Game keeps asking for CD, even though it is in the drive

Hello. I used to utilize Wine years ago, and am just now getting back into it.

I'm trying to play Star Trek Armada. I have successfully installed the game, however when I click on a mission to play it says "Please insert Armada CD". I have an external (connected by usb) CD drive, and the disk is in it. I have dosdevices mounting the CD as drive d: so I'm not sure what I am missing. I know this part is correct because when I navigate to dosdevices in Finder and double-click on drive d:, the CD spins up to load the files. I can also start the game by putting in the terminal "cd /path-to-cd" then running "wine setup.exe". This results in the disk spinning up, and the game successfully launching. But thats as far as it gets :/

I've also tried using an .iso image instead of the physical disk, but this doesn't work either. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance.
