Hi Mike,

However, when I click on the CD-ROM icon I get 'CD-ROM drive not found'.

RPCEmu on OS X does support CDs, but only ISO images, direct CD access is not supported. It doesn't seem to work with RISC OS 5.17 though (it works with 4.39 here, just tested both). As Bryan mentioned I think this is a limitation of RISC OS 5.17 with RiscPC hardware, but if it isn't and CD support works with RISC OS 5.17 in RPCEmu on Windows or Linux then I'll see if I can make it work on OS X too.
