Reformat Linux USB stick in Windows.
Can anyone tell me where do I find an app to do this, please?
Did so previously and made all the back-ups and notes - now on another linux stick as I wanted to move over completely - but even the stick I left as ISO image is now corrupted.
Did all the searches, this is last resort. Any ideas would be welcome.
Actually recover the stick somehow.
No, the stick is not seen under Windows and it actually causes all related aps to go "Not Responding" with unexpected closures and error reoprts to MS. It does not even show under My Computer> Local Disk>Removable Drive J: where it should be.
Tried UnetBootinWin for the third time with several "Error report to MS" closures - the last being on the "FC11 installation complete" line. OK, let's see.
Tried that in the Aspire and at the moment its busy doing a reset to factory defaults. That is, the stick is still defunct.
The Linux Aspire is out since I tried an FC11 re-install with new stuff learned from Jorge at The Road to Elysium. The stick was used to install FC11 successfully about two months ago and left as is for just this sort of thing. Never used it in between and somehow it got corrupted. Knew this only once the Aspire showed rows of double nines and some diagnostics.
Actually went through this before (except the double nines) and took notes. Moved all the software to my other Linux stick. Bye-bye Windows!! Not yet!
Its more like I need to delete the stick or get some app that will format it without query like UnetBootin. UNB actually sees it as Removable Drive J: Tried other downloads, but no cigar. No recognition even.
Yes, the Aspire is back into Linpus. Maybe that's not a bad idea. Will let you know
