I'm trying to install a game from 2 ISO files. I mount the ISO1 and run setup program.

$ sudo mount -o loop '/home/echo/Downloads/cd1.iso' /home/echo/virtualdrive/cd1
$ wineconsole cmd
Z:\> D:\Setup.exe

It goes fine until the point where it asks for the second CD. I try to eject the CD from a new terminal.

$ wine eject
Cannot open device for drive d:
$ sudo umount /home/echo/virtualdrive/cd1
umount: /home/echo/virtualdrive/cd1: device is busy.
        (In some cases useful info about processes that use
         the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))

I manage to unmount with -l option, mount the second CD and press OK to continue installation. I get the same prompt to insert the second CD.

I have tried a lot of commands from various forums. None of them worked. Can anyone help me out?

Are you able to mount both CD1 and CD2 and just point the installer at the 2nd when it requests it?

you could also try umount -f

not a Wine expert, but you should be able to mount the two ISO images at the same time (under different directories, obviously, thus showing as, say, D: and E:) and if the Setup.exe is smart enough it shouldn't matter that the two discs are in two different "drives" (at least that's how it works in a typical Windows system, unless they've done some nasty hard-coding in the setup code)
