This is a bit embarrassed to admit I don't know how this works but I don't.
Up until recently one of our systems would simply open a CDROM when it was
inserted in the drive.
It does not now - with no apparent changes of configuration - instead a popup
appears on the desktop showing a stop sign - titled 'Error' - message 'Not
Authorized' and an OK button to dismiss.
If I use the file manager and explore 'computer' I can see the disk in the drive
but it is not mounted. Selecting 'mount' using the right button menu results in
the above error dialogue appearing.
I think a configuration file has been corrupted due to either unexpected power
cycling or a character being inserted in the wrong file, when trying to recover
the screen from the screen saver.
