i have seen this before first try upgradeing your diablo to version 1.07. go to blizzard for the upgrade.
www.blizzard.com/DP/patches.shtml
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.

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. :~)
