My guess is that you've mixed two filesystems on it, a UFS on the
entire stick, and a FAT fs on a slice.  The AMD64 cannot mount the UFS
because of the reverse byte order.  On the Sparc, are you sure you
actually enabled fdisk partitions?  Otherwise, it would not be
surprising that it doesn't recognize the slice.

Both filesystems likely mutually corrupt each other when you try to
write to them.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
