- How to format a USB or external drive? 6 answers
I know there's a few relevant questions answered but when I try to format it through disk utility the only answer I get is:
"Error synchrinizing after initial wipe: Timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark,0)
I'm new to Linux, had no problem with Debian, Ubuntu seemed even friendlier in the start but seems I can't do a simple thing like formatting a usb stick. I know that some of you will tell me to download Gparted or something but since Ubuntu by default has a disk utility that does the job it should work, shouldn't it?
Is something wrong with my dash? Is it something fixable or something missing? When a utility is already there it should work or at least know why it doesn't. Installing and using something else is not a good solution. Formatting is so simple and easy on Debian...
