Or maybe just Gnome. That could be Gnome Volume Manager. I think it's been 
part of gnome since 2.8, but not too sure. 

It uses HAL/D-bus to listen to various HAL events and mount new devices or 
download pics from the camera,play a CD/DVD,burn a CD, etc...

I haven't seen any stuff from KDE doing HAL/D-bus integration.
But then again I haven't really kept up with what KDE does these days.

Fedora might have some other daemon that does similar thing, maybe with less
