Mounting an ISO image from a CD different than mounting from HD?

I tried to mount an image:

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop,ro /home/notig/Share/Diablo_CD1.iso /mnt/Diablo

And it successfully mounts, but when i run

wine /mnt/Diablo/INSTALLER.EXE
it says

please insert install disk (iso1 is the install disk) .

However I burned the ISO onto a cd, and i

sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/Diablo
that works just fine. and when i run the installer from wine it works as it should. so my question is why is there a difference??? If i mounted them shouldnt it be the same????

Most likely /dev/cdrom is configured as a wine (d: ?) drive where as /mnt/Diablo is not, other than that it should work.

I tried replacing the symbolic link /dev/cdrom and made it point to /mnt/Diablo instead of /dev/hdc. Stlil no luck. I do not see anywhere in my ~/.wine/config file that mentions hdc... or d: for that matter. In my userdef.reg file i have "DiabloIICD"="/mnt/Diablo" but it doesnt seem to make any differense.

ANy ideas?

You should define in wine config /mnt/Diablo directory type CD, not HD
