as stated in developer docs, wine would "guess" the "\\.\<driverletter>:" device
from /etc/mtab or /etc/fstab if no symlink exists, but i've not seen any
attempts to do so in this case...
For now, a symlink to a windows filesystem partition (FAT) should work

ln -s /dev/<blockdevice_fs_partition> $(WINEPREFIX)/dosdevices/c::

Symlink directly to block device, do not use mount points (won't work).
Use some non-important filesystem for that purpose, for example a little FAT
partition on USB stick.
Grant the user direct access to block device (chmod/chown user).

>From what I've seen that type of copy protection runs GetVolumeInformation() and
specific DeviceIoControl() (CDROM_DeviceIoControl) requests.
Some stuff fails (unsupported ioctls), but that doesn't seem to harm.

I tested this with other applications which use the same type of xtreamlok copy
Should be the same for this game - though I can't verify it (wiped off the demo
download data) ;-)
