Try running the game in Windows 2000 combatility mode (assuming you are not in Windows 2000). Turn off any virtual drives you may have. Make sure the cd has not big scratches and is clean.

1) right-click on the game shortcut
2) select 'Properties' and click the 'Compatibility' tab
3) Check "run this program in compatibilty mode for: and select windows 2000
4) click apply and ok
5) run game

If you don't have a compatibility tab, search some place like www.google.com for: enabling compatibility mode for windows XP

If you don't know how to turn off virtual drives, then you don't have any, thus you don't need to turm them off.

Why does "the DVD version doesn't work"? Where did you hear this?

Ok. I have the DVD version and it works except for two very small errors, which I've posted about (though no one has answered...). Good luck with the cd version.
