USB Drive not mounting and unmounting right

Postby cjxjman » Sat May 04, 2013 11:35 pm

Ok Im lost, I have been trying to make this system work right. My USB drive will not "reset" I have partitioned it and loaded an ISO onto it. But everytime I put it in the system tells me its the old system / files.

I have an IBM Thinkpad T60 (older model) Its running Linux mint 14 / Win XP.

Ive used gparted and partitionmanger both cause the same issue.

This is the error i have been getting after I have "erased the drive" I left it unpartitioned and restarted the computer. Still get this error.


Unable to mount Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit

Error mounting /dev/sdb at /media/cjxjman/Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit: Command-line `mount -t "iso9660" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,mode=0400,dmode=0500" "/dev/sdb" "/media/cjxjman/Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Any Ideas?

I didnt need to. Popped it into my desktop linux box and now it shows it as a 32 GB USB drive. Well I know its only a 4. So I popped it into my Win7 computer and formated it. Windows reported 1.74 GB. The drive it self is old so It probably failed.
