udev-notify is a simple free software app for Ubuntu that runs in background and shows visual notifications when you plug-in a new device - Camera, Joystick, Removable Drive, Media Player etc... It uses udev for monitoring hardware changes, and NotifyOSD, notification-daemon, xfce4-notifyd or knotify (whichever you have installed) for the notifications.
