7th guest "Please insert cd2"
When finishing knives puzzle and going into door that message apears.
Is this the same problem than I had with music?
An y clue to bypass this error?

I haven't really played The 7th Guest in ScummVM, but it sounds like you didn't copy all the necessary data files from both CDs. There is a function in the game engine which tries to figure out which of the discs are available. I don't know exactly when it's called, but here is what it does:

1) Try to open the file b.gjd. If it succeeds, it assumes that disc 1 is available.
2) Try to open the file at.gjd. If it succeeds, it assumes that disc 2 is available.

If if succeeds in opening both files, it assumes that both discs are available. If it fails in opening both, it assumes that no disc is available. The program isn't making an exhaustive test; that would require looking for all the expected files, and possibly verifying that they're intact. It's just making an educated guess. I don't have my discs within reach at the moment, so I couldn't give you a complete list.
