Removed sound devices?

Note: Calligra Krita is installed (i believe it’s a kde native app)

OS: openSuse 12.3 32bit
Desktop: gnome
Hardware: HDA Intel, STAC92xx Analog (default audio device) & USB flash drive
Problem occurs: when i connect any usb flash drive

Details:
When i connect any usb flash drive i heard an audible tune, then 2 dialog windows appear titled “Removed Sound Devices”.
Window text is as follows:
"KDE detected that one or more internal devices were removed
Do you want KDE to permanently forget about these devices?
This is the list of devices KDE thinks can be removed

  • Output: HDA Intel, STAC92xx Analog (Default Audio Device)"

I then have the option to check “do not ask again for these devices” with the buttons “manage devices” “no” and “yes”

I’m not sure how to handle this problem…
Thanks for any assistance!
