Angry Problem in mounting cd rom in KDE

I need for your help to solve a big problem with my KDE desktop.

Every time I try to mount my CD-ROM device with a double click on the corresponding icon on my desktop, the system try to load the application NOATUM and suddenly it gives me a application crash report. How can I configure the system to load Konqueror when I double click on the CD-ROM icon. Please note that, at the moment, I have installed on my pc the mandrake 9.1 distribution!

Thank you in advance to whom will aid me to solve this problem.

If noatun was spawned, then it was an audio CD. If it is a data CD, with a filesystem, then Konqueror would be the one that loads. Why noatun is crashing, I don't know. I use kscd. Somewhere in the Preferences section is the ability to have KDE start any program you specify when an audio CD is inserted. I set mine to kcsd with 'Start Playing Automatically', and it is now seamless.

thank you very much to all. In effect, as suggested by RoalledOat, all began when I configure the system to enable the automatic start of kcsd when the drive read an audio cd. Now I have solved the problem changing the file association for opening the directory. I don't know why, but the first application for this task was noatum!!!!!

Thanks again and keep you well!
