Inserting either a cd or dvd into my dvd rom the drive does not automount but as soon as brasero is started Caja opens and automounts the drive. Once caja has automounted this way it will continue to automount any media in the drive until the machine is restarted.
IMHO there is a service not being started. Should autofs be installed as it is not on my system?

Looks similar to what's described in this thread. It's reproducible even in a virtual machine: the ISO won't mount unless you run Brasero. And just as I thought, the culprit is the same - the buggy heap of dung named gvfs 1.16. After I've downgraded gvfs to 1.12, the automount came back.
I'm getting the same problem here, not just with DVDs but with any optical media. Man, it's a pain in the neck--but thanks for mentioning the Brasero work-around. That's what I'll be doing until things get back on track.
Update 7 seems to have screwed a lot of things up. I wish I would have waited before installing it.
EDIT: Pressing the physical eject button while a disc is mounted no longer opens the drive. Right-clicking on the desktop's mounted icon and selecting the eject option gets around this.
Fornhamfred, yes I did and it works for CD/DVD removable media but not for others. For SD and CF you need to use some other userspace application. I have the impression a media change flag is not being set or ignored and it takes an application to poll the device rather then depending on an auto sense flag.
IMMHO, I would scarcely call this "solved". There is a temporary kludge to get past it but hardly a solution to the problem.
