I recently purchased warcraft III (battle chest) and it won't work on my mac or my pc. When i try to launch it on my mac i simply get an error that won't launch it for me. On my PC it says I have to insert the cd even though its already in there. Is there a way i can fix it or do i simply have a bad copy of the game?

sounds like a bad copy, altho you can dl a no cd crack and see if it runs then. use alcohol 120% or some other program to get your virtual drives and what not. since you did buy the game and have a valid cd key, then it isnt illegal by any means

Up the irons
Check the disks using disk utility. Verify them to see if they are OK.

If all is ok do a fresh install.

If the problem is still happening you have a few options. One is just return them for new cds.

Plus what does the error say exactly? ARe you on an intel machine? or a ppc machine? are you running classic? or os x.

Is your computer installing the game with no problems?

I ran the disk utility and it the discs are faulty. I guess I will just return them. :/
