devices menu in konqueror gone after upgrade

well hello guys, I've just upgraded konqueror, KDE.
I was using a very old version, and in that version there was a menu called devices where my cdroms drives were visible, and I could mount eject ... as normal.

Now that I installed the latest version the tag devices remains but there is nothing in there, I've tried to bind it to the /media folder, but the drives don't appear...
neither the hard disks or ipod also...

I'm sure is a missconfiguration but I'm a bit tired so I can not look for any good, can anybody just tell me what to look or what to do?...

well thanks for the answer, but I did get ti back, just put at the URL the following under the shortcut for devices:


note the colon before the slash.

I remember that. Never could get back. So I ended up right clicking on the desktop and selected Create New > Link to Device > Selected cdrom icon and set the configuration of the device in the tabs of the new icon device.

See if that will work.

Now since it is using the media folder I am guessing in /etc/fstab where the cdrom link is, one of the options is managed. If you remove the managed option then you can change the mount point to what ever you want in /etc/fstab.
