To use the DVD drive in your linux box, do the following:
(Note, if you mount a DVD using your OS's mount program, wine should discover it when using Auto-Configure devices under winecfg).
(Assumes your Dvd is /dev/hdd, mounted on /media/cdrom/, and will be device D: in wine)
ln -s /media/cdrom -s d:
ln -s /dev/hdd -s d::
(Notice the double colon on the second symlink)
Shutdown DVD Decrypter and open it back up. Make sure the I/O interface is set to SPTI - Microsoft.
Rip and Enjoy :-)

Configure DVD Decrypter to use DVD Drive
by Kelly on Sunday August 1st 2010, 16:07
all the above never worked so here is what worked for me. go into DVD decrypters Menu and Select i/o and select aspi and it will pick up your drive and you don't need to add DVD Decrypter to your wine aplications and select windows nt 4.0 as it works without it and you don't need to autodetect your drive.
Now we will add DVD Decryptor but use Windows NT 4.0 instead. This is important or else you will most likely get the "no devices detected" error.
1. On the 'Applications' tab, click on 'Add application'.
2. Navigate your way into Program Files-->DVD Decryptor and find 'DVDDecryptor.exe'.
3. Highlight this file and click on the open button.
4. This will take you back to the 'Applications' tab window. DVD Decryptor should now appear in the list in that window.
5. Highlight DVD Decryptor then go down to the Windows Version drop down menu and choose 'Windows NT 4.0'.
Detecting your disk drives
1. Go to the 'Drives' tab then click on 'Autodetect'.
2. Click on the 'Apply' button.
3. Click OK to exit winecfg.
Another way to configure the AppDefaults

I had trouble finding the Wine config in Crossover, so I ran regedit and added a key called "DVDDecrypter.exe" in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults. Under that key, I created a new String value called "Version" and give it a value of "nt40". It worked.
