Hard Drive Permissions

I have a parititon on my internal drive and an external drive which I cannot fully access as all users. Here is what I have for fstab for each

/dev/hdc4 /mnt/all auto rw,exec,nosuid,nodev,user 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/external auto rw,exec,nosuid,nodev,user 0 0

I want both of these to be fully accessible by all users. Right now i can read but I can't write to it. I posted a message last week and the person told me to do what I did up there, I thought that it had fixed the problem but it didn't. Thanks for helping!
