How do I set Lion to show a DVD/CD on the desktop when they are inserted.  I tried going through System Prefs / CDs & DVDs.


I am cataloging DVD backups and it is annoying to have to go through finder for each disc, when before I could just drag the icon from the desktop into the catalog.


Also, is it normal in Lion not to even see the main hard drive?  I can see it in Lion.




Mac Pro 2.8, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 10gb ram - 1.5tb hd

You can drag the hard drive from the Devices section to your favorites section if that help you out.

It's in the Finder preferences under the "General" section.
