Re: usb 16go key copy problem on SAM

Broadblues, I'm verry interested to know how format the key on linux as FAT32 as I have also linux on the SAM !!!

Could you explain that to me ???

Okay. Follow these instructions with care. They assume your stick has just one partition.

First read do

man mkfs.vfat

and read the manual for the mkfs.vfat program

Then insert your usb key and workout out which device it appears as in /dev

If you have no other scsi or usb devices it will most likely be /dev/sda1
It's probably best to list /dev before and after inserting to see which is the new device


ls -l /dev/sd*

insert key

ls -l /dev/sd*

see whats added

Then to format as FAT32 do

su -c "mkfs.vfat -F FAT32 /dev/sda1"

That should be all you need.

I don't have my key here to test on to make sure that is the only options required, but I think it is right.
