I use sometimes some Linux distros, e.g. Ubuntu, and I like the feature they have to add a desktop shortcut to every removable device that is plugged in on desktop - for example, when a DVD is inserted, a new icon for that appears on desktop, and with that I can access, eject etc.
I would like to have the same feature for Windows - specifically for Windows XP Professional SP3, but it is interesting to know the solution for other Windows versions...
PS1: I would like to have "dynamic shortcuts", i.e, shortcutes that appears on desktop when the removable device is inserted and that disappears when it is removed.
PS2: I'm talking about CD/DVD media and massive storage devices mainly.
