CD(-RW) drive not available in GNOME or KDE


I have a cd burner installad on my machine and it is not visible in GNOME through nautilus or in the storage media in KDE (e.g. system:/media/hdc). The device at /dev/hdc can be mounted manually. I'm still investigating but I think it changed after one of the last kernel updates.

I was just wondering if anyone was having this problem.

Best regards,

Thanks for the suggestion but I still haven't figured this out. I can't access the dvd-rom drive through the system:/media/hdc url in KDE and it doesn't show up as a device in GNOME.

The device seems to be detected and recognised by hal and I can see its details in the hal-device-manager. The recent kernel update (2.6.19-1.2911.6.4.fc6) did mention something about cd-rom drives but I have updated everything and nothing has changed.

Any help or information from people with a similar problem would be appreciated,

Thanks in advance,
