Never mind. Just for the record libcurl3 is default in debian stretch. How
did you get libcurl4 installed? And why?
you should take the version matching your library set.

$ dpkg -l | grep curl
ii  libcurl3:amd64                          7.52.1-5+deb9u7

I did not have time to go through the documentation, but it looks like you
need a kernel driver to use this CD emulation. I was thinking when you have
the driver it would work.
We usually do all the work in virutal machine or chrooted environment, where
you can easily revert back and not impact your working environment.
