USB card isn't recognized in Nemo after plugging it in

Post by heartnotes » Sat Jul 21, 2018 8:46 am

I can see it in the Terminal after using sudo fdisk -l but how do I mount it so I can use it for Unetbootin to make a boot repair disk? Thanks. It is a Sandisk 64 USB plugged into a front USB terminal.

Suggestion ; Try the Disks program to see if it is recognized. If that doesn't help, install Gparted and try that. (remember to use the drop down list box in the upper right corner of gparted to switch to your usb)
Any recognition of your usb stick?

Hi heartnotes,

You can always unplug the USB stick wait about 12 seconds, and plug it into another USB port, wait a little bit to see if it is recognized...

Alright, so using Disks I can see it, format it, etc to its full amount, but it's still not showing up in Nemo under Devices.

I also found it in Gparted.

Like other here, i would suggest you to use Disk Management to format the USB. USB card isn't recognized resulted from many different causes, such as connecting USB drive via bad USB port,USB flash drive has a corrupted registry entry,damaged files or bad sectors on the stick, or the USB drive is not been formatted correctly. In most times, formatting or reformatting it could be a nice solution. You can format it using Disk Management. Right-click My Computer->Mange->Disk Management->Right-click the USB->Choose "Format...". If this USB is quite stubborn and cannot be formatted in this way, please try some professional format tool to get it done, aomei partition is highly recommended to this.
