SOLVED USB Partition creation does not complete

Using the Disk program under Accessories I am trying to create a partition on a USB Stick of 250 GB

Re: System event sounds missing

Thanks for your help.
Under System Setting I had the Audio section
See the image:
Screenshot from 2020-06-23 17-33-37.png
I tested the output sound and I had to change to the right device. Then the test
was successful.

Now when I perform System actions I hear the sound.
Thanks again

Re: System event sounds missing

My DE is Cinnamon.
