    Thanks to my sister, I have found my frozen throne disk to be hella scratched. My computer will recognize the disk, but wont do anything if I try to run one of the contained files. Should I find an iso and burn it or is there some way to recover the data? I just need to install it, thanks to the newly released no-CD patch from Blizzard. Since the game requires a CD key to be installed and a unique one to connect to Battle.net, I'm going to assume this is out of the 'warez, etc' category

    uhhh this falls into gray area, i believe its alright to ask the question technically.


    But for anyone to awnser the question, they would be breaking the rules.


    On a totally unrelated note, you should add my msn as i too like warcraft 3, spiked_u@hotmail.com.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I would say just download the ISO unless you can borrow a CD from someone else.

    As far as "grey area" goes, we do tell people to re-download their roms/isos when they have bad copies. This isn't much different. Just can't give links.

    Pirate it. If you have the CD key, just put that into whatever field when it asks rather than using a crack.
