Removable drives will not mount

Forums: 

I recently installed slackware 13.1 32bit version and having problems mounting removable drives. I pluged in my usb drive and did not noticed a flash drive icon appear on the desktop. The system did not say it mounted the drive. I checked the drive in "my computer" , and saw the flash icon in the window browser had a slash going through it. I double ckicked it and nothing happend.

The same thing happens with my dvd drive. A movie dvd was inserted and again no mount notification. I ran serveral media software and none could open it. The dvd-rw icon, again, had a slash going through it. What is causing the removable drive mount failures?B)
