NOTE: The same folders appear properly as bundles for other user accounts on the same machine.

To get the original dvdmedia icon back, do the following:
* Go to a 10.7.2 or earlier machine.
* Navigate to the Applications folder in Finder.
* Right-click on the "DVD Player" application and choose "Show Package Contents"
* Navigate to Contents > Resources.
* Copy the DVDMedia.icns file.
* Return to your 10.7.3 machine.
* Navigate again to Applications > DVD Player > (Show Package Contents) Contents > Resources
* Paste the DVDMedia.icns file there (you will need to authenticate with your password).
Then all your dvdmedia files will display the correct icon once again.

geyien, while I assume that method works, I was hoping for something less intrusive.

It looks like there is at least one other person this has happeneed to.

This article seems to answer to my first question.

Had same problem.
After 10.7.3 update today, for all my .dvdmedia rip folders:
1) icons went to blank pages with a rolled corner
2) when fitzing with the "Opens With" I somehow turned all .dvdmedia bundles into non "doubleclickable-as-an-app-bundle" plain ol' Finder folders.
As to 1)
I'm still working on the missing icon part (happened with the 10.7.3 update ... the DVD Player app is a new one of 5.5 where the old one was 5.4 I'm figuring has something to do with it).
As to 2) I found this great trick to restore the functionality :
kudos ggmt827 at this Macrumors thread
1. Open TextEdit (or some text editor), create a small text file and save it.
2. Right-click on the text file, and choose "Get Info".
3. Under Name & Extension, change the extension to ".dvdmedia". Hit Enter to save this change.
4. Under Open With, the associated program should be showing VLC. Select DVD Player instead, and save that change.
Now all the .dvdmedia folders should be reassociated with DVD Player.

I followed geyien's solution as described and it worked fine - I've the icons back now. No problems yet. Interesting note is that there was no DVDMedia.icns file to replace: as if it had been neglected to be included in the update. Speculation, certainly.

Thanks for the post, I did not have access to a 10.7.2 system but found DVDMedia.icns in the same 10.7.3 machine at
Applications > DVD Player > (Show Package Contents) Contents > Resources > Art
Hope it helps

Great tip -- thanks! I thought I was losing my mind. I'll pay it forward.
I don't have access to a 10.7.2 instance, so I took a slightly different approach:
1. I navigated via Finder to /Applications/DVD Player/Contents/Resources
2. I opened up my Time Machine backup.
3. I scrolled back to a date before my 10.7.3 upgrade and restored the DVDMedia.icns file to my desktop.
4. I then dragged that file back into the /Applications/DVD Player/Contents/Resources folder (I had to authenticate to do so)

I've also lost my icons. Has anyone logged this in radar?

At least on 10.7.3, the DVDMedia.icns file can be found here: /Applications/DVD Player.app/Contents/Resources/Art/DVDMedia.icns Copying or linking it into the parent folder of "Art" should be a workaround for .dvdmedia folder bundles having a blank generic icon, though I haven't tested it.

Copy the file into the "Resources" level folder. That fixes the missing Finder icon problem.
