Clicking is not automounting. If you for example have your music or photos on 
an external harddisk attached to your computer you have to mount it before 
digikam or amarok can access the media. Nepomuk does als start to scan for 
changed files right after KDE login, so if you are not quick enough, it might 
consider the files gone.
