Not claiming that I know what I speak of but this doesn't sound right.
What does

  $ ls -ld /dev/dvd /dev/scd0

give you?  I think /dev/dvd should be a symlink to /dev/scd0 and that
should in turn be a proper device node.  I don't have a DVD-ROM, but
for my CD-ROM it looks like

  $  ls -ld /dev/cdrom /dev/hdc
  lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            3 Apr  3  2001 /dev/cdrom -> hdc
  brw-rw----    1 root     cdrom     22,   0 Dec  1  2000 /dev/hdc

Eh, don't you need a file system <type> for the /dvd entry?

If things look as I described above you could use

  /dev/cdrom    /cdrom  iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
  /dev/dvd      /dvd    ???     user,noauto,ro  0       0

instead of what you have now if you like.

If you really made a /dev/dvd directory as you said, I'm not really
surprised libdvdread can't find a device name.
