Unfortunately I can't solve your problem but hopefully I can clarify
your understanding of what is going on a bit. When you press
CTRL-ALT-Fx and get a text console it is important to note that this is
_not_ an xterm. It is a local console on your _client_ where the DVD
drive is installed, which is why you can see it there.
Conversely, your X desktop is running on the _server_ but is displaying
on your _client_. Since the DVD drive is not attached to the _server_
you cannot see it there, where the xterm is running.
Depending on what you want to do with the DVD you can may be able to
install a localapp and run that to access the DVD.
