IDE CD runs when it shouldn't on WARP 3

I have just installed blue label  WARP 3 on a clone with an Acer IDE CD.  

It works OK (using OS/2's "Other" driver) until I start a particular application (California Software's Baby 4XX) then it reads the CD and displays a message " Detached Process ID # 4 - SYS0039: The D: device is not ready."
 
I can't get past that - except - when I put any CD in the
drive - then it spins the CD for a while and opens the application.

Other facts:
1.  I can find nothing in the application or CONFIG.SYS that references D: or the floppy drive.
2.  The application requires that a "Software Protection Device" aka dongle, must be in the parallel port.
3.  No other applications cause this behavior.

Any help would be appreciated -  Don Sander

Try AUTOFAIL=YES in config.sys. This setting
causes OS/2 to automatically fail many critical
errors. I've just tested accessing an open CD
here, but it generates a SYS0021, so I'm not
100% certain that the SYS0039 will
automatically fail for you, but give it a try.

It seems likely your program is probing drive
letters, so if AUTOFAIL doesn't work for you
your only recourse will be a complaint to the
vendor.
