I have WC3 installed on one of my computers, but in order to play it, I need the CD in the drive. Unfortunately the CD was damaged by one of my kids (they won't admit which one did it!), but I do have a backup ISO image of the disk. I burned that to a CD, but that didn't work, so it looks like I will have to buy another disk. Is this correct, or will Blizzard send me a new disk if I can prove that the one I have now is damaged?

Hmm, help from blizzard may be a stretch..
I know we can't talk about ISO's, but just wondering why it didn't work...

Have you tried a "disc doctor" or any of the disc fixing ideas?.. Or is it "Damaged" as in someone stepped on and cracked it?
Prolly the easyest would be to buy a new one.
And if you want to try the "backup" again.. be sure you have a working one. :p

Yeah, the disk has a small footprint on it, and a line through the footprint (CD is cracked almost in half).

:D

It reminds me the CD game I lended once to a friend for a few weeks. When it came back, I just had to garnish it with some mozarella slices to have a pizza.

Ha! The miracle of superglue, some super-fine grade sandpaper, and PEANUT BUTTER!

I got the disk working again.... LOL I can't make a copy of it or install the game from the original disk, but at least WC detects that the disk is in the drive when I want to play!

I glued the disk halves back together with the superglue, sanded the "extra" down as best I could, then filled the gaps with a thin layer of peanut butter, and it worked!
