Are you unmounting it first, or trying to mount it again when the
system's already mounted it inside /media?

Other notes:  There's remount options to change the parameters of
already mounted filesystems.  Make sure directory permissions are world
executable and readable, including all parent directories, and file
permissions are world readable.

Gnome in case that's important to the thread.)
