Unhappy Nautilus slow-mo (Reads too much)

In Fedora, my Nautilus worked just fine, but in Mandrake 9.2, Nautilus is slow. Every time I try to use it (opening any directory, etc) it attempts to read from my DVD-ROM (CD-ROM1) and then it takes about 15 seconds just to open. In Fedora it didn't try to read from my CD-ROM1 and it opened instantly.

Help please.


Lord! Even when I change a irectory in it it takes this long!

I've "fixed" the problem. Forget this post.
