Hello list,

Although i read posts related to cdrom access with wine in the forum and 
did configure wine the way it is told, i still cannot reach a cdrom 
image with wine-1.0.1. However, i could with older versions of wine.

Here is the config:

# mount -o loop -t iso9660 /path/to/bar-cdrom.iso /media/cdrom

$ ls /media/cdrom
[stuff listed from the bar-cdrom.iso, read as normal user]

$ winecfg
[ -> add D: pointing to /media/cdrom, having CD-ROM access type]

$ winefile
[ i can see the cdrom stuff in D: with normal user]

$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/foo/bar.exe
[ foo/bar working correctly, but when it tries to access the CDROM,
   it opens a popup telling something like:
      "please insert the bar CDROM into your CDROM drive"]

i ensure the bar-cdrom.iso is the right iso for the foo/bar program. 
This used to work with a previous version of wine (i don't remember 
which one though). The linux kernel i use is a 2.6.27, glibc is 2.8.90, 
both from ubuntu 8.10. Thx for any hint on getting the cdrom access (as 
an iso file mounted as loop device) working on wine-1.0.1. Maybe is it 
fixed on the latest wine?
