I have all the Diablo II files from the cd. I own the game. I want to install it from the files, 2 of my disks are to scratched to read. When i try to run the setup file it says insert disk 1. Is there any way to install it without having to put in the disks.

Please dont flame me saying its a cracked or that crap. It doesnt help.
And i cant use iso files so that option is out.

ISOBUSTER may help in reading your scratched disks.
It's not completely free, but sometimes the free functions are all that you need to recover the files.

there are a few tricks to fixing a scratched CDs. there are different compounds out there, as well as home remedies. Ive heard good things about ISOBUSTER, but if worse comes to worse, couple things ive tried, is waxing it (auto wax) wipe on, wipe off, just like you were waxing a car. Ive heard of people wiping peanut butter on, the wiping off and freezing overnight. Ive never tried the latter, so use at your own risk, but the auto wax has worked for me in the past.

I have the game as well and wanted to install it on a machine with no optical drive.  I have an account at Blizzard for my WoW and Diablo 3 and for each of their games they have a downloadable version of their installer.  Once registered you can download the installer for each game you have registered.You can download as many times as you like to install on different computers, but can only play one instance at a time, of course. In other words you cannot download on two differnt computers and then have a friend play on one while you play on the other.  That won't work.  Each copy of the D2 game and the LOD expansion have their own CD keys.  I tried to register the CD keys on their site but it wouldn't take.  I contacted Blizzard and asked what I should do to get the download from their site. They had me take pictures of the CD's showing the keys in the picture and attach to my service ticket for them to review.  They registered the keys for me and I was then able to download the game.

 

Buddy215's suggestion is worth looking into, too, since the game is very inexpensive these days.
