What package is responsible for auto-mounting cdrom and opening Burn window for CDR?


I unchecked alot of stuff during a Fedora install to make the install lighter and I managed to lose two of the functions I need: having cdrom mount automatically when inserted and having that burn window where u can drap and drop files into when a CDR is inserted. Which packages are responsible for these two functions? I think it's part of the windowing system...

Not true, in Fedora when you insert a CD it does get auto-mounted, a CD icon appears on your desktop after it does that. I lost that functionality when I unchecked some packages from the Sound & Video category. I reinstalled without messing with the defaults and I got that ability back.
