I have a PNY memory stick whose capacity is 32 gb.
A friend formats it behind my eyes with on Windows whose I don't remember the edition, in FAT,
because that was the only file system that my home DVD reader understand.
My problem is that now, neither linux, nor windows recognizes it as a valid medium anymore. I need to fix it in one way or another. See the result of "dmesg" on my Cinnamon LMDE last version says about it :
- Code: Select all

Right now it's unusable.
And assuming it was correctly formatted in vfat :
$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /media/mehdi
mount: no medium found on /dev/sdb
