    Options :

    1. Buy one of those cd repair kits.
    2. Use toothpaste on scratch
    ( Use the abrasive white kind ) and rub in circles from the inside out. then buff out with a soft - non- scratching cloth. ...maybe kleenex, lens cloth, etc. Do not use a coarse paper towel or kitchen rag!
    3. Buy new D2x cd.

    A disc doctor might work, but if it doesn't Blizzard will replace the scratched disk for $10. You have to mail the damaged disk to them and wait for them to mail you back a new one. Go to Blizzard.com for the details. I did it and it took about a week.( I saw a new Diablo at Costco for $15) I don't know of any place to download what you need. I believe you have to install the whole game from a clean disk in order for it to work correctly. If you have a friend with a clean disk, maybe you can use it along with your CD key.

    O.O ... I bought mine at Cosco ... works fine.

    There are programs called loaders - I am not sure where you would find them but I can tell you if someone does direct you to a site with a loader program (enables you to play without the disk in the drive as long as your cd key is valid) be very very careful. I would not recommend it as it is a 3rd party download and could contain trojans or other nasty tag alongs. You are far better off either buying a whole new disk or sending your broken on to Bliz for replacement.

    Safest bet is to use the Blizzard $10 program. Another option is to use the CD-key with install CD's from a friend nearby. Don't forget that you need TWO CD-keys of your own (D2C and D2X). Living in Europe, my most useful option is the buddy with CD's... After that, you can use a loader/nocd'er to play afterwards.

    These aids are mostly legal, since the CD-key provides the Copy-protection and your motivation is (or should be) to preserve the CD for as long as possible.

    Good luck with pasting/mailing/lending/patching.
