[root@localhost sbin]# ./fdisk -l /dev/hdb
 
Disk /dev/hdb: 60.0 GB, 60022480896 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7297 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
 
   Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 7297 58613121 c Win95 FAT3
2 (LBA)

seems okay to me.. and yet

[root@localhost sbin]# mount -t vfat /dev/hdb1 /mnt/davinci
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
       or too many mounted file systems
