Finally got my sdram chip formatted properly for the Optio W10:
jcomeau@intrepid:~$ fdisk /dev/sdb
Command (m for help): t Selected partition 1 Hex code (type L to list codes): e Changed system type of partition 1 to e (W95 FAT16 (LBA))
Command (m for help): w The partition table has been altered!
Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.
WARNING: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 13: Permission denied. The kernel still uses the old table. The new table will be used at the next reboot or after you run partprobe(8) or kpartx(8)
WARNING: If you have created or modified any DOS 6.x partitions, please see the fdisk manual page for additional information. Syncing disks. jcomeau@intrepid:~$ sudo mkfs.vfat -F16 -f2 /dev/sdb1 mkfs.vfat 3.0.12 (29 Oct 2011) jcomeau@intrepid:~$
