Question Need help to make a game see a mounted .iso as disk in cd-rom


Hi, everybody!
I have a game .iso for windows. When I run it with Wine 1.01 it says to insert disk into cdrom.
I used
Code:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 Zanzarah.iso /mnt/cdrom
but the game still asks for the disk.
I also tried to find nocd, but couldn't find any for my version.

Can this be helped somehow? I mean can I make it see the .iso as a disk like it happens when one uses Daemon Tools with windows or somehow else?

Any help appreciated

(OS - Debian)

You may infact have to burn it to a cd.
Also i am alittle suspicious of a game on an ISO, it isn't illegal, is it?

Pay attention to the disk label. The CD itself might show up as Zanzarah, and it's showing up for you as /mnt/cdrom, with no disk volume. The program might look for/expect that, or who knows what else it might want.

You probably need to add the loop device as a drive in wine. Or add /mnt/cdrom to the drives in wine.

The problem is that my netbook doesn't have cdrom and at the moment the external one is not with me and you know, it's not always convenient to use it - so I'm looking for another way

I'm interested in all of this so I tried on another computer - the game worked with Daemon Tools and I'm not sure if it showed the title of the disk. But I might be wrong. I'll check out when find some computer with windows and daemon tools
