making a mounted memory stick rw

I can mount my 2 memory sticks what is funny is one is mounted as msdos the other as vfat.
in my fstab I mounted the msdos with the umask000 to get rw on boot.

However if the stick is not plugged in at time of boot I can only read the information from my user account.
Is there a line I can add when I manually mount the drive to solve this issue and make the mounted drive rw?
