Emkay1001 on the LucasArts support forums suggests making sure the CD is in the optical drive you installed the game from. If you had removable storage devices on lower letters than your optical drive (say, you had a thumb drive on D: and your DVD burner on E: and the burner was reassigned to D: when the thumb drive was disconnected), then the game probably doesn't see the CD in the correct drive. You have two options: either uninstall the game and reinstall so that the game now sees the CD from the proper drive (back up your .plt files, first, of course), or edit the Windows Registry (run regedit, look in the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\X-Wing95\1.0

and modify the "CD Path" data to the letter of your optical drive by right-clicking on "CD Path" and choosing "Modify", which will bring up the dialog where you can change the drive letter...it wouldn't hurt to change "Analyze Path", "Source Dir", and "Source Path" to reference the optical drive's letter, as well"). Note: I do not recommend mucking w/ the Registry if you don't know what you're doing.
