SD Card now not registering

When I connected to my Pineapple after some time of outside deployment, I found the web interface only showed the default system infusions- and not the ones I install myself. This issue happens often, but is usually solved with a reboot. After a couple of those, it still had the issue. I formatted the SD card in the web interface. Can't install new infusions to the SD card, even after another reboot. I finally factory resetted my pineapple, but it still would not allow me to install new infusions to the SD card. The SD card doesn't even seem to appear under the resources module. Not sure what happened here. Any ideas? Thanks.

ssh in and check /etc/config/fstab, mine had an incorrect path for the sd card device and same thing was happening.

(it is not being mounted properly, changed my path to /dev/sdaX for the sd and swap)

Here is what I have:

root@Pineapple:/etc/config# cat fstab
config global automount
option from_fstab 1
option anon_mount 1
config global autoswap
option from_fstab 1
option anon_swap 0
config mount
option target /sd
option device /dev/sdcard/sd1
option fstype auto
option options rw,sync
option enabled 1
option enabled_fsck 0
config swap
option device /dev/sdcard/sd2
option enabled 1

config mount
       option target   /sd
       option device   /dev/sda1
       option fstype   auto
       option options  rw,sync
       option enabled  1
       option enabled_fsck 0

config swap
       option device   /dev/sda2
       option enabled  1

Change your config mount and config swap, this is mine, yours should probably be the same, but it could be reversed (swap may be sda1 and the /sd mount point may be sda2)

Damn, this is really annoying. I can't get it to work. I have no idea what happened. Here is what is up after a factory reset (let me know if more information is needed, thanks):

The posts above tell you what to try. In what you just posted your SD is mounted as /sda but down in your fstab section it's using sd1 and sd2 instead of maybe sda1 and sda2. Edit it and see what happens.

Hey DrDinosaur,

Sorry for not chiming in earlier, but I had a busy weekend.

First, let me explain the /dev/sdcard/sd1 mystery. Everyone's fstab by default is set to /dev/sdcard/sd1 and that is how it should be. The reason for that is because it is a symlink to whatever /dev/sdX* the sd card is mapped against. We do this to increase the stability and reliability of the sd card randomly disconnecting / not mounting properly / conflicting with plugged in USB sticks.

Now, the reason /dev/sdcard/sd points to /dev/sda is because that is the last known good configuration. But now, your SD card is not being recognized and therefore no /dev/sdcard/sd1 is created and linked to a real /dev/sdX1.

So what does this mean? I think your SD card is dead. This happens - especially with the ones we ship with the Pineapple, they have sadly had issues in the past. You can find more information regarding the sd card issues here.

Best Regards,

Sebkinne

Thanks Seb. I just purchased a 8GB Class 10 Sandisk Micro SD Card. Hopefully that will resolve the issue.
