You shouldn't have patched it. If you still have the original d/l file of Civ Complete, reinstall it. Complete (and gold, for that matter) come fully patched. No need to apply any patches found on the net. You might be able to uninstall the patch.
Should another patch come out, you'll want to contact the people who sold you Civ Complete. They should have a special patch from Firaxis that will allow your version to patch.
also found that a lot of places were distributing the UK version of civ 3.
Your civ3ptw127f.exe file : what size is it?
I have: 11757746 bytes, which is giving me the Insert CD issues.
Am D/L'ing a 7.31 MB version from www.uk.atari.com - this may solve my problem
if you got the "complete" version then you didn't need to patch.

From looking around its a pretty good web site.
Bottom line is that if you still can't play the game after following thier advice you can either contact atari and see if they will send you a modified exe (highly doubtful after all this time) or go back to the vendor that sold you the game and ask for your money back. If that fails then check with your credit card company. they may be able to do a charge back.
I'm really suprised that they didn't release a patch that did away with the "cd check".

You payed $30 for Civ 3 when you can buy the new civ 4 for like $5 more, you can pick up civ3 in bargain bins for a pittance these days, safe to say you got ripped off.
Well thanks, [bleep]. That helped me out a lot.
I got the cd problem fixed. Thanks a bunch.
