Is the capacity of your MO disk more than 640M?
In order to clarify a problem, please send the debugging output of FAT.

---------------------- start example --------------------------------
$ mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt -o debug
$ dmesg | tail
Type: Optical Device ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 5, lun 0
sym53c875-0-<5,*>: asynchronous.
SCSI device sda: 310352 2048-byte hdwr sectors (636 MB)
sda: Write Protect is off
MSDOS: Hardware sector size is 2048
[MS-DOS FS Rel. 12,FAT 16,check=n,conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022]
Transaction block size = 2048
---------------------- end example --------------------------------

Perhaps, your MO disk will have the `ls' of a value smaller than 2048.
Logical sector size smaller than device sector size cannot be handled
with FAT of 2.4 series.
