Brand New Mark V not Mounting any SD cards

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I think my Pineapple that was delivered on wednesday is faulty, im not able to get the SD card to mount on the device at all
iv tried a brand new 4G and 32G card however if i use an external USB memory card reader plugged in to the device it works correctly.
out put from mounted Drives

I have modified the FSTab to allow for me to add infusions to the USB SD card reader however this is not ideal
I Ran fdisk and other then the MTDBlocks this is all that shows up. again the sdb is plugged in to the SD card reader
root@Pineapple:~# fdisk -l

Out of the Logs i can see what i think it the SD card attempting to load via sg0 ??
but i cannot cd to /dev/sg0

Which appears that the Disk is attempting to mount but cannt ??
or am i looking in the wrong direction.
if the device is faulty then id like to send it back for a replacement device as its only 3 days old and has not worked from the moment it arrived

You don't mount SCSI-Generic devices. You mount drives.

Since fdisk can tell you what the partition table on the card is, neither the card nor the reader are faulty in any obvious way.

The 'fdisk -l' command tells you the drive device is /dev/sdb1 so try mounting that.
