Bro, it would take a minute to list all the cards and setups, I have tried on all but one and that is my project today. I just got back from microcenter where I bought a Scandisk cruzer 128g sd and no worki!!!!

I have tried on winders, Kali Linux, my phone (best method for pineapple btw) and today I am building a raspberry pi tablet, I got the case and screen from microcenter as I already have the pi 3 B+. I will be using the arm kali linux. Then I will test a theory I have involving the pineapple. In my own test environment on my personal network. There are so many ways to use the pineapple's power.

I don't really need the sdcard but who knows maybe one day I might. I just don't like being defeated by a technical issue 😞

So how did you load the SD card into the Pineapple? I can see my SD at /dev/sda when I run fdisk -l and for the initial setup I used Win10.  My SD card is SanDisk Ultra 32gb.

This are the steps that worked for me:

Pineapple format SD CARD

  1.  Insert SD Card in Pineapple
  2. Connect Pineapple to PC and SSH
  3. Run fdisk /dev/sda
  4. d to delete previous partitions
  5. Create a new partition
    1. n
    2. e
    3. 1-4
    4. 1st cylinder default
    5. last cylinder default
  6. s to  create a new empty Sun disklabel
  7. p to print the partition table
  8. w
  9. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda/
  10. Remove and insert back the SD card.
  11. Install modules.

@divxpr I'm sorry about the time difference here... I'm at work rn but in like 2-3 hours I'll post here exactly what I did... it could just be a coincidence that it worked but yes first thing I tried was formatting it in a terminal.

I too am at work. I will try your method when I get off ..  Got HiddenEye going on my vm box and ready. Now I will set up the pineapple landing page to spread the good news about faster internet. 😜😜😜😜 

I will then connect through that link from my ipad, raspberry pi, cellphone and laptop to see what happens.

I would use msfvenom but these are my devices and don't want to take a chance of anyone taking advantage. 

Though I know the odds are extremely low, I know this because 99% off  ppl are too stupid, I see them everywhere I go and trust me I am sure you could ask them for their pass and they would not only give it to you but invite you over for tea. 😁😜😁😜😁😜😁😜

Great question, I have tried many sizes and brands except the 4gb. They all can he seen in the advanced screen under usb but it just won't work. I will be trying divxpr's way when I am off tomorrow. Good luck. Microcenter has some kingstons branded with the microcenter logo. Been using them for years without any issue. Start there as they are a great bargain!! I also have high end ones as well. I keep telling myself imma make something killer with them one day 😁😁😁

Excellent response thanks. I take it that it is a micro and not standard fit? 

Cheers 😎

No workie bro. Even bought a brand new laptop and a new 129gb stick.

 

This is my output, if I had to guess I would say whatever that "layers" does seems to mask my drive somehow but I really have no idea, in Kali my drive shows as /dev/sdb/ even your instructions did not work.

Maybe I am missing a simple fundamental step?

Hi buddy,

I got the ScanDisc 128GB and put that micro in the side of the Pineapple Nano. I then went to the advanced menu in the pine settings.

I then clicked on the drop down menu (downwards arrow next to the word USB) and selected format SD card.

Job done  

I then noticed the option to save my selected Modules to the SD (Module Manager).

NB. I decided to delete all modules that I had on my internal storage and reselected all and saved each one to the SD.

I hope this helps in some way.

keep at it buddy.

cheers 😎

PS. I found issues with Kingston SD cards, and have converted to Scan Disc for reliability, even if they are slightly more expensive.

Oh, I see. I don’t believe the drive is the issue, as I was working on the assumption that it was a nano issue. If you have the nano and follow the directions I provided I believe it should work for you. 

Fingers crossed buddy

Cheers 😎

Sorry i forgot to post this here so...

 

Ok well basically since I could not get any good of it in a Linux machine I decided to go out in Windows so I open up command prompt and type in DISKPART then type in list disk and select whichever disc you want it's likely number 3 or 4 or whatever is at the bottom I don't know how many hard drives you have it'll show the volume that's all you'll have to go by... then you need to type "select disk 3" for example

Then type clean and it should fully format the drive it will then be formatted to a raw drive which has no partitions on it... you can do this in Linux but just did not work for me and I don't know why...

Then you need to go into a program called... I don't know what it's called... but all you have to do in the search thing is type "part" and it will come up as create and change partitions or something like that... 

Then you need to right click and follow the steps and format it to exfat

Then what I did was completely wipe the pineapple and start the installation on an Android phone but while wiping it leave the SD card inside it...

this just work for me I don't know why it could be just freak accident or it could legit be the key I really don't know if it works let me know that's what I did

Well I am not sure how I missed the micro sd slot but that did it. All along I see ppl mention sd card.. Not micro sd. I never realized that was on the side of the damn thing!!! But nevertheless works like a charm!!! Now if the ssid pool would quit disappearing!! Thanks for the help. I spent way more time than I should have because my dumb ass didn't RTFM!!!!!!

Ok here is the skinny, could not wait to get home and play with everything  🙂

So I figured now the MICRO SD card is working and all I went ahead and did a fresh firmware flash and man let me tell ya, this thing is working perfectly!!!!

In hindsight now I think I know why things were acting up, I had no space for logs, dependencies and such. This thing is extremely limited without that MICRO SD card.

Welp, about to go play in module land 🙂

I hope after this 4 page thread everyone has a working MICRO SD card and the pineapple is just a purrin'

Hello Everyone

Yesterday I got my first nano (yay me :D) and couldn't get the SD card to work. It did show up as `/dev/sda`. I changed the fstab but that didn't change anything. I tried different card formattings (ext4, exFat, etc) and even the "Format SD Card" option didn't work (nothing happened after pressing it). I am usig the latest FW 2.6.0.

After a long night I figured it out. If your problem looks the same this might help you.
Here's how I did it:

  1. Format SD Card
    cat /pineapple/modules/Advanced/formatSD/fdisk_options | fdisk /dev/sda
  2. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1
    mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda2
    mkswap /dev/sda2
  3. mkdir /sd
  4. change fstab to:
    config global
    	option anon_swap '0'
    	option anon_mount '0'
    	option auto_swap '1'
    	option auto_mount '1'
    	option delay_root '5'
    	option check_fs '0'
    
    config mount
    	option target '/sd'
    	option device '/dev/sda1'
    	option fstype 'auto'
    	option options 'rw,sync'
    	option enabled '1'
    
    config 'swap'
            option device '/dev/sda2'
            option enabled '1'
  5. Reboot and the SD Card should be mounted.
