Probably you changed the "preferences" in your window manager to turn
off automount. Or some update did it for you. This is one of the first
things I do, since having the system, WM or hal, checking for new media
can create problems with burning.
There was a discussion of this on another list, the mode of the burner
can get changed, streaming can be interrupted, etc.
If you want to enable that behavior, start in Preferences, I don't
remember if it's Hardware or Look&Feel, but it's there, something like
"mounting of media or such."
