I have a computer running xubuntu 13.10, and a flash usb drive Kingston. My friend gave it to me and I do not know why the computer did not regconize it. Here is the result after running
sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sdb: 7747 MB, 7747397632 bytes 239 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1021 cylinders, total 15131636 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: 0x00000000
Then I used gparted trying to format it, gparted said it is unallocated, and we can't created partition table on it.
I also tried Disk ultility but it crashed everytimes, with the error:
Error synchronizing after formatting with type ``dos'``: Timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark, 0)
Please help me to rescue it.
