This works.  Running fsck.vfat afterwards finds no problem with the SD
card's new label.  But setting the label to "YEPP1" on my Samsung YP-C1
(USB mounted) gets:

    $fsck.vfat -r /dev/sdb1
    dosfsck 2.11, 12 Mar 2005, FAT32, LFN
    There are differences between boot sector and its backup.
    Differences: (offset:original/backup)
      71:59/00, 72:45/00, 73:50/00, 74:50/00, 75:31/00, 76:20/00, 77:20/00
      , 78:20/00, 79:20/00, 80:20/00, 81:20/0

Copying the original to the backup did not hinder the audio player's
function (the previous time I played with relabeling, the YP-C1 was
non-functional for several days until I could reformat it on a my
nephew's Windows machine. I now keep a backup filesystem image just in

Any way I can get Gnome to automount these devices with the vfat option
shortname=lower instead of it's current shortname=winnt?
