A sata disc only shows up when plugged in. There is are a few noauto lines in it. The traditional one doesn't actually do anything and doesn't show up in directory trees. I added it myself trying to user mount a cifs nas without involving samba and have just left it there. I haven't bothered finding out what goes on in terms of disc mounting now as it works but understand traditional mounting lines are out or on their way out. So once again is this a bug? I suspect not.

I haven't been following this, in fact it popped up in the middle of a
thread about dual monitors!

I seem to recall that someone (in this thread?) was asking about
automounting devices.  In KDE, the Device Notifier settings (Right-click
on Device Notifier in the system tray) gives you options to automount
removable devices.  Does that help?  I would have thought that a
hot-plug device would look, to the system, like a removable drive.
Maybe I'm wrong.

Incidentally, is it deliberate that you don't mount your NAS at login?
Just wondered why.  I have some remote mounts, but they are always
mounted at login.  I also use a small folderview targetting remote
drives - very useful.

By the way, the top-posting wasn't helpful, nor was the fact that you
didn't leave any useful quote, so I couldn't tell what had gone before.
