Add 'user' to the 4th column for the line in /etc/fstab that is your usb drive.

I'm not sure if that makes much sense, so here's my entry for that device.

(Mine is /dev/sdc)

/dev/sdc /mnt/thumb msdos user,noauto 0 0

Replace /dev/sdc with your device name. Then, remount it. Make sure you edit the file as root.

Hope this helps.
