Memory Stick Pro Duo Medium Errors


Good day everyone,

I have a Memory Stick Pro Duo card which has recently stopped working. I cannot mount it through automount or manually. Upon insertion (with automounting active) /var/log/messages reports the following errors:

Code:
kernel: sde : very big device. try to use READ CAPACITY(16).
kernel: sde : READ CAPACITY(16) failed.

(And so on...)
Now, my best guess is that there's a problem reading the partition table, so I'd hoped to use fdisk to fix the problem by rebuilding the table. Unfortunately, "fdisk /dev/sde" returns "Unable to read /dev/sde".

If anyone has any suggestions as to the nature of the problem or the solution, please post away.

You can try zeroing the device with:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sde bs=512 count=16

You might be able to format it after that. If not, return it for repair/replacement if it's still under warranty.
