Yes, then this will mostprobably be fixed also for your drive
(besides a lot of other things) when you update/install 10.2.

If you're familiar with compiling and building rpms you could
of course also try to patch your hal with the patch from 
Danny (http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/hal/2006-May/005151.html)
for this problem.

Have fun,
Frank
