format usb stick udf to ntfs
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 6, 2011
i have a usb stick divided in two; a partition of NTFS for the most part and a small annoying part of a few Mb in UDF which mounts every time as a cdrom.
how do i get rid of the small UDF part?
I have tried to format everything as one big chunk in NTFS with Gparted without success.
I have also tried something i found on the net under windows:
1.click Start>>run>> type "CMD">> enter
2.type format X: /FS:NTFS (X would be the drive letter)
but it won't let me format the UDF part.
thanks a lot in advance

Can not format USB stick in FAT32
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 13, 2013
I am trying to make a Ubuntu boot disk on a USB stick to install in another pc.
I can not format it in FAT32.
(1) First I used the start up application
(2) Selected the iso and sdc1 where the usb is
(3) Asked to erase the disk as it said it was full, and it was not but anyway I chose the option (the disk was already formated in FAT32 by default anyway)
(4) It did not make it, it says: "org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.Inhibited: Daemon is inhibited"
(4) There is this other error to:"org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.FilesystemToolsMi ssing: Error creating file system: Cannot run mkfs: cannot spawn 'mkfs.vfat -I /dev/sdc1': Failed to execute child process "mkfs.vfat" (No such file or directory)"
Now if I open gParted to format the disk the option FAT332 is not available.
The usb stick is unmounted when I do this process. In fact it does not mount anymore.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04
Usb mounted on /dev/scd1
Format USB drive as NTFS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2009
In GParted 0.3.8 under the "format to" menu NTFS is dimmed out. How come it's dimmed out I need to format this hard drive as NTFS.
UPDATE: This page seems to have helped: http://maketecheasier.com/how-to-ref...rdy/2008/09/29
I needed to install a the "ntfsprogs" package.
Is there a way to change (or create one since there isn't one as I just formatted) the volume labal of an NTFS drive? I think there is a command but that's for FAT, is there a GUI program?
Just as a sidenote, for command that involve identifying drives like sdac, how do you know which is which. I use GParted and it tells me the volume label and the sdxy identifier. Is there a better way that I don't know about?
Steps to format Usb hard to ntfs in precise 5.7.1 so I can use in windows 7
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2015
My first post, I have a 80 GB hard drive that I installed in a usb drive enclosure. I first attempted to install Fedora 19 on it, now windows does not detect it. So I want to reformat it in Puppy Precise 5.71 so windows can see it again.
Thanks in advance!

Problems w/ lowlevel format of USB stick
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 19, 2010
I have a Kingston Datatraveller 150 32gb that I've had intermittent problems with mounting in ubuntu 8.x, XP and Vista. I.e., it's unreliable. I managed to completely brick it by dropping it on a magnet at work, so I figured I'd just reformat it completely.
I'm using 10.04 x64 right now and want to do this from the command line, not with some 3rd party program on XP.
~$ mkfs -t fat32 -V /dev/sdb
mkfs (util-linux-ng 2.17.2)
mkfs.fat32: No such file or directory
~$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=dev/sdb
dd: opening `dev/sdb': No such file or directory
Here's disk utility, which says the disk is /dev/sdb.
Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/sdb: No medium found
dmesg |grep -i usb doesn't show a sdb device, but one does show up in /dev if I do a ls.

SD card & USB stick format chaos
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 4, 2006
Slack 10.1, kernel 2.6. Usually inserting my SD cards into PCMCIA slot or card reader generates a device /dev/hde1 or /dev/sda1. Inserting a second one produces hdg1 and sdb1. Some cards/usb sticks however, generate just the hde, hdg, sda, sdb without the 1, causing chaos to my carefully set up fstab. If I format a card or stick using mkdosfs /dev/whatever (because something has corrupted) the thing always then produces the device with no number,even if it used to produce a numbered device. It also seems to say "unknown partition table" in dmesg.
I feel in a complete muddle and do not know what to do next. My family cannot cope with trying to figure which device their card is going to show up in. Can anyone guide me please?

Using FDISK to Format USB drive NTFS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 28, 2011
This is giving me all kinds of issues. I have Ubuntu server (Maverick) running and I am trying to configure some rsync Cron jobs to backup some media files and system files. However, I formatted an external 750 GB HDD as 1 NTFS partition from the terminal using FDISK. However when I try to mount the partition it says it's not valid NTFS. Do I need to set any flags on the drive in FDISK first? And if so which hex code do I choose for NTFS? thanks
