USB devices are handled by desktop environment, no need to write rules 
for that. What DE are you using?

In GNOME/KDE as soon as you plug any USB storage device it is 
automatically mounted under "/media/device_label". Likewise, the disk is 
umounted/disconnected as soon as you select "safely disconnect or safely 
remove" from icon desktop context menu or any desktop applet.

But do not mix static mount points (those defined in "/etc/fstab") with 
udev rules neither "/media" mout points to avoid conflicts. Just choose 
what method best suits your needs (the static one -using fstab file and 
manually calling mount/umount as required- or dynamic one -letting udev 
to handle the whole mount/umount process-).
