Will the forthcoming Elementary Freya automount removable media, optical discs and usb devices?

1 Answer 1


Yes, removable media is getting auto mounted. Contrary to other OS the file manager won't popup if you insert a media. Apparently there is no option to set the default action for audio CDs or DVDs, like open them in VLC or sth.

  • This is a security conscious decision. Auto-running media exposes the potential for security breaches.
