Diablo® III

Not reading CD WTF!

Placed DVD into my DVD-rom and nothing happens it appears that my PC is trying to read the CD *getting the mouse icon with the CD next to it* and auto-play doesn't pop. Checked My CPU and it doesn't show a CD in my drive. Placed different games into said DVD drive and they pop instantly. Blizzard WTF?! I know I can DL a digi-copy after registering my CD-Key, but I bought a physical copy to use said copy now I have to wait for it to download the full game while I hold the box in my hands... this is effed up.

Same with mine, but it's the computer not the CD. I put the cd into another computer and it detected it right away.

Attach the CD key to your account and download it from battle.net

LOL - You must be made of nails to withstand those adverse conditions. If you can win walmart, inferno shouldn't be a problem for you.

You guys may be using an older drive that doesn't support the disc's security (ie SafeDisc/SecuROM). Swap in a newer drive real quick and see if that doesn't fix your problem.

Security has always hindered the customers more than their intended demographic. Not sure why they keep using those methods.
