Maybe you have to go something like this:

Go flash. Then, just make a sort of adapted FAT system. Loose all the
data/time/atrrb information so that you only
retain 8 byte namen 3 byte extention (no dot between them, it just takes up
space), and a pointer to a particular
memory space where the file is located. In the first 2 bytes or so the
length is recorded for the file, so you know
where the file ends. E Voila!
But when you've got to alter the contents of your FLASH-DISK, just flush the
whole thing and write a new adapted file-
table. Ofcourse you will write a VB application or so for that task....
