We have a little issue with this devices:

Klicking in Lancelot "Computer", the fixed and the removable devices are displayed. However, I only can mount the removable devices. Attempting to mount one of the fixed devices we get
The requested device can not be accessed.
org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.PermissionDenied: Device has /dev/sdb5 volume.ignore set to TRUE. Refusing to mount.
We presume, that we have to set the /dev/sdb5 volume.ignore to FALSE. The question is, where do we find this setting ?

Thanks in advance for an indication. 

By the way, Dolphin do not even shows the fixed devices.
