I bought a 32GB ReadyCache on Cyber Monday not knowing it is intended to supplement an existing HDD.
After endlessly trying to format the drive to GPT with ext4 to no avail, I sent a question to Sandisk Support.
They said the drive can be used as a standalone drive after it’s formatted. So, my question is how can I do this and what am I doing wrong?
Each time I create a partition table with a formatted partition I get on the error:
Unable to detect file system! Possible reasons are:
The file system is damaged
The file system is uknown to GParted
There is no file system avaliable (unformatted)
The device entry /dev/sdc1 is missing
Whether I format it to GPT or MBR with ext4, ext2 or Fat32
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!
