On my system my /media director was empty also. I created the directory
dvdrecorder myself. It was after that the the mentioned hal updates things
began to work. It may have been me creating the dvdrecorder directory that
did it. I know in 10.0 I had a problem and the solution was create the
directory manually.

I looked at the permissions from a console as root since I was never getting
the icon. Somewhere I read in my searching to solve this, that dvdrecorder
direcroty must be in /media. When I install dvd in drive the contents of the
dvd are visible in /media/dvdrecorder and also a konqueror session opens with
the contents.

I also assigned the permisions as the same as I had in 10.0. They may be an
over kill. but it works!

You may want to try creating dvdrecorder in /media and see if it will then

Hope this can be of some help.
