Question on formatting a flash drive: I have this 4 GB Kingston flash drive. I have used for some time. I recently backed it up and installed a Linux distro on it, after formatting it. Later I formatted it again (both times using Gparted), and now it can’t be used.
Using it on Windows says that it needs to be formatted. When clicked Format, it carries on the process and finally says Windows could not complete the format. I have tried it over and over, and I have tried formatting it with Gpated and Disk Utility in Linux. Nothing seems to work.
Disk Utility says says Error creating file system. Gparted keeps volleying me back and forth between having to create a partition first and something else. I am really frustrated now. I wasted several hours hunting for solutions on the web. I know some of us out there has a solutions. Please help! Thanks in advance.
