    The CD is already mounted. I made sure that the dosdevice "d:" file links directly to the cd rom and it still didn't fix the problem. I tried what the thread suggested but I still get the same problem.

    Code:
    ln -s /mnt/cdrom0 /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d::
    ln -s /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d: 
    ln -s /mnt/cdrom0 /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d::
    Sometimes(such as the last line) I get an error saying file already exists and sometimes it gives me "read only file system" but I fixed that but recreating the d: file. I tried editing so it would match my computer

    Code:
    ln -s /mnt/cdrom /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d:
    ln -s /dev/cdrom /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d: 
    ln -s /mnt/cdrom /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d::
    In the end, I still get the same annoying problem.

    the d: should ONLY be linked to the device and d:: should only be linked tothe mount point.

    ln -s /mnt/cdrom /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d::
    ln -s /dev/cdrom /home/splittik/.wine/dosdevices/d:

    now it is important that the lnk fies you are making for d: is the actual cdrom device in the /dev folder. check one more time to make shure that you are lnking to the real cdrom name in /dev

    also just for cleansliness, delete your current d: and d:: links you already made before doing this part. also try using WineTools to configure your wine config file. its out there on the net... somewhere.
