12 Thanks for asking -- you just solved two annoying problems for me :o)
14 An internal CD/DVD player is not a removable drive, but it does use
15 removable media. A USB stick is a removable drive but does not use
16 removable media.
18 A number of gnome apps are far more configurable than their settings
19 menu implies. To access some hidden settings you need to use the
20 gconf-editor utility, found in Applications::System tools::Configuration
21 Editor, or just type gconf-editor from a command prompt.
23 Navigate to apps::nautilus::preferences and look for several settings
24 relating to media, and experiment with those.
