Its the vfat filesystem, it doesn't support what you are trying to do.
You can use 'umask' in your ~/fstab file to let set access for Debian
/dev/sdd1 /mnt/usb vfat umask=000,user,noauto 0 0
The umask=000 is a not necessarily the best way,(full access for
everyone) you can use uid & gid. I set the pass to 0 so there would be
not attempt at checking the vfat file system.
