Gnome Disk Utility let me format a USB Drive. I don't no when this started, because a few weeks ago everything worked just fine. Now
Gnome Disk Utility just throws an error
Error synchronizing after initial wipe: Timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark, 0).
If I use
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb to clear out the drive I can format it, but then I appears to be owned by
root and i can't change the permissions either.
Somebody got an idea how this comes or how to fix it?
I still got the same problem and have tried nearly everything I could come up with or find elsewhere. If I plug in any usb drive it automounts, but i can't access it without
root privileges. I tried to change the ownership with
chown, but it only gives me
Operation not permitted as an error.
