If this happens again, try the following:
1) Check to see if gnome-volume-manager is running
$ ps aux | grep gnome-volume-manager

2) If it isn't running, start it with " gnome-volume-manager & "
3) See if things return to normal
I think just logging out/ logging in to gnome would achieve more or less
the same result - rebooting wasn't necessary ;)
