Usb flash drive error: Unable to read mount point


See attached screenshot.

Let me know what to do.

Also I have all files it asks for installed including dostools

Henry

Btw I used usb creator, then went to gparted and did something. The system is fat 32 now but with same message, not including ext4 part. Just the mount point message, and something about dosftools and mtools, wihich also are installed.

Work around is ok, but I believe fixing the issue with mounting point, will in efect resolve both problems.
