Game reports that CD needs to be inserted in order to load CM but CD is in the CD drive. (CM1)

*(This article applies to CM1 games only)* **Problem:** Game reports that CD needs to be inserted in order to load the game but CD is in the CD drive. I have Windows XP/2000. **Cause/Solution:** Windows may have enabled "Compatibility Mode" for CM. This can occur if you upgrade to XP/2000 from an earlier OS of if you turned it on manually. To check this, please right click on the shortcut that points to CM. Select Properties and on the next page select the Compatibility tab. Now make sure none of the boxes are checked on that page. Click Apply or OK to close the window and then re-launch the game.
