    I guess it is using the media.ascx control available under umbraco>create>media.ascx, :

    <asp:ListBox id="nodeType" Runat="server" Width="350px" CssClass="bigInput" Rows="1" SelectionMode="Single"></asp:ListBox><br />

    Are you using the Structure Extensions package?  This allows you to control which document/media types can be created at the Root level (Media or Content node).  When you first install the package, nothing is allowed to be created at the root until you tell it.  So visit one of your media types, for example Folder (Settings -> Media Types -> Folder), click the Structure tab and select the "Allowed at root" checkbox to fix.
