[Wine] cdrom access does not work "as before" in wine-1.0.1 ?

i managed to get the CDROM recognised by the bar.ex app:
in fact, i installed the bar app before to configure the D: drive, so 
that bar.exe was configured to check his cdrom access through path 
Z:\path\to\mounted\cdrom, which is not a CDROM type access.
I had to mofidy the registry for bar.exe seeting "CDROM access" to D:\ 
instead of Z:\path\to\mounted\cdrom and then bar.exe could read the 
CDROM image.

so, this works fine.
