desktop icons for automounted external USB hard disks

TDE handles external USB hard drives the same as internal
non-USB (ie SATA) drives. After plugging in an external USB
hard drive it only places a device icon to the desktop if
device icons for unmounted/mounted hard disks are enabled.
I don't want to enable those icons because I have ~20 partitions
I don't want to put on the desktop as devices. Still I would
like to have removable USB hard disk icons on the desktop
similarly to flash disks. How can I do it?

In my opinion removable hard disk should be distinguished
from internal non-removable drives in this context.
