My crappy dumbphone is a HTC desire 4g and I am running an app. called AnDosBox which seems to function just fine for a couple games but when I try to run heroes of might and magic and its telling me it can't accessthe cd drive

What I need is the command to set a local file on my sdcard as if it were reading from avcd drive. I've looked around and nothing seems to fix.
My local directory is set by default in the config file as

mount c: /sdcard/

The problem game is in the directory /sdcard/games/heroes

Being that droid uses linux (I think...) I'm not familiar with how dosbox would function on a smartphone. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Solved it myself but if anyone else has the same problem, I solved it ny adding the line

mount d: /sdcard/games/heroes -t cdrom

In the dosbox config file

I'm sure I'll have harder questions in the future

I didn't even know they made DosBox for Android, is it any good? I would love to be able to play Wolfenstein and Doom on my phone. I installed ScummVM on my Droid2 to play Monkey Island and while it was decent with the touch it wasn't great.
