Civilzation 3 Gold not functional (Securom error 3000)

Description

Although the game installs flawlessly (Ubuntu - Hardy Heron host, Windows - XP Professional SP3 client), when I try to run the game, it instantly throws the following error:

--- Civ3Gold

A required security module cannot be activated. This program cannot be executed (3000).

Please have a look at  http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=module&c=3000 for further, more detailed information.

I have the original install media in the drive, one of my two optical drives within Vbox (3.1.6 r59338) set to look at my laptop's optical drive (passthrough enabled), so I don't feel I should be getting this error (which I would expect if I had made an ISO of the disc and was trying to mount that instead).

The media does work natively in Windows, but I do not wish to dualboot and swap to native Windows every time I want to play this game.
