I just bought a 256GB flash drive on ebay. It came formatted FAT32.
It appears to hold 256GB in FAT32, but it has errors when I try to copy another HDD to it. I didn't document the errors, but did track down one of them--the file being copied had a ':' in it. So, I wanted to convert it to ext3 or ext4.
I used gparted to do the reformat (guick format), it completed without errors.
But, when I try to mount it so I can actually use it for something, I get the following error:
What does this error message mean and how do I return this drive to proper operation with an ext4 type partition???Code:Error mounting /dev/sdc1 at /media/artie/d00088ac-46d4-46e8-8e83-1cda4612e4ec: Command-line `mount -t "ext3" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdc1" "/media/artie/d00088ac-46d4-46e8-8e83-1cda4612e4ec"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
