I don't know about the desktop not refreshing, but for the devices, you may 
need to add them in /etc/fstab. I had to do that on one of my systems to make 
sure my flash drive & iPod are recognized. Additionally, you can right-click 
the desktop & add a new device. That works too.

of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get 
people to let them do it to them. 
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who 
must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited
to do it.  
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting 
themselves made President should on no account be allowed to
do the job."
