    That's a security feature. There for we can't really tell you on here how to disable it. Why do you ask?

    Aparrently I need to disable it to run DVD's from the disk on wine, because it says its read only so I can't make it excutable.

    You don't need to make the file executable. It's not the .exe file you are executing, but Wine instead.

    (and diabling such feature wouldn't change anything, anyway. optical medias are always read-inly fileysystes, no permissions can change that.)

    So, instead of trying to click the .exe file to run it you should right-click it and choose to open it with Wine. That way it makes no difference if the .exe file has execute permissions or not.

    When I try to do that it say I need to make it executable but I can't because it says its a read only file-system because its a DVD-ROM


    (that's what im doing anyway opening it with "wine windows program loader")

    What mcduck was telling you to do -
    right click on any .exe - open with - other application -> use a custom command
    For the command simply use
    wine

    This will create a new r. click option named 'wine', use that instead of wine windows program loader

    ( If you wanted to change 'wine windows program loader' then you need to edit the Exec= line in /usr/share/applications/wine.desktop to remove the cautious launcher crap, ie., to this

    Code:
    Exec=wine start /unix %f
