Cd1 in the drive

Recommended Posts

Hi, I went for the boxed (CD) version of msfs 2020 and the CD1 has to be in the drive whenever I want to play. I a lot of you folks

can remember that the earlier version of ( I think Flight Simulator 2004) Microsoft Flight Simulator was configured to play like this

-keeping the cd1 in the drive and indeed there was no download versions so every body used to keep cd1 in the drive. But somebody

created a small line of code or program whatever you call it) which you place somewhere in the fs9 exe.file and the system would not

ask for the cd1. That is why I am wondering if any clever people have done anything this for msfs 2020. If anybody happens to find something to replace cd in the drive please share it

I understand you can create an ISO file of disc 1 so that you don’t have to keep the disc in the drive. I don’t know exactly how you do it though but no doubt someone else here will be able to help.
