How does the name of CD-ROM drive in DOSBox like? Is it MSCD001 or anything else? Thanks in advance!

The command mount d d:\ -t cdrom will make your real drive D: the DOSBox drive D:

Is this what you mean?

On paper cd-rom emulation in dosbox doesn't have a specific device emulated, but you can enable lowlevel cd-rom emulation to a few modes like ioctl or aspi to have true cd-rom emulated in dosbox, which perhaps you can have drivers like oakcdrom in use or use the drive in windows.

I mean neither the CD-ROM drive letter nor the name on the package, but the internal representation of CD-ROM in Microsoft CD-ROM Extension (MSCDEX) which is a part of DOSBox.

I think that dosbox is internally emulating a standard ATAPI cd-rom using oakcdrom.sys, i could be wrong though.
