Stupid music and cd drive issue

Does anyone experience a temporary game lockup when entering new areas if your CD drive is idle? You end up having to wait a few seconds as your CD drive starts whirling fanatically.

I think it may have to do with the new music loading. Its really stupid. I have to resort to turning music off but this diminishes the quality of the game. Is there any fix?

if you do a full install or copy the mpq files to your d2 install folder it wont need to read them from the drive

There are one or two .MPQ files uncopied to the HDD during installation. Simply compare the installation folder to the CD and paste them in. You'll still need the disk during initial startup, but never after that.

awesome, thanks guys. I did the full install but those mpq files you guys mentioned must be the reason.

Works like a charm!
