Unfortunately, this does nothing to address the O.P.'s question about 
photo CDs. However, I thought I'd share this fix for the BUG in KDE that 
assumes any disk inserted needs playing. This is my custom 
/usr/bin/autorun after renaming the original:
[rj at mavis FC3]$ cat /usr/bin/autorun
# This file does nothing but replace the original /usr/bin/autorun
# file (renamed to WAS_autorun) to hopefully stop KDE from bitching
# and moaning and having a walleyed fit over the file not being
# found. To restore to normal, with all the problems attendant with
# some idiotic juke box program taking control of the CDROMs, simply:
# mv /usr/bin/WAS_autorun /usr/bin/autorun
