I have an 8GB USB Memory stick that I want to format. When I call fdisk -l, I get the following:
Disk /dev/sdc: 1004.6 GB, 1004611174400 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 122137 cylinders, total 1962131200 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x000646b0
Similarly, GParted lists the drive size as 935.62GiB and when I try to create a new partition, the maximum size is listed as 958,071 MiB.
What could be causing this? And what can I do to reset whatever defines the size of the drive?
