konqueror won't open media:/sda1

I've instaled Kubunto a few weeks ago. Since then I've been having a problem with any pendisk I try to use. After pluging in the pendrive to the usb, automount 'mounts' my pen correctly but when konqueror does the autorun thing, like it does with the cdrom, it says that cant find media:/sda1.
I know kubuntu mounts my pen correctly because I can access it through a terminal, or opening folder /media/PEN/ in konqueror, but I would like it to autorun my pen, like window$ does.

Any ideas...

PS: sorry for my english...

Okay.. as you wrote, your pen stick is getting auto mount, can you access that later via media:/sda1 in konqueror ?

Also, check the fstab entry for the name of mount point. is it set to sda1 ? I think, it should be /media/pen for device mounted at /dev/sda1.

I've been checking my fstab file, like you said, and in fact, there was no entry for the pendisk, so I added one as /dev/sda1 and it worked perfectly!!! thanks!
