I ran #adduser <username> plugdev in the first place, because that's what the man page said to do, but it said I was already in the plugdev group.
But it seems to be okay now. I tried changing the permissions on /media/sdb1 while the card was mounted, and then they remained after I unmounted it then mounted it again. I don't understand what the problem was, but that seems to have fixed it.
