Maybe my explanation was not clear enough.
Under "Desktop -> Behaviour -> Device Icons" I can select 
"Hard Disk Volume". If I enable these all my partitions' volumes are 
on the desktop which I don't want. If I disable them then even 
removable USB
hard disks aren't placed on the desktop. That is, the system doesn't
distinguish between removable external hard disks and internal hard 
I'd like external hard disk to be handled as "Removable Medium" instead 
"Hard Disk Volume".
