    Virtual disk drive not recognized by wine

    I am trying to run You Don't Know Jack in wine - appdb says it has Platinum status, so compatibility shouldn't be the issue. My laptop doesn't have an optical disk drive. So, I ripped the disk to an iso image, mounted it with gmount-iso, and tried to open the program.

    The program still says the disk is not inserted. I know on previous laptops with optical drives, I could mount an image on /dev/cdrom0 or /dev/sr0 or whatever and it would be recognized. My /dev directory had no cdrom0 directory, so I made one. I mounted the iso there but it still didn't recognize it. I've tried in my home folder, in /cdrom, and in my newly-created /dev/cdrom0 but no luck. Anybody know what is going wrong?

    I just had to add the folder as a wine drive in wine's configure panel.
