I am running winamp using wine. When I am choosing music to open in winamp I can only browse inside wines c drive but I have all my music on a partition. I want to be able to play the music from the partition instead of having to copy it into a folder in wines virtual c drive.

I am using winamp for the example but its the same for other programs.

in several applications i can break out of wine's C drive, never used winamp though...it might be winamp specific –  hbdgaf Nov 22 '10 at 20:56

From inside Winamp and other applications running within Wine then you should be able to navigate to the 'Z' drive to access your Ubuntu filesystem.

The partition that i have my music on is not accessible through the Z drive. I got it working using Roland Taylors idea. thanks though –  tacomensa Nov 22 '10 at 21:50

It should be, Z is mapped to /, which means if you can browse it on your system somewhere then it's in there. Most likely you want /media/(weird string of letters), which is where the system mounts it after you open it initially on the desktop (eg by clicking places->300 gb disk) –  Scott Ritchie Jan 10 '11 at 0:47
    
While using wine drives is fine for some of us (like me) some people don't understand the concept - wine and linux appear to be using different manners of reaching files, plus to a new user /media/blablabla sounds like ςηατ τηε ηελλ διδ υοθ σαυ??? –  RolandiXor Feb 19 '11 at 12:07

You can do what fluteflute said, or put a link into your ~/Music folder or wine C:\ drive (type ln -s /path/to/partition ~/.wine/pathtocdrive in a terminal and press enter).
