I'm really new to Linux, so I might seems to be stupid from time to time. But anyways, I unplugged a USB flash memory from my computer, while running windows xp. I think that this got it corrupt in some way. I can't solve this problem in Windows. I heard that Linux seems to be much better at fixing this kinda problems.
I found this thread. However I can't seems to find my usb device by using
mount command. I can find it when looking at
lsusb. The problem is that I can't find the device address.
EDIT: I need to access some files from the USB device - 8GB FAR32. I only care about the word-documents on it, but it would be nice, if I could grab some .htm and .css files too. I can't open the usb flash memory because its corrupted.
- Is there a way to grab the files, or better fixing the usb. My linux machine is running Xubuntu, however I can grab standard Ubuntu if it's needed.
fdisk -l gives me this
