Hi Experts,

 

Issue started on a Windows 7 machine when I tried to format the key with Win32 DiskImager, as this was mentioned as TESTED and WORKING, don't recall the exact page.

Key is a brick, and would like some help to see if there is a way of recovering it, as this was a bit expensive for me.

 

In linux when clicking on the key a pop-up displays:

 

Unable to access "xxxxxx"

Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /run/media/user/xxxxx: Wrong fs type, /dev/sdb1 has an invalid superblock or missing helper program.

 

 

When attempting to format:

 

Error formatting volume

Error synchronizing after initial wipe: Timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark,0)

 

Whether I try to format it: Internal disk for use with Linux systems only (Ext4) or FAT issue is the same.

 

Light blinks on the key for a sec and stops but thats it.

 

From the log messages during key insertion we can see it does recognize it.

 

$ sudo tail /var/log/messages
