I've been told that this is a bug in KDE, conflicting with the Hardware 
Abstraction Layer (HAL) that it now requires. I had a similar problem 
with other removable (flash drives, etc). I got rid of the problem by 
changing my fstab for the CD drive and the other removable drives under 
  /mnt instead of /media which is where the system was trying to mount 
everything after the update.
