CM reports that CD needs to be inserted in order to load the game (CM1)
*(This article applies to CM1 games only)*
**Problem:** Game reports that CD needs to be inserted in order to load the game.
**Cause/Solution 1:** The CD does have to be inserted into the CD Drive in order to launch the game. Once the game has loaded the CD can be removed. *(This does not apply to the digital delivery versions of CMBO, CMBB and CMAK.)*
**Cause/Solution 2:** Make sure that Windows is not trying to launch the game in Compatibility Mode. Right click on the shortcut used to launch the game, select the Compatibility tab at the top, make sure no boxes are checked on the Compatibility Properties page.
