Flash drive mounting error

Sometimes you face problem with your flash drive when you want to mount it on both linux and windows. Also unable to read partition etc etc.That is bcoz there is a problem with partiotin table on it.

Just follow the few steps below on linux –

sfdisk /dev/sdb [create new partition]

mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 [assign filesystem to the newly created partition]

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb1 bs=512 count=1 [write some thing on the new partition]

Then from Windows OS perform a fresh format with that flash drive.
