Cannot use GUI to open/list a mounted hard drive (linux Ultimate Edition 2.8)


My version of linux has a bunch of GUI icons on the left hand side of the screen (vertical). Most are links to programs. You click the GUI icon and the program opens. When I mount my internal hard drive it adds a GUI icon for the drive. The problem is when I click on this new GUI icon it automatically loads K3b and gives an error message instead of giving me a list of what is on my drive. I deleted the program K3b and tried un-mounting then re-mounting the drive. I then tried the new GUI icon for the drive and now it automatically opens Dragon Player. Any ideas?

What do you see when you navigate to the drive in a file manager, such as Dolphin or Nautilus?
