Can't write to USB Flash Drive
I have a pair of 4GB USB flash drives that I can't use. To be specific, these drives can't be written to at all.
I've attempted most of the obvious things. I've tried to remove/reformat the FAT32 partitions using Gparted. Fdisk doesn't recognize the partitions at all. Cfdisk outputs that "Partition begins after end-of-disk," Dosfsck finds all sorts of errors on thee drives but refuses to correct them. Mkdosfs didn't do anything. I tried to zero-out the drives using DD to no avail. Ditto for badblocks.
There is a small amount of data (one file) on each of these drives but nothing important. I don't care about recovering the data. I just want to be able to make these drives usable again.
Anyone have any suggestions?
