ExFAT Error *SOLVED*

Post#1 by willard » 04 Dec 2016, 04:04

Re: 3.1, 32-bit
Hi,
With 'exfat-utils-1.2.1-i486-1_slack.xzm' activated, Porteus cannot read ExFAT formatted thumb drive.
Activating ExFAT-utility on other distros functioned OK.

you might also need the fuse-exfat package

Hi,
With exfat-util & fuse-exfat activated:
Unknown filesystem type 'exfat'.
It shouldn't be that tuff!

Try as root:

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/test
mount.exfat /dev/sdXN /mnt/test
ls /mnt/test
or

Code: Select all

mount.exfat-fuse /dev/sdXN /mnt/test
(sdXN = whatever your device is eg. sdb1)
