Ok, I wiped mbr and made fdisk create a new one:

Disk /dev/sdb: 2055 MB, 2055208960 bytes
64 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 3968 * 512 = 2031616 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc3790b2f

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *           1        1011     2005793    c  W95 FAT32 (LBA)


I'll try it tomorrow.
