udev usb permissions


I am trying to restrict the ability for anyone other than root to have access to any external usb memory sticks. I have tried creating a udev rule with the following:
KERNEL=="sdb1", MODE="0600", OPTIONS+="last_rule"

But it doesn't work. After implementing this, it doesn't allow even root access to the usb mem stick. Any ideas from anyone?

Well, then you know UDEV honors fstab settings, what is your fstab line for this device?
