This is what I get as root.
ps aux | grep kded

Neither show. When I add mounted DVD and unmount they show with red X.
Inserting dvd does nothing. Also shown are create data dvd with k3b and video
dvd with k3b. When I insert dvd never get this menu.

Another thing I found today is if I su to root, mount the dvd
(/dev/hdc /media/dvdrecorder it mounts read only and then I can see the dvd
by using Konquer, going to /media/dvdrecorder. but the icon does not show up
on desktop or under my computer.

Could it be some kind of permissions problem?
