Windows 7: Game running on XP Mode doesnt see host CD-drive?

Game running on XP Mode doesnt see host CD-drive?


I have a game installed on XP Mode called 'Warcraft III'. When the game boots up it autodetects if there's a legitimate copy in the CD-drive.

When I check the 'My computer' in XP Mode it sees the drive fine and I can install software from it no problem.

After starting up this game it freezes on me. I have a hunch that the game itself cant 'autodetect' the cdrom thats in XP Mode.

any ideas on how to solve this or to troubleshoot getting the game running?

Thanks in advance.

Just after I posted this I realised something. I can still install the game in windows 7. Silly me.

Case close.
