I'm trying to format an SD card to use with an Arduino Ethernet. I've been trying to follow the instructions on the site: http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/SDCardNotes
, but have run into a problem.
When I enter df
, the SD card does not show up. However, if I enter cat /proc/scsi/scsi
, I can clearly see the SD card listed. If I enter sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
, I can see the SD card in /dev/sdb
, so I know where it is.
However, when I try to enter sudo mkdosfs -F 16 /dev/sdb
, I get the following error:
mkdosfs 3.0.12 (29 Oct 2011)
mkdosfs: Device partition expected, not making filesystem on entire device '/dev/sdb' (use -I to override)
I'm pretty new to Fedora, so I'm not sure what mkdosfs is trying to tell me. Is it okay for me to override, or will that not do what I want it to?
