I recently flashed my SD card to format and reinstall Linux Mint on my machine. Everything went well, but I have learned that SD cards cannot be use as a boot device.
The problem now is that I am trying to format the SD Card to use again as storage device in my camera, following this tutorial.
I want to format to FAT32 in order to use it every system, according to the instructions.
When I run the command
sudo parted /dev/sdc --script -- mklabel msdos I get the following:
Error: Partition(s) on /dev/sdc are being used.
I checked permissions using
ls -l /dev/sdc and got:
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 32 Feb 14 03:25 /dev/sdc
Changed permissions with
chmod 777 /dev/sdc and remade the first step, and cannot access the SD card to clean it.
I don't know what the "b" means as a permission... is it related to bootable?
I just installed Linux Mint Mate 20.1 and when I insert the SD Card it keeps showing the drive name as Linux Mint MATE 20.1 64-bit Any help would be great.
umountall the partitions of a "disk" before you can alter the structure of the disk by formatting.
