you should be able to either edit the wine config file or i think in winecfg there is a place to add drives. just click "add drive" and browse to the mounted cdrom. i haven't used wine in a long time but that seems to be how i did it when i set it up.

why are you using such an old version of wine?

how i add CD Rom in wine-20050725

Thnks Mr. bosewicht for the reply. I tried winecfg in which there is a place to add drives, but the drives are already added there but doesn't work I also added the CD Roms manually but all in vein. furthermore I'm using old version of wine with SUSE 10 due to reason that i am unable to update it with new one. When I update it using YAST it asks installation disk but doesn't update with my specified location. I also tried to update wine-20050725-3.2.i586.patch.rpm using YAST but the situation remains unchanged. If you could also help me in this regard I'll be more thankful to you.

You realy need to update, winecfg isn't fully working until the non-date numbered versions.
