    Re: Cannot format USB flash driver using Gparted

    Any idea how to solve it? Now I cannot do anything with flash drive. Windows XP cannot format it, says "Unable to format drive" and above program does not do anything. That's how it looks with Gparted: http://i.imgur.com/M6WKJQI.png

    I don't need to burn iso into it anymore, all I want it to simply work.

    Did you change the example of sdX to your drive the second time?
    Not sure what the label error is. I often assign labels to partitions with Disk Utility or Disks in new versions. What does Disk Utility show?

    Of course I did. I check label via Gparted every time and change accordingly.
