unable to get drive geometry when mkfs.vfat
I got this message when I tried to format my eternal usb hard disk to vfat format. Do you know what it is about?
# /sbin/mkfs.vfat /dev/uba3
mkfs.vfat 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
unable to get drive geometry, using default 255/63
i have umount all the /media/
I have done an experiment on /dev/uba3. I was able to /sbin/mkfs.ext3 /dev/uba3 but not on mkfs.vfat
