Ok, I've just tested this. It is a FAT filesystem limitation.
I've looked at this thread a number of times, but I was then and
still am puzzled. *According to "Linux in a Nutshell," by Siever, et al,
cp is a copy command that applies to files or directories, and
none of the options mentions determining the size of a file-
system or the remaining space therein. *Please advise.
It was about cp reporting 'no space left on device', whilst df said that there was space available.
