The device is usually /dev/sda, /dev/sdb or so. A device name refers

is not the entire disk. It is just a single partition. It doesn't have a partition table of its own, so it makes no sense to run fdisk
I want to increase the /dev/sda1 with aproximativ 200 gb who remains ! My plans are: i want to make /dev/sda3 and i want to put in
I find this somewhat confusing. So what is it you actually want to do? Increase sda1
or create sda3

. Perhaps I missed/misunderstood something in your post.
