I have a usb memory stick that used to work perfectly fine, but then I made a mistake while trying to install a disk image onto it and now no computer recognizes that it is a memory drive. It doesn't mount, fdisk doesn't recognize it. However lsusb recognizes it. Output of fdisk -l

It may be important to note that I know that the usb port works, and that the same problem occurs on other computers and other operating systems.

I would have a look in the dmesg output to see what the kernel says when you plug the drive in .. that might yield a few more clues. –  Steve Dee Jan 24 at 0:15

1 Answer 1

Sometimes writing ISO files junks my usbs. It seems to happen most when I try to partition space for persistent storage. What i normally do is power cycle then open gparted and format the usb.

sudo apt-get install gparted

then

sudo gparted

This is the first thing I'd try. –  Marc Jan 24 at 4:49
    
Tried that, didn't show up as a drive –  Tony Jan 25 at 0:08
    
Did you do sudo mount -a That will mount everything that the kernal can mount. –  user239243 Jan 25 at 0:34
    
Yes, and it didn't work. –  Tony Jan 25 at 0:37
    
can you give us the dmesg output that Steve asked for? –  user239243 Jan 25 at 0:56
