Im tryingn to run a cd from the windows 3.1 to '95 era. Its a Ford factory service manual disk for pulling up automotive diagnostics/schematics etc.  The disk installed without a problem using wine /path/to/cdrom/install.exe . I can also run the locally installed executable file without a problem once again using wine /path/to/local.exe .  The problem is that the program requires a callback to the cdrom drive either to load the files on the fly or for protection.  Every time I actually try to load one of the schematics/pages the program just says:

> Please Insert volume 1995 Truck CD-ROM - Revision 11.0

with the usual ok/cancel/help buttons.  Ive tried manually creating the cdrom device in winecfg and also using the autodetect, both with no luck.  I also tried manually entering the volume label 
exactly as the dialog box requested it with no luck.  

I can also browse the cdrom drive from within winecfg without problems and it is set to cd-rom type.  Ive tried using WinME or Winxp with same results.  And the program does run fine from my windows xp system which is dual booted on the same box


me at here:~/.wine% ls -al dosdevices 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 me users   10 2008-05-09 19:14 c: -> ../drive_c/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 me users    8 2008-05-10 07:54 d: -> /kompakt/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 me users    8 2008-05-09 19:14 d:: -> /dev/hdc

Would really appreciate any help
