The reason is that diskmanipulator only supports FAT12, and to go beyond 32 MB you need FAT16.

That is nice to know but it would also be nice to have FAT16 support in the disk manipulator.

In the meantime:
dev=$(sudo losetup -f)
sudo losetup $dev /data/app/MSX/Disk/SD.dsk
sudo partprobe $dev
sudo mount -o umask=0000 ${dev}p1 /mnt/msx
rm -Rf /mnt/msx/*
cp output/* /mnt/msx/
sudo umount /mnt/msx
sudo losetup -d $dev
cp /data/app/MSX/Disk/SD.dsk /data/ftp/web/maur/msx/salesdiscontinued/SD.dsk

I am looking for volunteers who want to add fat16 support to disk manipulator.
