I have problem with my USB flash drive: block device file appears in /dev (/dev/sdc) but when I try launch fdick, mount or event cat on it, "No media found" error rises
root@nuclight:~# ls -l /dev | g sdc brw-rw---T 1 root floppy 8, 32 Aug 1 14:05 sdc root@nuclight:~# fdisk /dev/sdc fdisk: unable to open /dev/sdc: No medium found
Device also appears in lsusb output:
root@nuclight:~# lsusb ... Bus 008 Device 002: ID 13fe:3100 Kingston Technology Company Inc. 2/4 GB stick
