Music problems with older games

Hello, guys. I have just registered after I have discovered this forum.
I have a problem (which for me is a big one although nobody else seems
to take notice): Older games which play their ingame music from cd, play
it fine for one time and then they stop. If you want to bring it back
you have to restart the game (save, quit, restart). That is annoying!!!
I have noticed this in the following games (there must be more):
Galactic Battlegrounds, The Settlers 3, Cultures, Cultures 2. While in
Galactic Battlegrounds the music lasts for about half an hour, in the
other games the respective titles for that mission last only for
minutes. The cd player should then repeat the same music. That's the way
it always worked (since Windows95!).
Does anyone know of a way to reenable this repeat function? It would be
so great, because this destroys the atmosphere of these games in an
unbearable way!(No, copying the files to mediaplayer and then starting
this out of the game is no viable solution, in my opinion.)

Re: Music problems with older games
This is because the later versions of Directx are only suited for later
games.
