You are correct. Discover bought the Diners network and it is accept it in all Diners Club location in the US as well as Europe.
I actually tried to use my Disc in Europe this past August (Spain, Andorra, France) to no avail. I had contacted Disc before the trip to verify that I could use the card where I saw Diners Club advertized, but no one would actually take the card. It's possible that they simply didn't recognized it, and it would have worked if they tried (I can't remember if anybody actually tried to run it or just asked for another).
no offense but i would of just told them to run the freakin card

Oh! sorry to hear that. I used my Discover card in Europe, France, Spain, and Germany; however, I had to tell the person that is the same as a Diners Club because when they just saw the card they told me that they didn't accept Discover. In short, many businesses don't know that they can run it as a Diners Club.
