KDE3.5 eject no longer ejects.

This is my first posting here. I am a Gentoo user. Recently, I installed KDE4 on one of my machines, just to test it. Afterwards, I can no longer eject CD's or DVD's by right clicking on the icon in KDE 3.5.9. This functionality works fine with XFCE on the same system. What I'd like to know is which file I have to check or edit to make get that functionality back. I posted the same question on the Gentoo forums, but I get a feeling I'll get a more accurate and timely reply by posting the same question here.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

Blessed be!

Doesn't solve the problem but temp solution

I will find a solution but for now try on shell typing
#this is to mount a device
# cdrom is generic but whatever your drive is called up it where "cdrom" is

mount /dev/cdrom

# this is to unmount a device

umount /dev/cdrom

tell me if this works
