Is it possible to ensure that the files on the device will be readable and
writable by the user who mounted the USB drive?
I have done the following, and it may be working:
1. mkdir /media/BLUE
2. labelled the USB drive "BLUE"
3. chmod 777 /media/BLUE
4. in fstab:
LABEL=BLUE /media/BLUE ext2 defaults,users,rw,auto 0 0
So far so good. I am not sure this is doing what I want, however, as I
still see the owner of some files as "1000".
Thank you again,

there is no ground whatsoever for supposing it is true.
