cdrom not working under wine


here are my .wine-config and my fstab (well, the important parts)
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cd   iso9660   ro,user,noauto,unhide,exec  0      0
[Drive D]
"Path" = "/mnt/cd"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "CD-Rom"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
; make sure that device is correct and has proper permissions !
"Device" = "/dev/cdroms/cdrom0"
well... all apps in wine can see the cdrom and get the title of the cd which is inside... but there is no content... which means: if you click on the cd (you know, in the file dialog or something), you get inside, but there's nothing inside...

any idea
