How do I describe the path to my dvd drive (J) in WINE?


I am using WINE to run some XP games. If the game requires more than one disc a box pops up asking me to input the path to my cd/dvd drive. I guess I just do not know the correct syntax to describe this.

Can you help please? My drive is the J: drive.

Thank you

There will be a tab labelled "Drives". In that tab you can select a drive to add, and point it to the mount point ofthe CDROM (on most modern distros, I believe this is /media/cdrom, perhaps /media/cdrom0). If that mount point does not exist, make sure you have a CD in the drive before browsing to it, or type it manually if you know for sure what it is.
