My first guess is FAT corruption (maybe windows reads second copy of
FAT?). Maybe try to do chkdsk from windows, or make a backup first
from there anyway.
My second guess is character encoding differences, but usually it
would not be so extreme. I mount vfat with options
codepage=437,iocharset=utf8 and it seems to usually give me proper
results for "international" filenames (although mount warns me every
time that this is unwise).
