Same here... It's annoying the crap outta me. Apparently there is a fix where you go into internet options in control panel, click the connections tab and then click on the LAN settings button below then deselect the 'Automatically detect settings' checkbox... I tried it but it didn't work. Let me know if it does for you guys...

He's talking about INSTALLING, not DOWNLOADING.

Mine is uber slow as well, 4% in almost 2 hours... If this is all decryption stuff they'd better never done that just for people not playing a couple days earlier...

I hope it gets done by tomorrow afternoon (unlikely at this rate). I want to play on my day off.

If its taking to long...some of you are downloading the whole 7.62 gb game file...shouldnt be taking that long at all...no more than 20mins on a 1500kbs speed internet to download and be played..!

Heh I don't mind. I started my install and I'll let it install while I go to work.

I'll be back in 12 hours so hopefully it's done by then right? ^_^

I was having the same problem. I'm running on 64-bit Windows 7, on a quad core w/ 16GB of RAM and a 24x DVDR, so it's impossible it's an under-spec PC. Probably the same for most of you.

One thing I did that seems to have sped it up, was I started to think maybe I should copy the files to the HD and try installing from there. I did this while the game was installing. I figured since it appeared to be reading the drive very sporadically, this wouldn't present a major problem.

Well, when I did that, it said it would take 17 min to copy the file. I figured rather than wait 17 min for the files to copy, I'd be a little more patient on the install, so I cancelled the file copy. When I went back to check on the installer, the percentage started ticking up MUCH faster than before.

Give it a shot and see if maybe it helps... Just kind of poking in the dark here, as I'm sure most of you are as well. So to summarize: while the install is running and you're watching the grass grow, start copying all the files on the DVD to your HD somewhere, let it start copying for a minute or two, then cancel. See if that speeds things up for you at all.

I'm glad I decided to go to work today instead of staying home for Diablo.

I think I would have been driven insane watching the slow install and the inability to get in to the servers...

It'd take a little longer than that.
Closer to 85 minutes at a constant 1.5MB/s actually.

The slow installation is probably due to your disc-drive , i had the same problem ( slow install ) on blizzards starcraft II ( took an hour to install ) and have the same problem with diablo III.

I looked around a bit and it seems my disc-drive has problems reading the dvd's on full speed due to the disc protection on their games.

Dont think there are any fixed for it. I can only recommend that you download the game files and install the game from those files on your HD. It should speed up your installation.

Mine took a good hour and a half I think, but it finished ok. Good luck once you get it installed though.
