    Wine and ISO as CDRom

    I want to run the game Black & White on my ubuntu 10.04 through wine and it installs fine but when i try to run the game i get a message that tells me to insert the cd but i have wine config pointing to my mounted iso for a cdrom drive but it still wont work.
    any help would be appriciated.

    Wouldn't you have to actually run the physical cd-rom instead of a mounted iso?

    Burn the iso to a disc and try it.

    Are you sure it's a working iso?

    Try this and post results.

    isoinfo -h foobar.iso
    where foobar is your iso file name.
