Bug Description

Since i upgraded my system to Ubuntu 11.10, i am not able to use my USB flash disks, external hard drives and CD-ROM. When i insert a CD or external hard drive or flash disk, it displays a message; "Unable to open a folder for 'name of disc or USB)". Then below this sentence it says; "Failed to execute child process "Rhythmbox-client" (No such file or directory)"

-And ever since i upgraded, my computer is more slow and freezes a lot compared to when i was using the previous version of Ubuntu 11.04. Please help me because this is causing a lot of stress and inconvenience.
