strange, i cannot reproduce this issue on my machine with f7 + f7 update. It
works for me.
You should please check if Startup services whether Media Notifier Daemon and
KDED Media Manager are running.
Notice: the device icon does not show up in kde panel, but on KDE desktop
This is NOT A BUG. It was due to a misconfiguration on the machine.
The file: /etc/hal/fdi/information/media-check-disable-DVDW_TS_L532M.fdi
contains the entry:
<merge key="storage.media_check_enabled" type="bool">false</merge>
Changing 'false' to 'true' fixed the issue.
Sorry for the wild goose chase.
Notice: The device icon can be made to show up either on the desktop (via
"configure desktop" in the KDE dektop context menu), or on the panel (via
"configure storage media..." in the storage media applet), or both.
