I have an interesting issue (not a problem, not even a glitch, just a confusing inconvenience): Whenever I stick a perfectly normal audio-CD - which is detected and makes all sorts of things happen that I have specified in various configurations here and there - but I also always get a prompt that the audio CD couldn't be mounted. (Usually I find these while enjoying the hell out of the CD... ) I have a feeling the cause could be closely related to yours.
Alas, my USB-stick and external harddrive mount and fire up Nautilus just fabulously. In Gnome, that is. KDE is another can o' worms...

After installing it, everything was fine for weeks. When I run Disk Utility now I can see my USB drive in the list, but when I click "mount filesystem" I get the same error as before.
However, I have just launched the other one (Disk Manager) and now suddenly I get the following message:
Removing unknown devices from the configuration file?
I cannot find any existing block devices corresponding to the following devices: /dev/sdf1 on /media/Iomega_HDD
It is advisable to remove them in order to avoid failed mount at start-up. Select the ones you want to remove.
Don't show me this warning in the future
[Cancel] [Remove selected]
Of course I clicked "Remove selected" and now everything is back to normal, so it seems like my problem is solved!
Thanks for reminding me of this extra utility that I installed - I had completely forgotten about it. It's strange though that everything worked fine for weeks, until yesterday this error popped up. Something must have messed up my configuration files.
