Default Error reading pen drive

hi,
I have a kingston 32 GB pen drive which I tried to format but it is
showing me the following error:

Error mounting device
org.freeDesktop.DeviceKitDisks.Error.Failed: Not a mountable file system

But when I insert any other per drive it works. Is there any remedy for this?

Now did you try to format the pen drive? Can you post the output of
"fdisk -l" with the drive plugged in?

The output of "fdisk -l" is (pen drive plugged in):

I don't but I guess the drive is having a small sector corrupted
inside it as the icon is getting displayed but other actions have been
restricted unknowingly!

Parsha,

Does running 'fdisk -l /dev/sdb' as root allow you to create and save
new partitions?

Probably want just 'fdisk /dev/sdb' if you're planning to create
partitions and save the table - the -l switch will cause the program to
print the current table on sdb and exit.

Bryn.

Parsha,

Very sorry. Leave out the '-l'. Should not hit the Send button just
after the telephone rings.

Not planning that but only wanted to have the pen drive work well.

Of hand, it looks like you did something like "mke2fs /dev/sdb".
While this is valid, it creates a drive without a partition table.
This causes problems for the auto-mount software.

While you could manually mount a drive set up this way, you are
better using parted to create a partition table, a partition that
spans the entire drive, and formatting it. You will probably find
that one of the GUIs for parted is easier to use. You may have
gparted or qtparted installed.
