SubjectVFAT Filesystem Unrecognized
Date
From
Hi there,


I have had this problem for a long time now, but I am just writing
about it now (because I am fed up with it :)) -- I have a vfat filesystem
that works just fine in windows 95, but does not want to work in linux.
The error I get is the syslog is:

[MS-DOS FS Rel. 12,FAT 16,check=n,conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=077]
[me=0xf8,cs=16,#f=2,fs=1,fl=168,ds=337,de=512,data=369,se=0,ts=717633,ls=512]
Transaction block size = 512
VFS: Can't find a valid MSDOS filesystem on dev 03:05.

I have other vfat filesystems that work fine, but this one does not. I
had similar problems with another filesystem and I think what I did to
correct it was to re-SYS the disk in windows 95 but I'm not 100% sure if
that was the fixer. This leads me to believe that the linux vfat driver
is not recognizing the first sector properly ( I say that because I tried
dd'ing another partition's first sector over the first sector on the
partition that wasn't working and it mounted (but, of course this is not a
fix because the data on the mounted on the partition was only a directory
on the partition (e.g.: the mounted filesystem was corrupt)) So I
restored the original bootsector on that partition and again it was
unmountable. I am enclosing the 1-st 512-byte sector below for your
browsing pleasure :).
