program run with wine cant find CD


So i got wine installed, edited the config file to my specs. But when i first tried to test Diablo II,by wine'ing Game.exe, i get a Windows error box that says "Please Insert Expansion CD". So its not finding the CD.

things ive tried:
1. went into config and changed the cdrom device to "/dev/hdc" (since /dev/cdrom linked to it)
2. messed around with the permissions on /dev/hdc
But im not really sure if I did it right.

How would i fix this prob? Is it a matter of permissions, and what do i need to do to the permissions for the device?

BTW, im doing all of this while on root.

Wine doesn't want to run as root. You should run it as a user. I have no idea about Diablo, but here's a HOWTO:

Made a little progress with this.. i got my wine running under a normal user, but now its giving me cdrom permission errors..

fixme:cdrom:CDROM_Open Can't open configured CD-ROM drive at D:\ (device /dev/cdrom): Permission denied
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetStatusCode Unmapped error code 9: Bad file descriptor
fixme:ntdll:RtlNtStatusToDosError no mapping for 00000001

ill try to cmod /dev/hdc, because for some reason you can cmod /dev/cdrom. Then post a followup.

Back to square one

changed cdrom permissions, changed Windows mount permissions, ran wine with user.. but back to the same problem I had with root.. Please Insert Expansion CD.

Any ideas?
