This problem got me a while ago, and discussed here.

The problem is the mount permissions/capabilities of the mount point. Try re-mounting with 'rw, exec, suid,' and you will probably find that 'find' finds what you would like found (sorry!... Could not resist....).

mount with '-defaults' is quite restricted....even root cannot execute commands. You will have to dive into the depths of 'man find' to find....etc. etc.
