USB device problem with temporary mounting


I started having trouble with everything connected via USB after I tried installing nfs. I got USB access to my scanner and printer back after removing USB. (SAMBA solved the file access problem will enough, so not having nfs isn't an issue)

When I plug my USB mass storage camera into a USB port, the "A new medium has been detected" window asking me what to do about it comes up,
"system:///media/sda1" is not a valid location" (SD card)
""system:///media/sdb1" is not a valid location" (internal camera flash)

If I open in Konqueror:
Go > Media - I can mount either via right-click mount.

If I open the Navigational Panel, the flash memory shows up under Storage Media as 15M and 128M directory trees without my having to mount them manually, and when I unplug the directory trees disappear immediately

Once mounted, I can get access to camera files via Digikam.

Leaving out the fact that I'd rather this worked right, i.e. I plug in USB device, it gives me the open dialogue and then file manager opens... my biggest problem is that Palm PDA sync doesn't work.

I am open to suggestions. I think the above is enough to make it possible to tell what's working and what isn't.

thanks

mistake in above: I removed nfs, NOT USB. Hopefully, the rest of this makes sense now.
