I had used these commands (as root):
It took a long time to format it and I couldn't wait it. Before it finished formatting, I had canceled operation.
After I used my usb device for making copy operations, I couldn't use my usb device.
Actually, Maybe it wasn't about mkfs.ntfs command but there is a truth now: I can't use my flash drive.
As you see, It says "No media" about /dev/sdb although I plugged in usb device.
There isn't any problem about my OS (Linux Mint). The problem is about my usb device. I can see my other usb devices on Linux Mint.
Have I burnt my usb device ? How can I solve this problem ?
Edit: After intense desires of our participants , I should add it:
I used these commands (there are commands with outputs below):
LinuxMint linux # mkfs.ntfs /dev/sdb1
Failed to access '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory
The device doesn't exist; did you specify it correctly?
LinuxMint linux # mkfs.ntfs /dev/sdb
Could not open /dev/sdb: no media
So on, It can't recognize my usb device at all.
Look at fdisk output: Command:
