I'll say this one last time. Then I am done with this.

I believe that the way to do this is to *write* a repo configuration
file that *points* to the DVD drive. Which is what that article said to
do. And no you can not put the disk in the drive and expect the GUI
applications to add it for you.

And that, I don't think, is considered a 'bug'. So if you want this to
change you need to write a Bugzilla RFE. Not a Bugzilla bug. That would
put you in direct contact with the developer and not a common user like
I am.

Have a good day.
