i had similar issues with fat filesystems on target.
from : http://sial.org/howto/rsync/
"Normally, the -a option can be used to perfectly mirror the files. However,
if the target filesystem does not support permissions, a different set of
options should be used to avoid warnings from rsync. To synchronize data to
a USB drive with a FAT filesystem, I use the -rlt options. "
-r, --recursive recurse into directories
-l, --links copy symlinks as symlinks
-t, --times preserve modification times
