  1. It works! Here's my 2 cents. I found the same problem with the 2.7.0 firmware not being able to format SD and mount it properly using default settings. I tried a bunch of things: resetting the firmware, using official SD Format utility to format the micro SD card and then reformat with utility in nano web interface, adding some of the fstab modifications other people here suggested. Nothing seemed to work. So, I decided to pop the freshly formatted(using nano web interface) card out of my nano and take a closer look at the partitions using gparted in linux. In my case, 2GB micro SD card, I found two partitions taking approximately 1 GB each but both indicated an unrecognized filesystem format. Fortunately I had looked at the pineapple SD partitions a while ago and remembered the first partition was linux-swap and the second was ext(4?). To fix the SD partitions (In my case sdb1 and sdb2) for nano, I formatted the sdb2 to linux-swap and the sdb1 to ext4. (Note: for some reason sdb2 appears on the left side of the graphical display in gparted and sdb2 appears on the right which seems backwards.) Then I put the micro SD card back in my nano and rebooted. Seems to work fine now. I do wonder about using a journaling filesystem (ext4) on an sd card. Maybe another filesystem would be a better choice and still mount on the nano. Same goes for swap. Is it necessary or even good to put one on a solid state device like an sd card?
