....", not that classic's bad or anything", is what you meant to add on to the end of that sentence, right? :D

You might want to check out http://www.blizzard.com/support/?id=adt0273p, as it pretty much exactly what your getting. It's mostly about copying off some files from the CD.
