Windows game can work fine with CD music too on Windows 10+: see on Vogons forum (search for topics like 'Game will ONLY work with CD in drive', 'MCI cdaudio not repeating (looping) on modern Windows systems' etc.).
Looks like the only problem is no music loop while playing, unless you use some wrappers like dxwnd and rip audio to MP3/OGG

@JP @DDD THANK YOU for this! I've literally never been able to hear the sound effects actually work on a modern system.

running this game modern PC's is frustrating. ISO is broken and will not work no matter what I do!. the RIP version on the other-hand is playable but it has performance and sound issues. it runs in windowed mode but I still experienced some framerate dips, you can play with resolution and screen size but it sadly doesn't really fixes the problem.
the biggest problem the game currently has is the audio as there is non, not even sound-effects. there is a way around fixing the sound effects. if you change the Properties of PITFALL.EXE to windows 95 or 98/me, in the game settings you can enable the sound effects and it will work but it will crash the game due to outdated DLL file, there's replacement DLL file from a site "" just download it and replace old DLL file with the new one and the sound effects will work without crashing but it only works if the properties of this game is on windows 95 or 98/me, above that it will not work.

now the music is by the time I'm writing this borderline impossible, it needs to run directly from the CD (which is redbook audio and it wasn't implemented properly for post windows 95 PC's) currently it's impossible on Win 10 64x (unless you tweak you're computer to oblivion) to make the audio work with modern pc's.

'Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure' on windows needs to be restored properly to work modern PC and i hope Activision will finally get off their high horses give this IP to Steam or GOG already!

Iso says that it's corrupted. Is there any way to fix it?

Excellent platformer. Lots of fun. Fond memories playing this as a kid. Still have the game for playstation 2. looks identical. Anybody who loves Earthworm Jim, Mario, Sonic , or Ghouls and Ghosts, would like this game too.
