NTFS format would be the best option. You can format the usb drive using windows built in tool, which may be on the right click menu. So right click on the USB drive and it should be as easy as selecting 'format' and choosing 'NTFS'.

Ubuntu 14.04 should work with FAT32 and NTFS from the get-go. However, FAT32 has a max file limit of 4GB (any files larger than this can't be put on it). If you install exfat-fuse on Ubuntu by typing sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse into the command line, Ubuntu should also mount the exFAT filesystem, which is similar to FAT32 except it does not impose the ...

I've had a similar problem in the past. I used Photorec http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec and recovered my files and then re-formated the usb drive. It works okay now and I got the files that I wanted.

sudo apt-get install usbmount automatically mount and unmount USB mass storage devices This package automatically mounts USB mass storage devices (typically USB pens) when they are plugged in, and unmounts them when they are removed. The mountpoints (/media/usb[0-7] by default), filesystem types to consider, and mount options are configurable. ...

The answer is yes, you can. You need to have your pen drive plugged in during the installation of Ubuntu and you need to tell Ubuntu that you want to place the boot loader on this pen drive. Assuming that you have two hard drives /dev/sda and /dev/sdb the device for keeping new bootloader is /dev/sdc, which should be your pen drive. To load Windows in your ...

Ubuntu differentiates between filesystem builds (ISO formats) and displays the relevant icon. The standard USB icon is for generic removable media devices. The one with the purple usb stick is for UDF filesystems (Info here). The larger icon is for mass storage devices. You may come across any of these depending on the hardware specifications of the ...

I've finally managed to install an operating system via USB. I'm not sure, but it looked like to me the BIOS was too old for recognizing my 4Gig drives, fortunately it recognized 2 of my 1Gig drives, when I tried it. I was able to make a bootable one with UNetbootin. Neither the Ubuntu system, or my softwares had problems. It is only the BIOS in old ...

The Kingston Locker+ G3 can be accessed through linux. Here are two (non-officialy supported by Kingston) methods: Using a windows virtual machine to un-lock the drive, and then releasing it to the host OS. It works for me with VMware Workstation. Using the binaries shipped with another Kingston key, namely the "DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0". (Works ...

Well this is weird to say the least. I'm guessing your TV's OS has additional requirements beyond simply FAT32. For example Windows XP has limitations on cluster size, number of clusters, and partition size when booting from FAT32 partitions (REF). Perhaps your TV doesn't like the allocation size? If that's not it then I don't know :P. You should check to ...

If you are using NTFS on the drive, the open source NTFS utility is not capable of handling all the errors that the Windows utility can handle. In such cases, you have to check the disk from Windows. However, if you are going to format anyway, you can do that from Ubuntu, since Ubuntu does mount it as a read-only system, allowing you to backup content from ...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the filesystem is damaged , the only option is to format the drive. When I created backup pen drive from a chromebook, something went wrong, so i had to format and create new partition on that pen drive with gparted. You can always try using dd command. More information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_%28Unix%29. If you ...
