I have a compact flash card formatted to FAT16. I am unable to format it to any other file system. I used GParted to format the card to ext2 for example, after I do that, the file system becomes unknown to GParted!
I ran fsck on the card and it returned a dirty bit to be deleted. Do I deleted this dirty bit?
'sudo fsck /dev/sdb1' output now:
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 dosfsck 3.0.16, 01 Mar 2013, FAT32, LFN /dev/sdb1: 1 files, 0/61366 clusters
