Windows assumes a cd is hfs

I have a game on a CD that is for windows and mac... the problem is when I put it in the macbook running windows xp, the computer only shows the Mac files and says its a HFS format... if I put it in a windows machine it shows the Windows files... what do I need to change so the macbook will stop reading the disk as a Mac format and read it as a windows?

Are you running Windows natively on your MacBook? That is, are you running Windows from a Boot Camp partition or are you using it in a Virtual Machine such as Parallels or Fusion?
If running Windows from a VM, it's likely the game setup is being confused and thinks it's being executed from OS X. Booting Windows natively (Boot Camp) the game would not "think" it's being run from HFS.
