Yes, I see the trend, but I don't know what do with it :( Must have stayed up
too late last night.

I've looked for Configuration/Settings in each multimedia app, but nowhere is
there a setting to stop each app from mounting/loading the contents of the
drive. I know you use Gnome, but perhaps if you could be a bit more specific
about what you would do there, I could translate it into KDE-ese.

I'll try, but I don't know the equivalent KDE names.

In gnome, I go to the control center, and in the "look and feel" section there is an item named "removable drives and media", without icon. This dialog has tabs for storage, multimedia, cameras, pdas, printers and input devices.

Storage has entries for browsing and mounting devices when inserted, or burning blank dvds. The multimedia tab has entries for playing audio cds when inserted, or pay video if a video cd/dvd is inserted, or play music when a portable player is inserted.

You see, it is quite complete, although sometimes I'd like more fine grain.
