I downloaded a short video, then wrote:
sudo mv /home/myname/Downloads/m.mp4 /dev/sdb1
the video disappeared completely. It's not in the USB drive. I searched for it by writing:
find / m.mp4 find m.mp4
But it's nowhere to be found.I keep getting
find: ‘m.mp4’: No such file or directory
The USB is mounted and accessible. The video is no longer in Downloads.
Sudodus, thank you. I still don't get it fully but I understand I should've used the mount point. I used it and it worked, like magic. Nothing was erased from the USB, so I am not sure why you apologized. How would you know what the mount point is? I found it in Gparted. And what does this mean, from Gparted:
init :: non DOS media Cannot initialize '::' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive init :: non DOS media Cannot initialize '::'
The output when I wrote
sudo ls -l /dev/sdb1 is
