When I run winecfg and tell it to Autodetect is finds my 500 gb hard drive and assigns it as drive k: which is great. But the mapping doesn't seem to stick. Sometimes in the middle of a task (usually in DVD Rebuilder) the drive will disappear but even if it doesn't then it's gone after a reboot.

I'm not seeing an option in winecfg to save the settings so is there something I'm missing? I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy with wine version 0.9.58. The drive is formatted in ntfs with ntfs-3g so might that be the problem?

I *think* the drive configuration options in winecfg
are left over from a time when drive hotplug events
weren't handled by wine. Now that wine handles them,
they can override any manual changes you make.
I think that's a bug/usability problem, but I'm not quite sure.

Don't use ntfs-3g - it does not provide all the functionality required for Wine. Install programs into Wine's "fake c:" drive.
Aside from that - there is a known problem with drives disappearing if one of them conflicts with cdrom. Run 'ls -la ~/.wine/dosdevices' and paste results here.

When I issued the ls -la ~/.wine/dosdevices command I noticed that it was listing drives/partitions that don't exist anymore. I've changed hard drives and partitions more than a few times since I installed linux and wine. Should have been obvious that I check that directory for old dosdevices. Anyway here's the output of the command before I deleted the obsolete entries:

Code:
ls -la ~/.wine/dosdevices

As far as using ntfs-3g, I do a lot of video editing of files that are captured using a hauppauge pvr-150 card. I do install programs in the fake c: drive, I use the ntfs drive for the mpg files so I can access them with r/w in windows when I need to. I use Womble's mpeg-vcr in wine to edit the mpg files on the ntfs drive (gopdit and gopchop seem to mess them up somehow) then reboot into windows to author a dvd in tmpgenc dvd author. Then it's back into linux to shrink the dvd with wine and dvd rebuilder this way I can fit more on a disc.

This probably sounds ridiculous but dvd authoring sucks on linux so far. There are a few programs getting close to good, but nothing that I've found works like I need it to.

I can't reboot at the moment because I'm in the middle of an important task that can't be interrupted, but I'll do so later and post back if there's further problems.
