help with udev rules and write permisions

Hi !

I have slackware 12.2. And I am trying to mount automatically my flash when plug it. I wrote this rule :
SUBSYSTEM=="block", ATTR{removable}="1", NAME="%k", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/mount_script /dev/%k /media/%k"
and the flash mounts automatically, but I don't have permissions to write on it. I tried to change the permissions of the file with adding MODE="0777", also MODE="0666" and OWNER="my_user_name", but it didn't worked. I still can't write on my flash.

What I have to do ?
