I am trying to use an usb stick that I recently formatted and it doesn’t show up in the file manager and I can’t open it.I tried lsusb and the flash drive showed up there but I don’t know how to access it.I am just so new to linux.
Normally just unplug the stick and plug it in. Pretty straight forward.
Anyway… is it listed in:
How did you format it? Which file system? Is it encrypted? Is it a new disk? Does it work on a live cd?
I unplugging it and plugging it back in was the first thing I tried and unfortunately now I am here.And also it doesn’t seem to show up with lsblk
I formatted it as ntfs using GParted.
That is strange… please run:
sudo dmesg --follow-new
Then unplug the stick and plug it in and post the output here (copy&paste)
this is the output

When pasting terminal output, add three backticks ` OR 3 tilde ~ above and below the text:
I did it this time for you. Please do it like this in the future.
Well here you see the partitions on that usb stick, which are assigned to sda[1-4]. So here is no problem.
Can you try mounting it?
sudo mount --verbose --mkdir /dev/sda1 /tmp/sda1
And check if it is there?
Please post the output, so we can follow you.
I am not sure if those are the partitions of the usb because I am dual booting manjaro with windows that is on sda and linux is on sdb alongside some more windows.Shouldn’t the usb be sdc?But maybe I should try mounting anyway because dmesg finds it.
Likely… but with that information I would assume it that way. Anyway… information are needed.
sudo parted -l
Is it a USB3 plugged into a USB2 port? I have one that stopped being backwards compatible after being connected to a Windows 10 system.
Kinda.It’s a usb2 plugged into a usb3 port
It doesn’t show up.I am a bit scared to mount it though because this is where windows is.
I think there is nothing more coming from your side and I will not pull anything out of your nose. Good luck, I’m out of here.
I accidently fixed it!I restored it with fedora media writer because it was on my pc and I had nothing to lose.It seemed interesting when I saw it as an option.Originally I wanted to write an iso to it to see if it finds it and what will happen when I write a iso image.So yeah I don’t know how I fixed it but I did.Thanks a lot to everyone who helped!
