Re: Only root can write on USB disk

I played with fstab as far as I could, and still no luck. It is still
owned by root. I also found that there are some errors in my dmesg:

[10021.791499] usb-storage 3-1:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected

I also ran fsck on my drive, and it showed me that the dirty bit was on,
and then it made it off. 

this is my fstab line:

/dev/sdh1 /media/mostafa/flash_h1 auto user,rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime 0 0
