Topic: Pendrive repair failures
I've used GParted many x's before and always achieved desired results. However...there's always exceptions to the 'rule". I have an 8Gb (7.45Gb useable) Sandisk Cruiser Glide that's defying any/all attempts to get it back in working order. The pendrive is not recognized by O.S's, but is by a number of "pendrive" repair tools. Here's what I've tried and failed at. 1. format 2. delete/add new partition. What 'report" I'm getting from Gparted; GParted shows yellow warning triangle, then black square box, then "unknown file system". When I tried 'format" a "menu box" apperared, but it was completely blank and did nothing. When trying to delete/rebuild partition, as soon as I tik "apply", Gparted freezes up. NEVER had anything like this occur before. Haven't a clue as to pendrive's problem for I cannot get "read-out" on it performance. It does show up for GParted, all of it's(the pendrive) specs, but nothing else. Not sure what else I can do. It's gotta be something simple I'm overlooking, but I haven't a clue. There's nothing "on" the drive that I can't replace, so data loss is not an issue. I'm running GParted out of Puppylinux "live".
