[opensuse] External USB CD/DVD-RW Driver Not Working
openSUSE 12.1 x86_64 3.1.0-1.2-desktop GNOME3 3.2.1

I have an external USB CD/DVD drive. This drive has always 'just
worked' in openSUSE 11.3 & 11.4. However, under 12.1, the drive doesn't
seem to participate as a removable storage device. It does not appear
in Nautilus when a disc is inserted or raise any prompt when a blank
disc is inserted.

My user is a member of the "cdrom" group.

Bus 001 Device 011: ID 152e:2507 LG (HLDS) PL-2507 IDE Controller

If I power-on the drive I see the following in dmesg -
[94696.818181] usb 1-2.6: new high speed USB device number 11 using

Do I need to twiddle something to get GNOME to manage this device as a
removable media device?
