I got this pretty cool flash drive as a gift and I can't seem to use it. Every time I plug it in, a pop up comes up that says: The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer.
I opened up Disk Utility and tried to erase it, in the hope of making it readable. It shows the loading bar and after a couple minutes, a pop-up appears and says: Disk Erase failed with the error: Unable to write to the last block of the device. So I remove it, and try again with no avail. I even tried using terminal and the
diskutil eraseVolume command and I get:
newfs_hfs: write (sector 0): Invalid argument Mounting disk Could not mount disk2 with name (null) after erase Error: -69832: File system formatter failed
So I tookit out, and tried again with
diskutil randomDisk just to see if I couldeven write on it. and then I got this:
Started erase on disk2 Error: -69879: Couldn't open disk Underlying error: 2: POSIX reports: No such file or directory
Does anyone have any idea how I can make this drive readable?
