It may be to do with the CIFS mount options (and for extra fun, I guess
the USB drive's mount options). Can you provide a bit more information
about the USB mount, and exactly what sort of failure rsync produces?

Also, have a look at "man 8 mount", which says:

  Mount options for ntfs
    iocharset=name
      Character  set  to  use when returning file names.  Unlike VFAT, NTFS
      suppresses names  that  contain  unconvertible characters. Deprecated.

    nls=name
      New name for the option earlier called iocharset.

    utf8
      Use UTF-8 for converting file names.

and the corresponding stuff for the CIFS mount. It is necessary that the
characters on the source directory be expressible on the target
directory.

If you hit a dead end here (on this list) there are always the rsync
lists:
