   I think you miss some important VFAT meta data which should be
written on Nand, but due to your wrong operations, they do not.
   Try this:
 # dd bs=1M count=10 if=/dev/zero of=vfat.img
 # loseup /dev/loop0 vfat.img
 # modprobe g_file_storage file=/dev/loop0

 On windows side:
 fast FAT or FAT32 format
 cp files ...
 unload USB device

 On Board:
# rmmod g_file_storage
# mount -t vfat -o loop vfat.img /mnt/fat
# ls /mnt/fat
See it ?

Best wishes,
