If I am understanding your question corectly, you are wanting your device to stop opening a window every time you plug it in. I am not entirely familiar with RHL but I am sure that there is a setting that allows you to keep the disks from automounting. To mount it you should be fine with opening your file manager and clicking on the drive. It should mount it and let you use the drive like any other time.
