I believe that subdirectories under the /media directory are intended for use 
with removeable storage only e.g. flash drives, therefore they may be treated 
differently than other mountpoints.

Try creating a mountpoint under /mnt, this is where permanent user storage is 
often placed. Other possible locations might be under /opt or /srv depending on 
your distribution.
