Desktop Media detect USB drives, fixed drives (ie. your hard drives), CD/DVD drives, network drives, and RAM disk drives. For removable media such as USB drives and CD/DVD drives), it will only add the drive to your desktop if it is present. So if you have a CD/DVD drive, but no disc is present, you won't see the icon on your desktop. Desktop Media automatically detects new or existing media and adds the icons to your desktop, it has the ability to create soft links (shortcuts) or hard links (symbolic links), it supports removable, fixed, network, CD/DVD, and RAM disk drives, it has the ability to ignore user-specified drive letters, and has the option to save the positions of the icons.
