DVD disappears after USB drive connect

I am running MDK 10.1. I just connected a USB drive an now konqueror will not start. Also the icon for my DVD drive has dissapeared. I thought it might be a mount problem so I created /mnt/usb and edited my fstab to look like this:

/dev/hdb1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0,user,nls=iso8859-1,noauto,ro 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto umask=0,noauto,user 0 0

After reboot, I still have the same problem.

dmesg only shows this related message:

"cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!"

It's like it's interpreting /dev/sda1 as /dev/cdrom.

I can browse the USB drive from the command line.

What the heck is going on?

dmesg likely shows it detecting the usb device... anything there?

dmesg shows:

If I turn off the USB drive and restart X I can get back into the DVD drive and konqueror works again. I can't get konqueror to throw an error messege to I don't know what it's looking for.

So, nobody knows what's going on? I can't have an external hard drive and a DVD drive?
