while trying to run application foo.exe with wine, the app do not start, but it
says that it can't access the cd-rom.
The output from the console says:
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetStatusCode Unmapped error code 13: Permission denied
My guess is that I have to change some permissions, the question is what to
Is it possible that you are running an application that is copy protected and checks the CD-ROM upon access? In Windows certain copy protected programs make calls to a windows DLL KERNEL32 that do certain CD rom checks such as KERNEL32.GetDriveTypeA (returns a 5 if the drive is a CD-ROM), KERNEL32.GetVolumeInformationA (checks the label on the CD-ROM) and KERNEL32.GetDiskFreeSpaceA (should be zero space free if it's a CD-ROM) to make sure you have the original CD in the drive, if these calls aren't emulated under WINE then they won't pass and could produce an error like what you get. I could be off since I don't run anything that does a CD check under WINE but if this is your case you would need to find a way to make the program not check the CD or to get WINE to emulate the checks.
In reference to my post on the kernel32 checks, that was my point, this CD would work in Windows but if wine isn't emulating the CD drive exactly the way the copy protected software expects Windows to behave then it will fail or error out when it asks wine to do something it doesn't know how to emulate.
