I'm trying to get a USB mass storage device working. According to the disk utility in Ubuntu it isn't partitioned and the capacity is at 0.0 kb. If I attempt to format it I get this: Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: In part_create_partition_table: device_file=/dev/sdc, scheme=0
ped_device_get() failed . Is the device broken beyond repair, or is there some linux voodoo ritual that might fix this?
Thanks for any help in advance!
P.S: It doesn't work in Windows either so the problem isn't Ubuntu specific.
