Asus a6km laptop & GNOME mount issue

I'm having problems with my ASUS A6KM laptop. I'm running FedoraCore6 updated and the removable devices are not working... are not mounting most of the time.

The situation is like this, if I insert a CD or DVD in the drive, it doesn't show up on the Desktop or in Computer, gnome-mount is not working. I think it does this when I'm using the computer for some time... if I reboot the computer and leave the CD or DVD in the drive, it mounts it ok, and it even works a few times if I remove it and put it back in. And then again after some time it's not mounting anymore. The same thing happens with USB stick. Sometimes it shows up on the desktop, most of the time it doesn't.

I believe this is not that GNOME related issue, probably a kernel or something. But I'd like to debug this... I want to know how to fix this !?

It seems to me that maybe gnome-mount is not functioning correctly, or there is a problem with a driver, kernel module. Maybe two drivers are trying to mount the removable device and there is a conflict... I don't know.

Anyone ?

Hm, I'll try to use autofs then.
But I really don't know why gnome-mount is not working here...
