A message keeps telling me to insert the correct CD and retry?

It sounds like your game is installed "compact' which means that the main files for the game are loaded on your computer's hard drive but other files, such as graphics that are only used occasionally, but still needed for game play, remain on the CD. Either insert the game CD in the drive or reinstall the game and look for a prompt asking you to choose between full or compact install, and choose full.

Under Windows XP, Directx 9, system asks for cd to be inserted, though it is already there. Mike. (Central Victoria, Australia)

Did you install the game from your first cd/dvd drive? If you have more than one that is. Some of the older games put the path of the cd as an actual location, so if you installed this from your G: drive cd/dvd and then added another bit of hardware like a harddrive, then the drive letters might have got changed. You could look at the games .ini file and see if there is any reference to cd paths and change it to reflect where you have it inserted. Just make sure you make a backup of the file before you make any changes just in case something goes wrong.
Star Wars Rogue Squadron had the same limitation where it would keep asking for the disc, so I had to just keep trying my other drives till I hit the right one.
Hope that helps.
