KDE devices:/


In KDE's devices:/, my cd writer is shown as a "CD Recorder" with a yellow-cd icon. However, my other cd writer is shown as a normal cd-rom player and my dvd player is also shown as a cd-rom player.
How do I change how these devices show up?

I'm using KDE 3.3.1 on Slackware Linux 10.

Right click on the icon you want to change, choose properties, double click on the icon appearing on the window, choose whatever you like more and OK.

That doesn't work, as it is also the name and not only the icon.

Can you post your /etc/fstab and thr output of
ls -l /dev
This could show if there are some symlinks to the device nodes you're looking for

you can create your own icon by right-clicking on the background and chosing "create new" --> "device"

then you can chose the type of device, his name, the icon, etc...
