Question DVDRom doesn't automount whereas CDRom or DVD-Video does (Suse 10.2 KDE)


I think everything's in the subject
I've searched a lot before posting this, I really can't see what it is...

When I insert CDRom or DVDVideo or USB drive, it is automatically mounted.
When I put a DVDRom, I have to do something like "mount /dev/hda /mnt/whereiwant" and it's pretty annoying.
I think it's a problem in the KDE automounting desktop applet, but I'm not sure.

Please Help !

PS : forgive my Eenglische
