I am attempting to mount my Amazon Kindle, 3rd Edition. It automounts correctly and when I run
mount -l, I get the following output:
/dev/sdg1 on /media/usb0 type vfat (rw,noexec,nodev,sync,noatime,nodiratime) [Kindle]
From this output, it appears to me that I should be able to read and write to the file system.
Unfortunately, when I try to copy any files to the Kindle, I cannot do it as a regular user. I do have pmount setup on my machine, so I'm not sure if that is causing the problem...haven't been able to find any additional information about it in regards to this kind of issue.
Anybody have any suggestions of what I may be missing here? Thank you.

I am using usbmount for my automounting solution. I use pmount so a normal user can mount the device. It appears (after further investigation) that these applications aren't working together. usbmount is doing the automounting, but it is not doing it from the user's perspective. If I pumount the device and then mount it again manually, I can write to the device.
Getting closer, but I'm still not sure how to get usbmount to honor the user. (Maybe I can't?)
