255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Disk /dev/sdb: 8179 MB, 8179941376 bytes
252 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1022 cylinders, total 15976448 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: 0x12108eb8

Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table

i Tried the following command Disk Shows

enter image description here

Now Gparted Does not shows the device , but i can see drive in unity disk manager What should i do now, to fix those errors?

  • Can you select /dev/sdb in Gparted with the drop-down selector in the upper right corner? – Jos May 19 '14 at 13:26
  • no i can't ,and i can't select via Gparted>Devices too – hrirks May 19 '14 at 13:28
  • Looks like the drive is toast; time to toss it and get a new one. – psusi May 19 '14 at 13:28
  • I think that your usb drive is read only, please check it in other computer. – xiaodongjie May 19 '14 at 15:07
  • @psusi i already have 4 pendrives , but i need to fix this , so why not try ?? – hrirks May 19 '14 at 18:09
