Hi
I have a 32 MB USB flash memory . It used to go all wright but now I can't mount it. I used mount command and I get :

[root@localhost /]# mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
or too many mounted file systems
(aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
instead of some logical partition inside?)

So I used fdisk command and I get:

[root@localhost /]# fdisk -l /dev/sda1

Disk /dev/sda1: 1164.1 GB, 1164188782080 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 141537 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

And it's wrong
So What can I do to fix it

My Linux is RH9

I'd suggest you first try just plain old 'mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1'.

Does that say it's 1164gigs? O_o

Anyways, try formating it (or trying it in a diffrent computer).

Just try different combinations of /dev/sda1 or /dev/sda2 or /dev/sdb1..etc.
It may work out.

In windows XP, see if you're able to format it (FAT partition type).
