Additional Comments

Installed into a 32-bit prefix. Wine launched with "Microsoft.VC80.CRT" as the current directory. Windows version set to Windows 7.

Tested with a Samsung SH-W162C drive connected via a USB-IDE adapter.

The cdrdao crash at the start of the program has no influence on EAC's functionality, as writing works flawlessly. In fact, it looks like cdrdao is not needed at all : if the crash annoys you, just delete the CDRDAO directory - EAC launches and works just fine without it.
