Thread: CD-ROM drive error:Please verify that your Frozen Throne disc is in your CD-ROM drive

    Default CD-ROM drive error:Please verify that your Frozen Throne disc is in your CD-ROM drive

    I'm trying to get Warcraft 3 to run on Windows under Parallels, however, every time I try to run the game, I get this error:

    CD-ROM drive error: Please verify that your Frozen Throne disc is in your CD-ROM drive, then click on 'Retry'.

    If I try to run it under my mac, it runs just fine!

    I'm sure that the CD-ROM is in the drive, because my mac can run it just fine, and I'm sure that Windows under Parallels can run CD's, because when I insert the CD into the drive, under Windows in Parallels, the opening screen for the CD appears asking me whether I'd like to Play Warcraft 3, View Read-me, Options, or Exit Installer, so I'm sure there is no problem reading the CD's, but when I click Play Warcraft 3, that's when the message box with the error comes up.

    Hello,

    the point is that the program that verifies if your CD is the original one has some issues with virtualization technology. In a different words, the CD-ROM sees the disk but the program can't see that it is original. Unfortunately, it is the way it works.
    Please, contact Blizzard support.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I guess I was ill-informed by the Parallels features page because it notes that you can play Warcraft 3 on it. I guess they meant that you can install it just fine but not play it?

    Maybe they used a nocd crack to run the app with out a cd or dvd in the drive :)

    However, you can install the mac version on your system. Doesn't your install disk have the mac version? Mine does.

    Hello,

    the point is that technologically this game is supported and can be played from the Parallels VM, but there are license policy issues.

    If you are a owner of a legal game cd, please, contact Blizzard support and ask if you can use the game without cd protection.

    Not true. The problem is with Parallels as I have the same issue and if I run under VMWARE as an image it can identify the CD. For Parallels to just throw it over the wall and say contact the MFGR is lame.
