Thanks, Rodney:

{Much would depend on the partitioning tool that you are using.

Using a GUID partition table on a thumb drive might also be problematic,
as would be defining same as "internal"

SD cards and probably also thumb drives do work reasonably reliably with
ext4 file-systems - but running same without journalling disabled would
cause high wear.}

So I installed GParted. Which immediately found and fixed some 
storage-quantity error in sdf.

Next I used Disks to FAT-format the thumb-drive. Getting this error!

{Error formatting volume
Error erasing device: Error writing 1048576 bytes to 
dev/sdf1:Input/output error (udisks-error-quark, 0).}
