Some software (Diablo II, as it happens) is complaining that it cannot find the "play CD" in the CD drive (It uses this as a protection mechanism.) I have the play CD virtually mounted with MagicDisk, not in drive D, which is taken by the physical CD drive, but rather in drive F. (Using Windows XP.)

How can I convince the software to see this virtual CD?

Just to note that the final DII patch removes the cd requirement – Journeyman Geek Jul 13 '12 at 2:24

One thing you can do as an alternative is register the key on your account, then you can download a fresh copy that does not require a CD or CD key to play

Second this! I Highly recommend doing this as well, since it allows you to have unlimited downloads of your legally registered Blizzard software. And you can recover your keys if necessary.... – Benjamin Schollnick May 22 '12 at 19:11
