    I have a problem with bootable usb flash

    I wanted to create a bootable drive for win xp, when convert FAT32 to NTFS with some commands:
    sudo apt-get install gparted
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
    df -h
    umount /dev/sdb1 sudo mkntfs --fast --label myUsbDrive /dev/sdb1
    I can't mount usb, i tried some ways but still failed:
    mount /dev/sdb1
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
    Yesterday, I pluged in the usb again. I has error:
    Error mounting /dev/sdb at: command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=100 0" "/dev/sdb1" exited with non-zero exit status 13: $mftmirr does not match $mft (record 0).
    Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': input/output error.
    NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a softraid/fakeraid hardware.
    In the first case run chkdsk /f on windows then reboot into windows twice.
    The usage of the /f parameter is very important!
    If the device is a softraid/fakeraid then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1).
    Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
    Name of usb: /dev/sdb1
    Link of directory: /media/bodhi64/myUsbDrive

    Anyone can help me? Thanks in advance.

    It will be solve by: convert NTFS to FAT32
    sudo mkfs -t vfat /dev/sdb1
