It is the same or different disks. I don't how to explain this. But if
XFCE comes up with the background I chose (a globe) the audio icon does
not show up on the desktop. However, If the display on the  screen is a
mouse with the words XFCE the icon for the audio shows up and thew CD
can be played. In the second case there is a display of my home
directory on the desktop. I don't know what causes this to appear
sometimes and other times not. Can anyone explain this behavior?
