Why can't you "explore your CD drive"? Right click on it and left click on
"open" from the drop down list.

Re: Diablo II
Will it let you browse the CD, or does it say "Disc is not accessable" or
"Insert Disc"?

Do other CD's work in the drive?

If Vista can't read a CD, maybe it's your CD drive. Got another computer you can check the CD on or another drive you can slap into your system?

The CD filesystem is a pretty basic Windows function, in fact I would wager that the routines for CD reading date back to the MS-DOS era.

If you can't read a CD it's either the CD, your CD drive, or the file system on your computer is messed up (System/chipset drivers).

Right-click the CD icon, choose explorer to open the CD. CDs in Vista work just like they do in DOS, Win1.x, 2.x, 3.x, NT, 9x, XP, 2k, 2k3, XP, SBE, SBE2k3, SBE 2k8, you get the picture. If you can't read the CD, see above paragraph.
