Cannot Mount Flash Drive


Recommended Posts

I cannot mount my flashdisk that appears in /dev as sda1. It's this product: http://www.alza.cz/a-data-micro-sdhc-32gb-class-10-usb-ctecka-v3-cerna-d256730.htm

It has just 1 FAT32 partition. On my desktop linux it mounts ok, but on pineapple it throws this error:

I've got Pineapple MK4 with 2.3.1 firmware

root@Pineapple:/mnt# mkdir flash

root@Pineapple:/mnt# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash/

mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /mnt/flash/ failed: Invalid argument

Any idea, what do I do wrong?

Thanks.

Have you checked to see that directory is made and writable?

Have you tried formatting thumbdrive to EXT4 with gparted?

sandisk 16gb fit has a fatal error sorta similar to that

I had similar issues until I used the following free windows tool to create a EXT4 Partition on my USB device.

I also had to change my USB path to /dev/sdb5...

config mount

option target /usb

option device /dev/sdb5

option fstype ext4

option options rw,sync

option enabled 1

option enabled_fsck 0
