SD Card Reader not mounting

Post by agiacoio » Fri Feb 05, 2016 4:49 am

Laptop will not mount any SD CARD I insert into the laptop SD CARD Reader. The reader is internal to laptop, not external. I have tried external units as well and nothing works. I need the additional storage space. I know the card works as it has been mounted with no issues on a Windows 10 and Mac.

OS - Linux Mint 17.3 (no mac OS)

I can tell you that the internal SD card reader on a 2009 MacBook Pro works under Mint 17.3 KDE. No special configuration or drivers needed.

Figured it out

I reformatted it as MS-DOS, not Fat32, NTFS for ExFAT and it worked! It takes a minute or two to mount but looks god so far.

Spoke to soon, putting the computer asleep or rebooting and it freezes.
