Thread: Diablo II - Not reading virtual drive?

  1. #1

    Default Diablo II - Not reading virtual drive?

    Is there a way that you can tell a program to specifically read from a virtual drive that Daemon tools created? I made an image of my Diablo 2 CD and I am trying to run it from the virtual drive. I have installed it and everything and it runs with the CD in, but just wondering if there is a way to make it specifically read from the virtual drive I set up with the play disk image. If I play without the CD in it says please insert CD.

    If you would have installed from virtual drive the registry key of the game would be set correctly. It's possible to get through the registry and set the drive letter, but i don't know the exact location for Diablo 2.

    I guess I'm asking why my play disk image isn't working. Without the CD in, it asks for me to put the CD in. Is there a way to run the game off of the CD image in daemon tools instead of using the CD itself?

    diablo 2 is old old old, so it probably has the silly thing of only working from the cd/dvd drive with the highest drive letter, its worth a shot at least... try and make daemon tools drive the 1st drive after your hard disks, see if that works...

    Disk Management console. Either right-click on My Computer, select Manage, then Disk Management, or go to Start -> Run and type "diskmgmt.msc".

    I'm not sure what it is supposed to look like or what I am supposed to do but this is what mine looks like.





    I'm trying to make drive Q (CD-Rom 2) my main one. In other words, that is where the diablo 2 play image is in daemon tools and I want the game to run off of that image instead of the actual play disk (which is currently in Drive F)

    Just right-click on the 'CD-ROM 0' ( Drive F: ), choose 'Change Drive letters' and change it to whatever you want (and is free). Then do the same to the DT drive and change it to F:

    Which program and settings did you make the image with... i just noticed, in the picture above, the image seems to be a different size than the disk?!
