cd.dvd not in my places

ive noticed in suse 11 kde4, the autorun option ‘recently plugged devices’ 4 actions for this device that pops up in the lower right hand corner after i put in a audio cd or dvd…
if i dont click on one of the actions in the pop up then when go to opensuse start menu and go to the computer tab i wont see the cd in list of my places? why? is this normal? if so how can i get to view the cd there if i dont pick an action??
