What you need to do is specify: 

mount -o mode=0775,uid=1000,gid=1000

or something along those lines -- replacing 1000 with your appropriate 
uid and gid, of course.

It's a bad idea to use mode 0777 (security risks).

If you specify user, it's also a good idea to specify nosuid and
nodev.  If you haven't figured it out yet, paste the relevant line
from your fstab and the specific mount command you're using here and
we can maybe spot the problem.
