Mounting media - 8.10 Intrepid

How does the mdia mounting in 8.10 Intrepid work?
It seems that it mounts when the taskbar icon 'Renectly mounted media (or something like that) is 
clicked and then the item itself is clicked - which then opens it it Dolphin?!! Why is thee no 
option about how or with what to open it? I wanted to watch a DVD and had to first open Xine then 
  play the DVD.
Also, how does one unmount a mounted media? There is no 'safely remove' menu item anywhere. I did 
find in Dolphin an entry for the DVD and could right click on that and choose' Eject' but as soon 
as the DVD drawer opened it closed again - one needs to have real good reflexes to get the disk 
out before the drawer closes again!

Really wanted to like Intrepid but I think I shall wait until January when KDE 4.2 comes out.
Or perhaps I will install another WM - maybe Xfce and then just use the KDE apps that I like/need.



P.S. Shame that they have crippled Konqueror in KDE
