Hi. I wasn't sure which topic this falls under as it sort of concerns both OS and this is, I'm sure, a really noob (I want to start learning linux) question but can i use one pen drive between the 2 different OS's?
Earlier I was using my pen drive which is a SanDisk Cruzer Pop 4GB between my Windows 8.1 laptop and my recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 laptop and it was going well. On both laptops I safely removed the pen drive before unplugging it but now the pen drive can't be detected. I've tried it on both laptops and 2 other PCs and its undetected.
If i was suppose to format it somehow to make it compatible to both OS's, well I didn't know so I didn't do so. So basically I just want to know if its broken, is there a way to fix it if it is broken and maybe a kind soul could point me into the right direction so this doesn't happen to my other pen drives (formatting for compatibility perhaps).
Sorry if this seems like a really stupid question. Anyway, thanks in advance!
