Do you actually have CD mounted?

Unlike the old desktop icons that showed up all the time, the icons in the "My Computer" only show if the drive is actually present.

Since upgrading to 9.1 from 9.0 I have this annoying "My Computer" icon on
my desktop that appears to do nothing useful.

If I click on it it brings up Konqueror in a small window on the url
"drives:/". But nothing shows in the window. If I right click on the
window and try to create a new device it pops up the dialog to let me
configure the device, but when I try to apply it, it says "Writing to drives
is not supported".

I have tried to research this, but "Konqueror" and "drives" and "My
Computer" searches didn't help.

What is this thing and what is it supposed to do?

It contains the "Magically Generated" Icons for Hotplugging devices
ie. USB/firewire cds/harddrives

OK thanks. That's what it's *supposed* to contain. Mine contains nothing,
and I'd like to fix it.
