OK, will do a me too to the launch pad thing - have never done it yet!

Thanks for the exploration. Glad to know that things seem to be working nicely on Natty. So - I understand we can be optimistic for the 11.10 version

I also just checked with Lucid - and same as you: Data DVD and CD work, while the Audio CD goes undetected (no icon appears in Gnome) although I can play it with VLC.

I am still curious about Media DVD on Maverick - will check tonight.
