    I have been giving CrossOver a test lately and I just recently found my old You Don't Know Jack games (1-3 and The Ride). Each game has the Windows and Mac (classic) version on the CD, but ONLY the Mac data is showing up on my MBP.

    I have created a mountable disk of the Windows data on my PC and then mounted as a CD w/Toast on my MBP and got through installation fine, but when I try to play it says that I need to insert the CD...what is going on there?

    How can I get to the Windows data to show up on my MBP so I can install through CrossOver (if it even will) off of the original disk? I have already tried showing hidden files and that doesn't work.

    I don't know this game, but it *sounds* like it's a cross-platform hybrid CD with both HFS (Mac) and ISO 9660 (PC) sessions on one CD-ROM. What's worse, it sounds like it's got some CD-based copy protection that requires the original CD!

    Two thoughts:

    1. Try loading it with the original CD in the drive?

    2. Try hunting around for a "No-CD" patch for it.
