You should be able to get user access to the device by creating a proper udev 
rule for it.  I do this with the following ifpdev.rules file which is placed 
in the /etc/udev/rules.d directory.  I use a group called storage and then 
add my user to that group.

I don't use ubuntu, so I am not sure what kind of permissions or groups they 
use to provide user access to removeable devices, but you could set the group 
permissions to another group as necessary.
