I don't have/use apt so I might be off: Mount the dvd/cdrom on your 
desktop (seems to work if I understand you right). Open a console and 
try "apt-cdrom add". A quick google for apt and cdrom turned up pages 
about this ("apt-cdrom is a tool to add CDROM's to APT's source list. 
The CDROM mount point and device information is taken from apt.conf
and /etc/fstab.")

You'll get there, it's just some small quirk somewhere.
