Check out /etc/fstab and see if there is indeed an entry in there for the device. If there is, then you simply need to adjust the options line to allow read-write access to the device. FYI:
For me, the device reads the filesystem as a Fat32 filesystem. I added the options umask=000,rw,users to the options section for my device, and it works great.
