I can't run Diablo under W98

I install Diablo( it is without any problem)
but when I want to play it says there is not Diablo CD,
even though it is in CD-ROM (i have installed it from it).

this is a common problem .ok next step is to put the disk on the harddrive first e-mail me at gward28@hotmail.com Ill send you a file to crack the cd .you will need to copy the Diabdat.mpq file
from the cd to your diablo folder (or a place on your hd).next
go to run type regedit ,go to folder called HKEY_local_machine >
SOFTWARE>blizzardentertainment>Archives   change the diablocd to
the folder you put the Diadat.mpq .(such as c:\games\diablo)then close the registry editor.
now unzip the file I'll be sending you into your diablo folder and run it .now you will be able to play .this is how I have to run this game as well it does the same thing to me it did to you
I own the cd and don't use it because of this. :~)

i have seen this before first try upgradeing your diablo to version 1.07. go to blizzard for the upgrade.

if this does not work I'll give you the next step.
(plus make sure the disk is clean just incase):~)

It was one of things I have tried at first, but it doesn't help.
I can't understand it. When I (installing)updateing it, it is using the CD without any problem. But when I want it to run,it says please insert diablo CD.
In W95 it works but when I install W98 it doesn't work.
