    Default Can't access cd drive

    Hi,

    Dolphin doesn't display my CD drive. I insert a disk and nothing happens, 'Recently plugged devices' shows nothing, and under media there is no entry for the CD drive. What to do?

    System: 11.2/KDE/64bit

    TIA

    Open a console, and type

    lshal -m
    Then insert a data CD or DVD. Watch the output. For reference I get
    Start monitoring devicelist:
    -------------------------------------------------

    Does your Doplhin display the 'Places' panel? (ie View > Panel > Places enabled)

    Open k3b
    Can you manage cd/dvd burning in there?

    When inserting a CD lshal -m returns:

    Code:
    11:26:08.010: storage_model_CDDVDW_SH_S222A property storage.removable.media_available = true
    11:26:08.051: storage_model_CDDVDW_SH_S222A property storage.cdrom.write_speeds = {'1764'}
    The CD drive is not listed in dolphin under 'Places'.

    K3B identifies the CD.

    It's a data CD (actually the CD I used to burn & install 11.2 ISO image).

    If you have konqueror installed, with a data cd/dvd in the tray, try typing this url:
    sysinfo:/
    Do you see the disk icon present in the 'Disk Information' section?
    If not, try launching konqueror as superuser with
    kdesu konqueror
    and do the same. I'm just trying to find out whether this is specific to Dolphin, or a possible PolicyKit issue...

    I tried an audio CD and dolphin added it to Places. Then another data disk, which was also identified by dolphin. I tested 8 data disks, 4 of which where seen by dolphin, the other 4 were ignored. I formatted one of the unidentified disks, and then it appeared on Recently plugged but not in dolphin. Then I burned to it the same ISO file - openSUSE 11.2/64 - and it was corectly displayed in dolphin's Places. This is very strange.

    It is strange because everything I throw at 11.2 just works. It's awesome!
