Re: data CD/DVD not seen

I can confirm this behavior. My initial though is that some udev event is not triggered, so basically gvfs doesn't know a disc has been inserted. this is not expected behavior, but we do have a couple of work arounds for now: 1. just starting Disk Manager is enough to trigger the mounts. You don't h...

Good point I overlooked.


However, I can't get a usb to work either, with either winxp or mx17 guests.
