Subject description: There seems to be some low lever problems regarding usb sticks
 

I'm running 18.06 from USB and HD/Frugal.
When trying to create a new 18.06 flash drive using GBootflash usb installer I go through all the normal steps until I get to the actual install. It then fails saying that it can't mount the usb stick.
I tried to use Universal installer. It reports that the usb stick is not formatted so I go to gparted and it fails to format (fat32) the stick with no further info....

Then...
I go to my install of Precise on another partition of the same machine and everything works !!!!

I've tried using about 5 or 6 different usb sticks and they all fail in upupbb but all work on precise.

I don't understand what gives.

Thanks

CCAAEE

Try deleting the existing stick partition with the working system, then reboot into upupbb abd see what gparted says when you try to create a partition in it. It will at least give you an idea if the stick is dying or if it's just been formatted on the wrong system (32bit<>64bit or version), I know it's not suppose to matter but it ocasionally does.
