Disk type display on desktop

I configured my desktop to show device icons. I only checked audio cd, blank cd, blank dvd, and DVD video disk. When I insert a disk into the drive, none of these show up on the desktop. WTF? How do I configure it to show an icon reflecting the disk that I inserted? I know it's possible.

RE: Disk type display on desktop

Check in system:/media to see if the CD appears there also. If not, then you may have a problem with HAL/DBUS.
