"Permisson denied" while writing to a ntfs format usb stick


Hi,

I'm working on Debian Squeese (testing) and already have installed "ntfs-3g" and "ntfs-config" packages. I also have selected the item "Enable write support for external device" in ntfs-config.

Now my usb stick, 8g, ntfs format which was formated by mkfs.ntfs, could be mounted read-only automatically. It always said "Permission denied" while I'm trying to write to it.

How can I resolve this problem? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks for your attention.

I've tried
Code:
mount -o remount,rw,user /dev/sdb1
but it didn't work.

Science it's a usb stick, I would not like to modify "/etc/fstab" file.

This could be resolved by manual mount:
Code:
# mount -t ntfs-3g -o uid=<uid>,gid=<gid> /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
where <uid> and <gid> are the numerical uid and gid.

But how to do with auto mount?
