wine can't find cdrom?


hey guys...i'v installed a program, and everything during installation worked fine...but when i go to run the program, it tells me that it's cd is not in the cdrom. i'm thinking that this could be because wine is not configured right giving the right path to the cdrom? well, when configuring my config file, i realised that it kept looking for ~/.wine/c/.wine/c when my config file woudl specify :'~/.wine/c'. by changing that to only 'c/', it works. but, how do i make it find the cdrom? if i do '/mnt/cdrom', it will start looking for '~/.wine/mnt/cdrom'.

so, what i have done, thinking that this might work obviously, is make a link to my cdrom, and called it 'd' and placed it in my .wine folder, where my 'c' folder is also located. i changed my config file again to look into 'd/' now. but now this is the error i get

Could not stat /home/politisj/.wine/d

is this cause i didn't make a symbolic link? is there a difference between making a plain link and a symbolic link? what else can i do to get around this? thnx

Edit the ~/.wine/config file and add a cdrom drive. Or put a symbolic link under your fake c.

i already have the section for the cdrom. the thing is, wine got messed up, during the many compilations that i did, so, no matter what path i configure it for, i still adds '~/.wine/' in front of it. i thought about the symbolic link, and was wondering, when i right click, in gnome, and choose link..., is that the samething as a symbolic link?

Not sure if gnome makes symbolic links, but from command-line:
ln -s /mnt/cdrom ~/.wine/c/cdrom

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR it seems as though, it just doesn't know that the cd in the cdrom is it's own. It keeps giving me the same error, that the cd in the rom isn't the cd it needs, and to put in the proper one. but, if i move the folder away from where the config reads, then an error comes saying that there doesn't exist a cd period. i guess that part is good, which means that it is reading the cdrom the first time, just having trouble knowing that it's the right cd. what's up with that?

thnx

It looks like it is a problem with your Windows program. Run notepad, and browse to see if you can see the cdrom. If notepad sees it fine, then your program may have some sort of copy protection. You can try adjusting the config file in case the progam is looking at the cdrom label.
