Maybe there was some garbage on the MMC, confusing the 'mount' command.
Next time you could try to do something like

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<MMC-device> bs=512 count=1000

before the mkfs.vfat command, because I think mkfs does not clear the
device so well before formatting it.

There will be improvement for these issues in the OS2006 release
(including MMC partitioning support).
