Hi Cristina,

I never tested this myself, but I think your problem is with the label of 
the device. It's not "casper-cow", but "casper-rw".

You'll find more information about the use here:

And there's a thread on Ubuntuforums (linked from that wiki page) where a 
user claims he got it working using "casper-rw" as the device label:

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
