Difficulties mounting images to microSD card

I followed all the stages in 101211_EcoCariMX53_FW.pdf but cannot go past mounting the SD card at media/MX53_QSB.

When running the command:

"sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/MX53_QSB"

I receive the message "mount: you must specify the filesystem type".

I tried using "sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /media/MX53_QSB" and got the message "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error..."

"fdisk /dev/sdb --> p " shows

"/dev/sdb1 8192 15523839 7757824 83 Linux"

but cfdisk gives me "FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 0: Partition ends in the final partial cylinder"

dmesg | tail shows ext3 filesystem was not found.

Does anyone know what I should do next to load the filesystem to the SD card?
