Has anyone run a trace on what sections of the Win32 subsystem it's trying to
scan for emulation?

Several things can be checked for emulation.

What I've noticed in logs is attempts to directly access the drive through I/O. 

This would be my number one suspect without even seeing that.  It's only a
logical course of action to directly access the drive in manners that would be
near impossible to emulate to check if it's real.

Pass through access to the drive is possible in VirtualBox, which can directly
pass I/O to a drive.  It's virtual drive fails virtual drive tests, and it's
physical pass-through passes them.  It's a perfect example of how it should be

Since Wine doesn't even do any real emulation, this should be even easier on
it.  If we can get someone with knowledge in that field to write a patch to do
so, it would be nice.

I don't know about other systems, but Linux systems grant direct I/O to the
CD/DVD drive systems using the group system.  The "wine" group should be
configured to have access to these groups, if it doesn't already.  It then
needs the proper routines to forward those I/O requests when sent to the
various Wine drivers that handle them in Win32.
