I formated a usb stick on a windows system using Fat32, but windows automatically allocated 2084bytes and I didn't notice, so when I made the stick bootable and used it, but when I wanted to format it this error kept coming up:
Gparted discovered 2084 bytes instead of 512bytes
so I checked online and used this command:
sudo fdisk /dev/sbd and deleted the two partitions and ran
w to write it.
That didn't work so i ran this command:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sbd bs=2048 count=32
after running this command the error stopped coming up on gparted, for a few seconds my usb drive wasn't showing as a bootable drive but a normal 4gb drive. I removed it and inserted it again and the usb drive stopped coming up, Gparted said the drive is unallocated so I created an msdos partition but it still says the drive is unallocated and doesn't allow me format it.
list disk and
list volume commands on windows and got this
It shows the USB drives partition, but not the volume
