Using the Disk program under Accessories I am trying to create a partition on a USB Stick of 250 GB
of unallocated space. This process is now running for hours and does not not finish.
Here is screen shot:

Does that mean the USB is bad?

Try this command:

Code: Select all

sudo sgdisk --zap-all /dev/sdc
Maybe run it twice. Then try Disks to do what you want.

If you select the three parallel stripes and format it what happens next with the new partition?

Sorry, I worked on the wrong HD. Choosing the right one lets me create the partition.
The File Manager now shows the USB sick which was missing before.
Thanks for the help.
