On my system I have three of those device mount icons and they all work even 
though they all say `Location: / (devices)'. From comparing the properties of 
yours with mine, it seems that the name is derived from the path. My cdrom 
name reads `devcdrommntcdrom' and the path for my cdrom is /mnt/cdrom. Is the 
mount point for your cdrom at /cdrom? The config file for the paths seems to 
be at ~/.kde/share/config/kdfrc
