Bug#418658: Can't mount USB floppy via KDE+hal+pmount
Ok let me do the talking too.
I had this exact problem, just few days ago. dmesg would list my
devices, I could see them under /dev/sd*, I could see them when I
looked, but they were just not "labeled".
That is they would not mount, or show me the mounting dialog. And just
before I went on and added them manually into my fstab (I did this
with Slackware once, worked great).
I just wanted to see if everything was working fine under Gnome, (my
default DE is KDE), everything worked fine, they were auto-mounting, I
mounted my driver, everything worked fine. At that point I was 100%
positive it was due to KDE.
I logged out of Gnome, went back to KDE, and guess what? Everything
was working fine on KDE too. Yes that could sound like a weirdest fix
ever, but that's how I got it working on my machine.
