Are you *sure* that's where your MSDOS partitions start and extend?
size offset fstype
f: 20472417 63 MSDOS
g: 12428577 20472543 MSDOS
Note that 20472417 + 63 == 20472480...

Change those to "rw 1 0" as noted. Does /c mount all right without
complaining? How about /d?
...and what happened to the extra 63 bytes in /d, or did the initial
63-byte offset get added twice?
