-------------------------------------------
Hello! Stay awhile and listen!

I am planning to play Diablo II on LAN at Easter, and have played Diablo 1 in a week or something to be done with it before the LAN starts. But when I got to level 8 in the dungeon (I think it was level 8) I suddenly got this error message: Please instert the Diablo CD "(or something in like that). I checked my disk, which had received some scratches. I tried to polish it, but get the same error message. When I press "Cancel" instead of "OK" I get the following message (forgive the poor quality):



I then borrows a friends (almost) flawless CD, but the same thing happens again. How can I fix this? If the only option is to reinstall, it is possible to retain previous save games? If yes, how?

To fix this issue i would reinstall but to retain your save files goto your diablo directory. It should be in your C drive. Go in and take out or copy the save file for your character. The file should be multi_#.sv replace # with a number. It could also be single_#.sv if it was single player. I suggest taking all of these files and copying them to somewhere else while reinstalling then putting them back after it has reinstalled.
