The script below is an opposite- variant of this script; while that one acts on specified drives, this scripts acts on all except specified (usb) drives.

I ran into this problem with writing onto an old drive that had been written as a live linux disk. Solution if you just want to erase the disk /dev/sdX: sudo parted /dev/sdX o (agree to delete partitions) w (agree to write partition table) And then you have a perfectly blank drive. All that remains is to create a partition if you want to use ...

Well the flash has been simply locked by its internal mechanisma, and the manufacturer of the flash just replaced it. So step-by-step navigator follows: I wrote the same letter to the company's support and got the answer in which they said that: Write protection happens to prevent data loss from a potential fault. We recommend to backup your data ...

It sounds like the bootable usb pen drive was not created successfully, especially given the "mac told me that he could not use the pen drive" message. But try "step 10" (reboot with the alt/option key pressed to boot from the usb stick) if you weren't already. I'm unfamiliar with mac's, but I'd suggest creating a Ubuntu cd/dvd/usb again using a different ...

You can do this by zeroing the entire flash drive, using dd 1) Run disks to get the device identifier, for example '/dev/sdg', then close disks. 2) From a terminal run this command sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdg This will write zeros to the entire flash drive, clearing it completely. Be very careful to use the correct device identifier. If you use the ...

Probably a duplicate of: How do I get rid of "U3 System" on my USB drive?. If not, downvote this answer and the moderator looking into this will see it and not mark it as a duplicate.

Yes there is a way of doing this, but if you're asking the question, you're probably not going to like the answer: Auto-unmount USB drive

yes it does. just right click on USB icon in launcher and click safely remove or eject

Yes, that is possible, but it is not going to be a good solution. You can add pretty much every block device to a software RAID. But the limitations of that device will limit the whole array. In case of USB the limiting factors are speed (yes, even with USB 3.0) and reliability. Also the devices will have to be plugged in all the time. If one is not ...

I just had the same error trying to make a bootable Ubuntu 14.10 USB stick with Pendrivelinux under Windows 7. I tried 2 different sticks, re-downloading the image, the works. The solution was using Rufus (http://rufus.akeo.ie/) instead of Pendrivelinux.

Grub EFI bootloader searches /.disk/info file to find the root filesystem of ubuntu. Just create the corresponding file will be fine. Not sure what specification it follows though, maybe it's ubuntu-only approach.

The only thing I found looking around on the Linux Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) is the Waltop QPad which is also sold by Aiptek under the designation "Aiptek HyperPen Mini". No personal experience, the post is from 2010, so I advise you to start an e-mail campaign on Linux to the providers of the other digital pens that are around... Maybe one will ...

There's no magic switch to flip to make it bigger. End of answer. Congratulations on a handy conspiracy theory. Storage devices aren't like Atheros wireless devices where they used a wireless chipset across all their products and limited the channel capabilities in software.

Try this. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below: sudo gedit /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks2.policy When it opens look for <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active> and change it to <allow_active>yes</allow_active>
