Wasn't sure where to put this. . .

This is the message I sent to Blizzard about my problem, although I have had no response. Basically once I get to the cinematics the installation asks me if my warcraft CD is in the drive and doesn't install afterward. Is there a simple patch or fix?

Dear Blizzard,
I have loved Warcraft 3 and have had it since it first came out. But today I bought a new computer and it will not even install Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos. Your game is installed until it reaches a cinematic and then it fails to read something on the disc and asks if the disk is in the drive. I have tried several ways to get it to work including downloading Warcraft 3 online but I could not find anywhere you offered a free download for those who have problems like this and still have their cd key. When I canceled it let me play Warcraft 3 ROC but it wouldn't let me install Frozen Throne, because it said I had to download ROC first. I am very mad and irritated that I can not play Warcraft 3 on my new computer and am to the point of never buying another Blizzard game again, even though Diablo 3 is looking good. I would like to be able to install both ROC and FT. I have all of my specifications in this link for my new computer and I am running Windows 7 as my OS.

For that part, you'll need to register your own account at the battle.net webpage (and yes it's free to register). Then you use your CD-keys to gain the access to download the games.

Yea, I use windows 7 and I registered on battle.net for free, I put in my CD keys and it added RoC and TFT onto my account then I was able to freely download it, at high speeds and it installed fine mate.

Oh snap that probably would have worked too, but I figured it out. I just dragged wc3 from my laptop to a zipdrive and then the zipdrive to my desktop program files and it worked fast and fine. Thanks anyways guys lol I was freaking out about no warcraft.
