can't find database created by workbench

Hi. I created a database schema using the workbench, and then created a database from it and entered a small amount of data. This (obviously) shows up in the workbench.

But, when I try to view the database from mysql, I can't find it. The command "show databases" returns information_schema, test.

I believe I'm logged in as root in both cases and I also believe I'm connected to localhost in both cases. When I look at my the database directory on the computer I see all the databases there:
- dvd_collection (the sample I created in the workbench)
- performance_schema (from the installation of mysqld)
- test (also from the installation)

Note that the "show databases" command listed information_schema, not performance_schema.

Incidentally, test shows up in the workbench, but not performance_schema. I suppose the latter is intentionally hidden.

So, why can't I see dvd_collection?
