CD/DVD Rom not found in GUI

Hi all. Recently I installed virtual box 2.0.2 on my Gentoo Linux (2.6.26) and noticed that the UI does not list my DVD/CDROM drives. Mine are listed as /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1 with /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd links as appropriate. When I go to the device menu and try to set it up to use either of these drives, the dropdown box does not list them. The workaround I use is to go into the Machines/<Machine>/<Machine>.xml file and change it so the DVDDrive lines are as follows:
and for good measure, I change /dev/sr0 permisions to rwx for all.
