 If there is no DVD mounted, selectDrivePopup() tries to return a default
 like /dev/dvd on Linux, or D: on Windows. On OS X, it should default to
 disk1, not /dev/disk1. I will commit a change in mediamonitor-darwin.h.
 There are other problems for playing DVDs, though - will try to spend some
 time investigating.
 All this code was my poorely-designed kludge to support multiple drives.
 selectDrivePopup() could return NULL if there is no suitable device
 containing suitable media, but that sort of assumes the user has to have
 the MediaMonitor enabled. The hard-coded default was for users who don't
 want the extra process/DBus/uDev/DiskArbitration overhead, and turned off
 the MediaMonitor
