I found one problem with mixed CD's.Started with no music in one game, but later I 
found that using windows cdplayer audio CD's play right with wine but when first 
track is data whole CD is unplayable. I think I tracked down the problem to functions 

dlls/winmm/mcicda/mcicda.c (?)

I want to try to find fix myself (I feel it is time to start to work on something), but if 
anyone thinks it is cleanly his playground I will provide as much info as I can get... So 
let me know if I should start to try to understand wine code or if I should let it be... 
Until now I spent about one-two hours on it si I made no real progess (I only learn 
how it works...)

problem is that it calculates bad frames for first datatrack (it thinks it has more then 
66 minutes, which is about 3x more then it really has.... dagrab shows that first track 
uses frames 150..99xxx and wine writes to its log 150...288xxx.

After this it cannot find next track and in log I see  'device doesn't play'

or does someone work on it already? I searched bugzilla but found nothing...

so bye for now...

(some filenames, numbers and messages are from my bad memory but I guess you 
know what's going on ;-)
