Help with writing mounting program.

I'm a lousy programmer and know some bash and python. I want a program that automaticly  mounts new drives available. Most important is my dvd-writer but I'd also like it to check for external disks through sshfs. This is more or less what I want (in pseudo-python).

def mount_hd():
  try:
    sshfs user@host.myftp.org:/home /mnt/xhd
  except MountError:
    pass
def mount_rom():
  try:
    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
  except MountError:
    pass
while True: 
  mount_hd()
  mount_rom()

Of course it would be better to call the program when the computer detects new hardware instead of having it running in the background. Any ideas?
