Formatted USB using
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb on Ubuntu OS. SanDisk Ultra drive. USB shows as mounted.
After I click the usb-flash icon in desktop manager, the only thing that shows up is
lost&found directory, locked. I mounted as "rw" as well. I wanted to format the entire usb so I used "sdb" instead of "sdb1". Maybe this was a mistake.
How can I paste files to this USB disk?
mount | grep sdb (using sdb b/c recognized as 'disk'):
/dev/sdb on /media/whoami/538688e2-9342-4344-86a9-02c7b14d7b67 type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,relative,uhelper=udisks2) /dev/sdb on /media type ext4 (rw,relative)
There seems to be a difference between formatting from... 'right-click' on USB in desktop manager, "format", ext4, VERSUS, "sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb". Was able to add files after formatting from desktop manager, not mkfs.ext4
