Do you have a GUI? Since 3.1.0, you can remove the CD drive, which you apparently did. Now you can't add a CD (ISO) when you don't have a drive to put it in. Use the GUI to get a better idea of what changed.

In that case, experiment with the CLI, check up on the manual for the changes and all, and stumble on the fix.

With VirtualBox 3.0 it was totally easy, why does this work with version 3.1 not so good?

Because of the changes in the storage system. You can have 0-4 CD drives, remove the IDE controller, a lot more than we used to be able to do.
