I have an 8GB USB 2.0 flash drive (no-name), on which I tried a few days ago to copy a film of about 6GB. The flash drive had NTFS file system so I thought there will be no problems. But at some point an error had occurred that I didn't noticed and after some time I removed the flash drive without seeing the error. Now the flash drive is unusable.
I have a 16GB flash drive that stopped loading on either windows or linux after someone pulled it out of a windows computer without unmounting it first. After I couldn't repair it myself I took it to IT and they tried to chkdsk it, but it wouldn't run, they didn't tell me much.
At that point I gave up on data recovery and decided to reformat to at least have a usable flash drive again.
Hi. I'm trying to create a dual boot on my Lenovo T410. I downloaded the Gparted *.iso image so I can partition my drive. I downloaded Startup Disk Creator using the USC so I cna create a bootable drive from which I can run Gparted on my windows box. I specify the image file in SDC and the flash drive on which I would like Startup Disk Creator to create the bootable device.
I'm using centos 6.5 64 bit and I discovered by trial and error that yum install gparted installs a rather weak version of garted (v0.3...), it can do sod-all with a difficult drive, however version 0.19 (from the live cd) works much better, so I downloaded and installed the source code for gparted 0.19 but I can't work out how to start gparted in centos 6.
A few months ago, I got a SanDisk Cruzer Glide 16GB flash drive. Both Windows and Gparted showed 16GB. I played around with the partitions, and a few weeks later I noticed the capacity listed under Gparted was about 14GB. That number hasn't changed from there, but I also have an "8" GB flash drive that from the moment I got it I only had 7.5 GB.
I just installed Xubuntu 12.04.1 and updated and installed all my usual apps including gparted.
Running gparted from the menu and running from terminal with 'gksudo gparted' results in the same behavior with no output to the command line. All I get is the gparted program scanning all devices indefinitely.
I have let it run for over ten minutes with no change in behavior.
I'm going insane here so I have to ask. I have previously been running Openelec on my HTPC off a 16GB UB Flash Drive. I know want to use that flash drive for something else so I am trying to reformat it. When I insert the flash drive into my desktop (which is running Windows 7 for the time being, so I only have access to Ubuntu via a live CD) GParted scans endlessly.
I've got a fully updated Fedora 20 virtual machine that's been running fine. However, today I wanted to format an USB flash drive plugged into the machine with GParted. When I started GParted I got a prompt apparently from geesu asking for the root password which I gave, then nothing happened (i.e. GParted did not start).
Am I doing something wrong? How do I troubleshoot this?
