I was on an old game kick and decided to throw HOMM2 on an image play it off the hard drive. Unfortunately, the CD audio does not seem to play when trying to run it off Daemon Tools. I've tried checking analog audio, unchecking it, and turning on or off digital audio in the device properties for the generic drive Daemon tools created, but no combinations of these work.

The CD contains both data and audio tracks. I burned the image to a normal CDRW and it worked fine, so the image does not seem to be the issue. Oddly enough, I can play the music in Windows Media Player, but it just does not seem to work in game.
Any ideas?

Disable analog audio, ensure digital audio is enabled.
It's possible that it works from lowest drive letter only - seems some programmers thought "noone owns two cd-drives" in those days. ;)

Yep, it definately looks like the audio only works on the lowest lettered drive. Gonna see what I can do to work around that. Thanks for the help!

That implies, then, that you can use Disk Management to move your drive letter associations around. Might work if you made like the first Daemon Tools Virtual drive B:\.s

Another method:
You assign unique drive letters (up to 4) for each virtual CD-ROM or DVD-ROM you want mounted. To control which drive letter will be used :

Right click the DAEMON Tools tray icon... Virtual CD/DVD-ROM ... Device 0: ... Set device parameters ... There are two drop down comboboxes Drive Letter and DVD Region. Use the drive letter drop down.

Of course you change the 'Device 0' part if you have other virtual drives.
