    In order for Windows apps to see the DVD, you must have it mapped in ~/.wine/dosdevices/.

    If it isn't already mapped, and assuming your DVD is /dev/dvd, then this should map it to drive D:
    cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
    ln -s /dev/dvd d:

    thanks heaps for the help, ive done what you you recommended however it didnt work. when i go to the properties of my dvd drive it says that the device node is dev/hdc. so i tried ln -s /dev/hdc d: aswell as ln -s /dev/dvd d: i also went into the ~/.wine/dosdevices folder and found three files, C,Z and D and they are all pointing to the right place so im not sure why it isnt working. Thankyou again for your help im getting closer to solving it than what i was before. Any further help would be great!
