    Mounted disk-Image ask for insert CD

    I've got an ISO diskimage of a game I want to run from my harddrive instead of the CDROM. Now that it's mounted and I run it, It does start, but then ask me to insert the CD still.. ?

    Are you running this in wine, native Linux or in a virtual Windows OS?

    Right, I run it in Wine, 1.1.28.
    The Windows version doen't seem to make any difference I might add

    Though it might have something to do with fstab, but changing from cdrom0 to my mounted diskimage didn't affect anything eather. Hm

    So, mount your iso then tell wine it is a cdrom. For example, mount the ISO at /mnt/mygame, then bring up your wine configuration (applications - Wine - configure wine) tool and click the drives tab, tell it to add a new drive (D and that the path is /mnt/mygame and that the type of mount is a CDROM.

    And don't bump so soon...give people a chance to get home from work

    Yep, exactly this I've tried. The ISO is there, and can be explored, and when I run the game I get the fullscreen graphicmode and then the game ask me to insert CD.
    Wine still not seem to find it. Might the directory "media" have some involvement

    So, you have given it the path to the mounted ISO image, told it to make it a cdrom and used drive letter "D". Unfortunately you have run through my bag of tricks with wine. Is it the same drive letter that you installed it from by chance?

    Actually no. Did install it from the CD. Uninstalled, I tried to run the installation from the the D drive now, the ISO that is, but it prompts after a few secs for CD after klicking the executable. Better to start from there anyway.
