There appears to be a slight hitch in KDE which, now that the holiday 
season has (almost) come to a close, may be fixed in the foreseeable future.

I can plug in my USB sticks and get that menu you write of but when I 
click on Open with Dolphin....nothing happens. I can do this repeatedly 
(by removing the stick and re-inserting it) with same result.

However, what I have learnt to do is to simply reboot the system 
(haven't tried to just re-login again) and then Dolphin comes up and 
reads the USB stick.

I have no idea what is causing this, but this behaviour does not worry 
me now as it did when it first occurred when I thought that the sky was 
falling in :-) .
