Greetings,

I recently purchased an old game which I sued to play, and it broke my Windows 8 laptop. Don't ask how, I think it was something to do with the boot configuration when I installed it, as the computer needed to restart to complete the installation. I want to play this game so I got an old copy of XP and installed it on a Virtual Machine instead.

This so far works a treat. However, when loading my disk into my disk drive, the XP Virtual Machine is not picking it up that there's anything in the disk drive. Does anyone have any ideas how I can do this? Thanks for your time.
