Floppy not recognized and CD wrongly identified by media:/

I use the "Storage Media" kicker applett with HAL and it's working
very well, with two exceptions:
The floppy is not seen in media:/.
The CD-ROM drive is identified as cd writer.
The output of lshal shows that the floppy drive is correctly seen
by HAL and the cd drive is identified as cdrom.
I can put a device link for the floppy drive on the desktop.
Maybe related to the problem with the cd: I have a DVD (/dev/hdc)
and a CD-ROM (/dev/hdd) on the same IDE. Whatever is used first
shows up as DVD, even if I insert a cd in the cd drive. I fixed
this by putting corresponding .desktop files
in .kde/share/mimelnk/media, but I haven't found a way yet to
force media:/ to identify my cd drive correctly.
