    Old games with cd audio tracks

    Greetings,
    I am using wine-6.0.1 and my os is Kubuntu 21.04.
    I loaded a cd image (Age of Empires) with gCDemu and installed with wine and everything works fine, my only problem is that the game does not play cda tracks
    Any suggestions?
    Many thanks in advance

    This is a game from 1997. Back at that time it was very common for the CD drive to be connected directly to the sound card with a short cable. A program would just tell the drive to go to a track and play it and no further action needed to be taken by the program. If that's what the program is doing then you're out of luck because modern PC don't have that connection anymore and it wouldn't work with an emulated CD-drive anyway.
