I have these lines in the fstab

# binds
/media/DataNtfs/Music           /home/can/Music                  none    rw,bind 
/media/DataNtfs/Pictures        /home/can/Pictures               none    rw,bind

you can add screenshots now, if you like. – belacqua Feb 6 '13 at 16:45
Thank you. I added. – Can Feb 7 '13 at 22:16
add to /etc/fstab x-gvfs-show option to each drive you want to hide in nautilus – Victor K Jun 16 '13 at 12:34
  • Mount them elsewhere. /media is automatically added. Mount them in /mnt and they will not appear (unless someone made a udev rule to do so). Nowadays everything seems to be mounted in /media but it used to be so that /mnt was for internal disks and /media for removable discs. No-one is stopping you from using /mnt!

  • Adding the x-gvfs-show as Arhimed pointed out in comments does not seem to work. This bug #1011257 affects both 12.10 and 13.04 and is due to a package that needs to be updated: util-linux.

  • Besides that you can cancel all automounting from dconf-editor:

They are not harddisks and not mounted in /media. They are directories and 'bind'ed to home directory. – Can Jul 3 '13 at 9:01
So? Like I said: change /media/DataNtfs/Music to /mnt/DataNtfs/Music and they will not show in Nautilus Devices pane. Anything in /media is automatically 'mounted' by Nautilus unless you change the dconf setting. – Rinzwind Jul 3 '13 at 9:33
I understand you. I upgraded 13.04 and its okay now. Thanks. – Can Jul 3 '13 at 13:06

I upgraded 13.04 and they gone. I think developers take that as a wrong feature instead of a bug, and they fix it in 13.04. I suggest you to upgrade.

This is my home directory

I liked new look of the nautilus.
