Help me relive my pinball addiction

I decided to take my old G3 iMac down from the attic and play some old games. The old computer still works great, and yet there was a problem...

I wanted to play Fantastic Journey, an awesome old pinball machine simulator I used to be addicted to (anybody know it?) So I plugged in my old iMac and fired up good ol' OS 9, and that's when I encountered problem no. 1: The iMac's CD drive appears to have conked out. So I plugged in my trusty external BluRay drive and inserted my original Fantastic Journey CD. I wasn't sure that would work, what with the ancient OS and the new optical drive, but it actually did; the CD loaded fine and the volume appeared on the desktop. But then came problem no. 2: upon launching the game, a dialog box insisted: "Please insert your Fantastic Journey CD." Somehow, the game only reads the internal optical drive and ignores the external USB drive.
So, does anyone know a way around this?
