Troubles with gnome-format



	I was using a geekstick (Sandisk Cruzer 4 GB) when the power went 
out suddenly. It doesn't boot any more. 

	My thought was to format it, and re-install the bootable Crunchee 
(clone of crunchbang linux) that it had before. 

	Inserted into this machine, it automounts, and Properties shows 
it as /media/disk. When I try to format it, either to FAT or to ext2, it 
pops up an error saying permission is denied -- for /dev/sdc

	I ran both chown -r btth:btth both against /media/disk and 
against /dev/sdc; it seemed to complete normally (or at least, without 
any message) both times.

	But gnome-format still fails, still with the same error.
