Trouble with CD-ROMs mounting

I've tried finding the answer ahead of time, honest

Anyway, I'm using OS3.9 on a hardfile (only way to fly) and installed CacheCDFS that came with it. Whenever I "reboot" the Amiga (or re-load WinUAE), I get "Cannot open scsi.device unit XXX" errors, and no CDROM (where XXX is the device # I'm trying, keep reading).

Before it's asked, YES, I have "UAEScsi.device" checked The drive I'm trying to use is a SCSI CD-ROM (Plextor 40x). I've tried using and not using "use ASPI SCSI Layer", and neither way works. I've read the error logs for the ID numbers (see, I read!) and tried plugging those into where I thought they should be (devs/dosdrivers/cd0), with no luck. From other messages I've read, I'm somewhat confused if I actually NEED SCSI.device installed on the hardfile, or if WinUAE just tells the OS it's there. I could be completely missing what I should be editing, as I've never had an Amiga with a SCSI controller (A1200 for the curious), so I've never tried this for real.

However, since I know it's going to be asked for, here's the error logs from both "Use ASPI SCSI Layer" checked and unchecked:

checked:

PLEXTOR CD-ROM PX-40TW 1.04 = uaescsi.device:803

Broken down, "Stealth DVD" is Daemon Tools (Plextor + modern copy protection == bad), "A" is an IDE HD, "ST328452LW" is a SCSI HD, "CD-ROM PX-40TW" is the SCSI CD-ROM I'm trying this with. Based on the error log here, I've tried modifying CD0 to use device 803 on scsi.device and uaescsi.device.

unchecked "Use ASPI SCSI layer":

SPTI: selected drive F:
Drive E: = uaescsi.device:0
Drive F: = uaescsi.device:1
scsidev_start_threads()
Drive E: is the CD-ROM, drive F: is Daemon Tools. Once again, I modified CD0 with no luck (only a changing error message).

So, the big question is: Am I even editing the right file to make this work? Do I need something else? Am I missing something blatantly obvious?

(note - I just got a tip from an ex-Amiga user friend to try, but I'd still like ideas thrown at me)
