    Software won't recognize cdrom in Linux

    I am using Slackware 10 and just installed wine so I can use some Windows programs on my linux partition. The problem is when I start up a piece of software that uses the CD/DVD ROM it just says "No Devices Found!"

    My wine config file is set up like this :
    Code:
    [Drive C]
    "Path" = "~/.wine/drive_c"
    "Type" = "hd"
    
    [Drive D]
    "Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
    "Type" = "cdrom"
    ;make sure that device is correct and has proper permissions !
    "Device" = "/dev/cdrom"
    and the dosdevices is set up as
    d: z: and c:
    d: points to /mnt/cdrom
    z: points to /
    c: points to the fake windows drive

    Are you sure you have the right path to your drives? Try /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd instead of /dev/cdrom.


    !) What version of Wine are you running? If it is not the latest version for Slackware try upgrading to the latest.

    2) Try the winecfg command at the command line. This will bring up a control panel. One of the options will be drives. Click drives, and look for a button named "autodetect." If that doesn't work, use the add option button to manually add your CD/DVD drive. Make sure you have the right path.

    Type this:

    mount

    What does it say? Something tells me you didn't mount the drives before trying to use them.

    I am using the latest version offered to me on www.winehq.com 0.9.12. And when I do the "autodetect" it seems to detect everything just fine. However when I try to run the Software it still says "No Device Found". And if I try to run another piece of Software that uses the CD/DVD Rom it says:
    Failed to read file "d:\"
    Invalid paremeter.

    Sorry gore didn't see your post
    mount:
    Code:
    /dev/hda6 on / type ext2 (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    /dev/hda5 on /fat-c type ntfs (rw)
    devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
    /dev/hdc on /mnt/cdrom type iso9660 (ro)

    Hmm,
    Well, it looks like it's mounted. (But that was a good idea gore. I didn't think a thing about it having to be mounted.)
    Try this. Run winecfg from the command line again.
    Click on drives.
    Click on Show Advanced.
    Under Drive mappings click on your cdrom drive to select it.
    Under Type, make sure CDROM is selected.

    It was set on "autodetect" but I switched it over to CDROM, and still the same problems...

    Try to use the cdrom with the disk you have been using, and copy and paste the exact error message you are getting. BTW, what program are you trying to use?
