Thread: Wine not offering CDROM access

  1. #1

    Default Wine not offering CDROM access

    I use Opensuse 11.3.
    Wine does not give me cdrom access. However, when run as superuser, it does.

    winecfg does not help either: Entering /dev/sr0 did not give access to the cdrom whereas when running winecfg as root and creating Volumes automatically does create a cdrom without problems.

    Settings links in .wine/dosdevices did not give access either.

    my dosdevices lokks like this:
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 10 30. Apr 21:31 c: -> ../drive_c/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 8 30. Apr 22:02 d: -> /dev/sr0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 17 30. Apr 21:32 e: -> /sys/kernel/debug/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 13 30. Apr 21:32 f: -> /proc/bus/usb/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 4 30. Apr 21:32 g: -> /mnt/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 12 30. Apr 21:32 h: -> /home/judith/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 8 1. Mai 00:11 i:: -> /dev/sr0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 judith users 1 30. Apr 21:31 z: -> //

    Note that I need access to the device and not the files since I want to rip an audio CD with EAC which works well if run as root.

    Default Re: Wine not offering CDROM access

    The problem is solved. Wine needs access to /dev/sg1 (or whatever your cdrom drive is).
    This is done by chmod 666 /dev/sg1.
    However, this has to be done every time again after the computer has been booted.
    The permanent solution is to add the user to the group cdrom.
