Hi !

I have got a Fujitsu MO-Drive with 640 MB Disks. These disks have got a
hardware blocksize of 2048 bytes/sector. I am running kernel 2.1.54 and my
mo-drive is correctly recognized from the scsi-driver. I can use MO-Disks
with ext2 fs on them but I can't mount MO-Disks with fat fs on them.

Haw can I mount 640 MB MO-Disks with a msdos fs on them ? I have seen that
buffer.c and inode.c have definitions for a 2048 blocksize, but when
mounting a mo-disk with "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt -t msdos -o blocksize=2048" I
always get:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
or too many mounted file systems

What can I do ??

Thanks and bye
