When I insert a 'USB Flash Drive' it immediately tries to open in 'VLC' even though my media settings are set to 'ask what to do'.....all other media is also set to 'ask what to do'.
I have to close the 'VLC' application before I then proceed to open the 'Flash Drive' from 'Computer' I also have to do the same with any 'Discs' I use, Browse C: Drive (Browse your Virtual C: drive) also opens with 'VLC'.I tried opening with alternative applications and each time the screen reverted to just my background picture and all the icons disappeared but I was able to open the menu and shut the pc down but I was unable to unmount the 'Flash Drive' normally beforehand. I tried to change the options in various ways using the 'Preferred Applications' but it made no difference the 'Flash Drive' still opened with 'VLC'.
I created a new user and everything worked fine it mounted/unmounted ok and it opened the 'Flash Drive' automatically to see the files. After giving it some thought I decided to uninstall 'VLC' and the everything worked just fine and opened the way it should so I assumed the problem was with 'VLC' but then I tried installing 'Banshee' and the same thing happens.any ideas??
(I tried asking on the Linux forum but it appears as though they have maybe forgotten me)
