a lighter hammer :
mv /usr/libexec/devkit-disks-daemon /usr/libexec/devkit-disks-daemon.hide
and also kill the running deamons if you want it to work before next boot:
COLUMNS=720 ps -eo pid,ppid,uname,tty,stat,etime,time,pcpu,args | egrep -ie 'dev.*kit' | fgrep -v grep
1623 1 root ? S 21:00:54 00:00:22 0.0 /usr/libexec/devkit-power-daemon
1987 1 root ? S 21:00:36 00:00:00 0.0 /usr/libexec/devkit-disks-daemon
1996 1987 root ? S 21:00:34 00:00:00 0.0 devkit-disks-daemon: not polling any devices
kill 1996 1987
works without any annoying error pop-ups.
