Such problems are specific only to certain USB stick technologies. 
Even though they all look alike, more or less, they use different 
storage technologies inside. I have encountered some problems with 
the newest, very cheap ones, including not being recognized by one or 
the other system, whereas older ones I have work reliably between 
OS9, OSX, and Windows.

Your problems with FTP server sound weird. But zipped stacks should 
transfer okay as email attachments if nothing else is available and 
anti-spam lets zip files through.
