I've always had this problem after making a USB flash drive an installation medium for Chakra. After I'm done with it and want to return it back to it's original state there's always a UDF partition that is left over and no matter what I do I can't get rid of it since it is read-only apparently. I now have two thumb drives with un-removable partition and it's extremely annoying! I've tried everything even as far as killing the DOS File Table and replacing it with GUID, then back to DOS, but the partition is still there!
Before it would always say it can't mount it now it says
[ 2724.653752] UDF-fs: warning (device sdh): udf_load_vrs: No anchor found
[ 2724.653756] UDF-fs: Rescanning with blocksize 2048
[ 2724.671149] UDF-fs: Partition marked readonly; forcing readonly mount
[ 2724.672368] UDF-fs: INFO Mounting volume 'CL_20120414', timestamp 2012/04/15 15:34 (1f10)
Here's the listing from mount
/dev/sdh on /media/CL_20120414_ type udf (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=100,umask=77,iocharset=utf8,uhelper=udisks)
Can someone please tell me how to remove this damn thing?!?!?

This came up before:
Try serraemeira's suggestion in post #9
Be careful to get the correct device - dd isn't called data destroyer for nothing!
That did it, thanks!
