You could try the loopback method for mounting CD images:


sudo mount -o loop <filename.iso> <mount point>

Then once you are prompted for the next disc you could use the same "wine eject d:" method, or you could do a lazy umount:


sudo umount -l <mount point>

Then mount the next image with the same process. You could also try a lazy umount with cdemu as well.
