Glad to know the flash drive is now usable in Mint.
We cannot use GParted to add disk labels, though. So you did not miss anything nor did something wrong either. In order to add disk labels to VFAT partitions, you must reformat the drive using this command in the Terminal:
- Code: Select all
sudo mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n DISKLABEL /dev/sd[alpha][numeric]
Breakdown of the syntax:
-F 32 : Format the disk/partition as FAT32. Use -F 16 to format it as FAT16.
-n DISKLABEL : Gives the disk/partition a label "DISKLABEL".
/dev/sd[alpha][numeric] : Block device name of the partition. Example: /dev/sdb1.
And make sure that the drive/partition is not mounted before executing the command.
