How to Format USB flash drive on MAC terminal

File transfer and sharing is common these days.  If someone is using a MAC and he needs to transfer files from his MAC to some other device or wants to copy some files to MAC, USB drive is used.  USB flash drives are very handy and easy to use.  Apple computer has a program “Disk Utility” through which you can format the USB drive on MAC easily.

Formatting a USB Flash drive in Mac OSX can be little different from formatting it in windows.  Formatting a USB flash drive in Mac OS can be done by a GUI app called Disk Utility. This tool is used in all latest versions of Apple Mac OSX including 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8, 10.7 and 10.6.
If you are using a MAC OSX and want to format your USB Flash drive then the steps are easy. There are certain steps which you need to follow.  
You need to reformat it to HFS+ (Mac OS Extended (Journal)) which allows larger file sizes.

One important thing to Note: Keep a backup of your data before beginning the format procedure.  

However, once you have formatted your USB drive and just cannot retrieve your files back then do not panic. In order to get back your precious photos, audios or videos back, the best possible solution to go for will be to download and run Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery Software.

Steps to follow for formatting the USB flash drive on Mac terminal.

1.       Since many USB flash drives are meant to be formatted by windows, so the first step required is to change the drive's formatting to the standard used by OS X (Mac OS X Extended journal). This is so because, the USB drive available in the finder section comes to be formatted as Windows NTFS drive. On This drive, OSX can only read, so we need to reformat it to read and write.
2.        Connect your USB flash drive to your MAC and go to the finder option. Here you will find the applications folder. Go to

Applications>Utilities> Disk Utility

3.       Once you are in Disk Utility application, select the USB drive name and click the erase option. The flash drive should be listed on the left side of the window. 
4.       Make sure that the format dropdown menu has “MS-DOS (FAT)”.option.
5.       Once done, last but not the least, click on the erase tab and you’ll get your USB drive formatted.

Formatting the USB flash drive on MAC by command line.

Formatting the USB flash drive can also be done  using the command line by using diskutil which is the command line interface to Disk Utility, launch Terminal, Applications/Utilities/Terminal – to see a list of your disks:

Command : diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ myUSB disk2

diskutil eraseDisk erases the USB flash drive, formatted as JHFS+ which is the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and is named as myUSB  and the destination disk is defined by its identifier disk2. 


Formatting is a common procedure and can be required anytime. Formatting can be used for freeing up storage space, memory card error handling, taking care of memory cards at regular interval or  erasing existing data. The above guide can help you to guide you through once you need to format your USB flash drive.

Olivia had reasons for that. Karen and Olivia hardly spent time together and since Karen had critical outdoor project shoots to handle and also provide for the house, Olivia silently grieved and wished for his time and attention for the family, especially for their daughter Kim.
There were countless times when Karen did not turned up on time for their promised evening getaway, or a holiday break, or parents meeting at school or even their 8th wedding anniversary!
Karen and Olivia after a lot of counseling from a family friend happily decided to spend their next week in a 5 days holiday trip. Karen also promised to buy Olivia a new cell phone as gift when her cell phone got dropped on the floor and stopped functioning.

The Location was exquisite………the rooms decorated perfectly and the restaurant had the perfect ambience. For Olivia it was a long cherished dream. She didn’t even remember when the last time they had such a holiday break.
Olivia was sitting in the lawn and was lost in the thoughts of their fading marriage and mending their bond. Karen promised to return after a one hour teleconferencing. They had hardly noticed Kim from last 30 minutes. She was busy playing in the lawn with friends. Olivia suddenly broke from her thoughts and looked for Kim but she wasn’t there. Kim…….Kim……Kim…..the voice went unheard leaving Olivia heartbroken, shattered and exhausted after 3 hours of long search.

Use your common sense. Look your surroundings for ample sunlight. Do not take photos when the sun is behind the object.  Watch to see whether the lighting is sufficient for shooting. In case where the light is not sufficient use your camera’s flash to fill the shadows.

This term means how you are positioning your objects .Here the question is comes, that why you are taking the photograph. Sometimes you like a moment and just want to capture the spontaneity out of it. You do not pay attention to the detail that whether to take close focus, blurred background, portrait or anything else. The moment is important not the composition.  
However, sometimes you cannot really tell that whether a collection of photographs are of the same instance or different instances. That’s the magic of photography.  Great photography can drive you to conclude that all the photographs are entirely different from each other, while all of them are clicked in the same location, same time and at same instances.  

The right alignment, the context, and the surroundings of your frame, all are important.

Right Mode
The decision is yours. It is up to you to decide that whether you want your camera to take decision for you or you want to set your mode the right way. There are several screen modes to choose from.

White balance:

14 Reasons Why I prefer Android Phone Over Apple IOS based IPhone

iOS and Android both have lots of feature in common, but when it comes to comparison between the two, it largely depends on user’s  taste, own personal preference and kind of usage pattern. Apple fans will always prefer the iPhone OS as it blends with other Apple products such as Apple Mac, IPods and I pads.

Android as well as IOS both have touchscreen and come with swiping and tapping mechanism.  iOS screen have app icons while  android home screen uses widgets for instant updates regarding weather, emails , calls, texts, etc.

With android phone, it requires only limited number of actions to respond to notifications. I do not have to go to each and every app individually to close/open/attend them. The notifications appear as pop-up windows rather than taking over the whole screen of the device which makes it easier to tap away insignificant notifications and stay connected with what I was previously doing.

Apple’s iPhone has a bit restricted usage when it comes to using apps.  Although Apple’s recently launched IOS 8 has a lot of upgraded feature compared to previous versions in terms of apps, Android was already providing all these apps from long before.  And the best part is Google’s Android is constantly updating with new features.
With Android, only it takes to download unlimited apps available online and which is suitable for the operating system.  Let me share why i choose Android Smartphone over Apple IOS based Iphone.

Tips to Prevent Memory Card from Data Loss

Losing data from memory card is not uncommon and many of the digital camera users come across such situations; but have you ever thought that why this occurs so frequently? Well, one of the biggest reasons for the same is your haphazard ways of handling your digital camera and its memory card.
