I recently downloaded dosbox v0.72 to run a AD&D game, Gateways to the Savage Frontier; But when I try to load a saved game, rather than accessing the .dat file that I can see in the SAVE folder of the game, it asks to "insert disk 3 in C: drive". I installed the game from the original 3.5" floppy disk that I dug out of my attic and there is no disk 3 that they could be refering to. Any help on how I might be able to resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Weird that 'insert disk3', works fine for me, never had that message.
BTW you should not only have savgam*.dat files but also chrdata*.sav files in your save folder.

What's your OS?
Mount lines?
[Edit]
Could you post what's in your game.cfg? You can open that file with notepad.
