LOL! Sorry. I guess I need to work on my reading comprehension. I totally missed that line where you mentioned Ubuntu.

So let's try this again. There is "gISOmount" it is available for install in the software center. Usage is quite straightforward. What you are trying to do should work.

I hope i'm doing something wrong and that this is not another Linux shortcoming
This would not be so much a Linux shortcoming as a Wine shortcoming. I have run across times when Wine balks at one game cd while it works fine with others. (e.g. Age of Mythology -- Mine works to a point to install, then suddenly decides it can no longer access it.)
