'cfdisk /dev/sda' - not sda1.
But nothing bad will happen - just won't work.
AFAIK 'fdisk /dev/sda' does the same, so it should have worked fine.
And mkfs.vfat and mkdosfs are one and the same, so he did it correctly.
Could mkdosfs have chosen a different sector or cluster size - one that
neither rockbox nor archos is comfortable with?
