[Wine] Catraxx and default cdrom drive

Newbie alert:
Moderate experience with managing a private headless Debian server, a few weeks experience with Ubuntu AMD64 10.10 and a few hours with Wine, version 1.3.6.

Main reason for installing wine is that I want to run Catraxx v7.32, a windows-only CD database program.

Installing wine was easy; installing catraxx with minor issues but it runs OK now without problems.

Except: you're supposed to be able to scan an audio CD and import the information into the database. This doesn't work: the program hangs with a mouse pointer 'busy' indication. Killed it after several minutes had passed (should give results in seconds, so waiting several minutes is fair)

In wine config, the CD-rom is mapped to d:
> ls -l ~/.wine/dosdevices/d*
/home/vanaalten/.wine/dosdevices/d:: -> /dev/sr0

But in Catraxx's setup, I can't specify D: as the media drive, all I have is a dropdown box with 'default'. When running under windows, I see the drive letter instead.

At first I thought it might be a mounting issue - but now I'm not so sure, since audio CDs don't have a file system so are not mountable.

Then I thought Nautilus might be interfering, but disabling it's automount feature didn't help.

The AppDB only lists this post (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=10360), which indicates that it should work (with old version of Wine).

Any ideas how to get this working?
