Nope - but you have to use /dev/sdf instead of /dev/sdc if you want
fdisk to tell you anything about the drive. This is why you were
getting the unable to open /dev/sdc error message from fdisk.

Of course!
And this is what now comes out of the woodwork:
fdisk /dev/sdf1 -l
Disk /dev/sdf1: 4089 MB, 4089428992 bytes
126 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1022 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 7812 * 512 = 3999744 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x69737369

This doesn't look like a partition table
Probably you selected the wrong device.

I thought I covered this on an earlier message - /dev/sdf is the
entire drive, and what fdisk needs to look at. /dev/sdf1 is a
partition, and does NOT have the partition table. This is what fdisk
is trying to tell you.

On a side note - you normally put the option first, and then the
device. In this case, it does not matter, but with some programs it

Yes you're right, you made it clear, but I  made a mistake, sorry for that.

This is the result:
[root localhost par]# /sbin/fdisk -l /dev/sdf

Disk /dev/sdf: 4089 MB, 4089445376 bytes
33 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3841 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2079 * 512 = 1064448 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x7ef87cc2

  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdf1               1        3842     3993583    b  W95 FAT32
