wine can't see files on cdrom

When I run windows programs (like EAC or CDex) with wine the cdrom drives are not detected. However, when I browse for files, I see my both cd drives and even the label of inserted cd is displayed, but not any files or directories on that cd.
Mounting cd before running wine does not seem to change anything.

Here's part of my ~/.wine/config:
[Drive D]
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Path" = "/media/dvd"
"Label" = "/media/dvd"
"FS" = "win95"
"Device" = "/dev/dvd"

[Drive E]
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Path" = "/media/cdrecorder"
"Label" = "/media/cdrecorder"
"FS" = "win95"
"Device" = "/dev/cdrecorder"

/dev/cdrecorder and /dev/dvd both have permissions set to lrwxrwxrwx and point to /dev/sr0 and /dev/hdc, respectively.
/dev/sr0 and /dev/hdc have permissions brw------- but I am the owner, not root. I changed /dev/hcd to brwx------, didn't help.

Why use CDex on Linux? CDex uses cdparanoia, which originally is a Linux application.

I suggest you try Grip instead. Coupled with Lame you get basically the same functionality as with CDex.

I know, I know, I just need to look at and use cdex and eac sometimes, not for purpose of ripping cds. One reason is also that eac has great support for cue sheets: create cue sheet, split wav, with/without/corrected gaps, ... Besides, if I need any windows application I need to fix this if I want it to access cdrom.

BTW, is there a linux application that can exctact a cue sheet?
