Don't reboot your Nokia device or unplug the USB cable without first
unmounting the USB drive from the Linux system.  This is almost
certainly what is causing the errors in your MMC drive's FAT file

The host system quickly buffers changes to the USB drive in RAM and
then more slowly writes them out to the physical drive. Unmounting
will force these changes to be written. If you unplug before they are
written the file system will be partially updated which causes the
errors you see.
