Hmm, I wish I can help you with your problem, but I can't since I am using PlayOnLinux for my WINE needs.

Try it: http://playonlinux.com

If you can't help please refrain from spamming POL in WINE threads... the issue will not go away just because a frontend is used.

Hi.

This issue isn't actually Wine's fault - it's sort of Blizzard's fault as to how they made the DVDs for the Lich King release, but it causes more problems for linux than it does for most Windows installs. That said, there are Windows users who have also experienced this problem - it seems to depend on the DVD drive you have, as well.

Try following the advice in the Wine section of the WoWwiki:

or reading this thread from when the issue first came up:
