Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT] Resetting USB flash
Date: Fri, 04 Jan 2013 16:36:03
1 I was trying to zero out a USB stick and at some point it seems to have locked
2 itself up. By that I mean that for all intends and purposes I cannot write to
3 it in any conceivable way.
5 I tried to delete /dev/sdb1 with c/fdisk, the dd zeros into /dev/sdb1,
6 /dev/sdb and also the first 512B to delete the partition table, but nothing
7 seems to work.
9 /dev/sdb1 is still there no matter how I try to delete/format/overwrite it.
11 Is there a way of resetting whatever needs resetting in the USB flash chip to
12 make it work again?
