Reading files from a windows mounted drive


I have succesfully mounted windows on linux etch. However, I can only access files through the console under root. When I copy files from the drive to my home folder, they are locked and I cannot access them. Is there any way to give user read permissions for my mounted windows drive?
I have tried chmod and everything and I cant seem to get it to work. Please help! Thank you.
