    Unhappy Playing Oblivion with a mounted .iso

    I'm trying to play Oblivion with an iso file. I have tried mounting it with gISOMount and AcetoneISO. It mounts successfully, and I get to where it says "Play", but then I get an error that says: "Unable to find a CD-ROM/DVD drive on this computer." What's the problem? I'm pretty sure my disk drive works, but that shouldn't matter because the .iso is being mounted on a virtual disk.

    I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, and I think my Wine is the newest version.

    Thanks in advance.

    Oblivion is designed to be played with the disk in the optical drive.

    Their is a NoCD/DVD patch out there for it, whether you can get it working with with Wine in your situation is another question.

    These days I play Oblivion on a PS3, where the disk has to always be in the optical drive also.

    The NoCD has worked fine for me.

    EDIT: Also go into wine's config and make sure your virtual drive is on the list of drives.
    This signature requires Flash Player 10 or higher to display. You appear to have an out of date version or it is not installed.

    (lol)

    Ok. Where can you find the NoCD patch? I tried Googling it and found one at gamecopyword or something like that, but for some reason, I can't extract the .rar file. I forget what the error said, but I'll go try it again.

    In Wine's config, I have a C: drive (.../drive-c) and a Z: drive(/).

    EDIT: I found a different NoCD patch and I think it is working. Thanks!
