problem with read only usb filesystem
hi everyone, as you an see, im new here, so go easy on me.
well, i am not new to linux,, but i lack bash scriipting ability, and i think im gonna need it for my problem
the case is : i have a 16 GB usb stick that i used for installing systems to other machines, someday, and somehow, it screwed up, i dont know why, but im kinda sure it was the PC-BSD iso faullt, well, i cant format it, not even with Gparted, i tried sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb ... it didnt work, the thing said me that it cant be written, so i tried sudo shred -vfz /dev/sdb, i also failed, those are my only two massive destruction commands, and they failed, so im beat, i tried formating with that thing called window$, it failed too
i tried to mount it read write, but still the problem persists, testdisk also failed, andthat didnt help i ran outta options, i dont know what to do now, i searched the web too, but that didnt help
so i came here, someone can please help me?, but dont rush at me because im a nOOb, i know i am, but still i can learn
so.. who can help me with this?
sorry for the bad english
