> Checked '-fstype=vfat,sync,gid=floppy,umask=002  :/dev/sdb'  This did not work when mounted manually, the only command that worked was 'mount /dev/sdb /mnt/sandisk(or any other mount point)' i.e. it would not accept'-fstype', either with vfat or ext2.

When are you available to debug this back'n'forth over a few days and nail it 
down inside that time-frame: it's kinda sub-optimal to have such long gaps 
between stages.
