Konquerer not reading media


Lately, whenever I put in media into my cd/dvd drives and I try to read what's on them in Konquerer, it shows nothing.
When I try to read the media using Nautilus, that works.

I was wondering what would make Konquerer suddenly unable to read what's on cd's/dvd media?

The apps that I use to play the media (XMMS, Xine, etc) read the media just fine though.

This is my fstab entries just in case you need it:
Code:
cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda2            /                    reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 1
/dev/hda1            swap                 swap       defaults              0 0
proc                 /proc                proc       defaults              0 0
sysfs                /sys                 sysfs      noauto                0 0
usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      noauto                0 0
devpts               /dev/pts             devpts     mode=0620,gid=5       0 0
/dev/cdrecorder      /media/cdrecorder    subfs      noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder2     /media/cdrecorder2   subfs      noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0             /media/floppy        subfs      noauto,fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
none                 /subdomain       subdomainfs noauto         0 0

Both Gnome and KDE kep mime lists of what application to use when you click on a file with a particular extension. For example in my Gnome when I click on a .txt file it is displayed with gedit. In KDE when I click on a .txt file it is displayed with kwrite.

I would look for this problem by checking check your KDE mime lists. You can work with your KDE mime lists by clicking on control center -> KDE components -> file associations. The file extensions you are interested will be in the media subsection.

@ linux-Hawk, I never thought of that. But if a wire were loose, why would it work fine only in Nautilus?

@ jailbait, I just checked it and everything looks fine. Konquerer is listed first for opening mounted/unmounted CD's/DVD's as is the floppy drive and for removable media.
