What's the best and easiest way to mount something that my user can access?

I don't care about local security, I'd love to just have automatic r/w permission when I stick my usb player in or when I stick in a cdrom. What's the easiest way to accomplish this? Links guides?

Thx

You may add a line to /etc/fstab with every device you'd like to mount. Set the option "user" so every user can mount it. You will be automatically be the owner and have proper permissions.
