DiskPart Problem: Cannot Select Partition

When working with USB drive, the DiskPart command cannot select the partition of the USB disk:

C:\Users\Administrator>diskpart

Microsoft DiskPart version 6.1.7601

On computer: DIXINYAN-M17X

DISKPART> list disk

  Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
   --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
   Disk 0    Online          931 GB  3072 KB
   Disk 1    Online         3726 GB      0 B        *
   Disk 2    Online         1901 MB      0 B

DISKPART> select disk 2

Disk 2 is now the selected disk.

Disk 2 is a USD drive, select it:

DISKPART> list part

  -------------  ----------------  -------  -------
* Partition 1    Primary           1901 MB      0 B

DISKPART> select part 1

There is no partition selected.

Somehow the partition cannot be selected and manipulated. After searching around, it seems the only solution to to recreate the partition with DiskPart:

DISKPART> clean

DiskPart succeeded in cleaning the disk.

DISKPART> create part primary

DiskPart succeeded in creating the specified partition.

DISKPART> list part

  Partition ###  Type              Size     Offset
   -------------  ----------------  -------  -------
* Partition 1    Primary           1901 MB    64 KB

Now Partition 1 can be selected:

DISKPART> select part 1

Partition 1 is now the selected partition.

DISKPART> active

DiskPart marked the current partition as active.

DISKPART> format fs=fat32 quick

  100 percent completed

DiskPart successfully formatted the volume.
