I'm sure, but when root mounts it under Linux it does set permissions for who
can use it with which permissions. I've had similar problems automounting
Windows partitions by root, and then writing to them from my normal user

When it's mounted, try if you can create files under your root login. If you
can, then it's probably local permissions that are biting you here.
