How to format SD Card using Linux

Well, today I had some trouble with my SD Memory Card.

Actually, I use this SD in my mobile but today I turned on the SD Encryption and my Galaxy began to return some errors about the memory… So, to correct it I needed format it again.

In just two quick steps you will be able to do that.

  1. Find which partition the SD Card is connected:
    fdisk -list

    (in my case it was connected on sdg1)

  2. and then formart it:
    mkfs.vfat /dev/sdg1
