Questions about USB stick

Recommended Posts

Not sure how to go about this.

I plugged in a 32 GB flash drive into the Nano and it shows up in dmesg as well as USB devices. and fdisk -l shows the drive as /dev/sdb but not sdb1 or sdb2.

However it doesn't mount automatically.

I figure I should edit the fstab file but don't want to screw anything up.

I tried making a directory and mounting but it says /etc/fstab no such file or directory.

Anybody have any ideas?

Disk /dev/sda: 60751872 sectors,  992M
Logical sector size: 512
Disk identifier (GUID): 5f05cf2c-b0d3-445b-ab4c-189f378d956a
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 60751838

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1              40          409639        200M   0700  
   2          411648        60749823       28.7G   0700

First I'd try executing

mount /dev/DEVICE_NAME /mnt

If that works and you can access the flash drive at /mnt I'd add

config 'mount'
    option    target        '/sd'
    option    device        '/dev/DEVICE_NAME'
    option    fstype        'auto'
    option    options        'rw,sync'
    option    enabled        '1'

to fstab.

to fstab.

Yup, I've tried that and it tells me fstab does not exist.

Thanks for the response.

Barry, I think you nailed it on the head. For some reason, I through that exFat was compatible with Linux. Maybe it is maybe it isn't, I haven't double checked. But my instinct after reading your comment makes me believe you are right.

Now I have to research whether Windows or mac will read linux format for faster easier file transfer.

Thanks for the link. I have bookmarked it with a note for reference.

I have a 16GB SanDisk Cruzer I want to use with my NANO for storage. The system sees it and I execute the format button and save the fstab file. The is no /tmp/fstab file (I see the sym link from /etc/fstab). I never see the light go on the USB stick when the format starts. It looks like the system sees it, but does not format it. I followed to the format file in: /pineapple/modules/Advanced/formatSD/format_sd

It looks like this is not setup or meant to use an USB drive. Is that correct?

I see these in 'dmesg'

[ 612.870000] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 5 using ehci-platform
[ 613.000000] usb-storage 1-1.3:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected
[ 613.020000] scsi host1: usb-storage 1-1.3:1.0
[ 720.450000] usb-storage 1-1.2:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected
[ 720.470000] scsi host2: usb-storage 1-1.2:1.0

[ 614.020000] scsi 1:0:0:0: Direct-Access SanDisk Cruzer Fit 1.00 PQ: 0 ANSI: 6

The fstab file on the page does not look right either:

config 'mount'
option target '/sd'
option device '/dev/sdcard/sd1'
option fstype 'auto'
option options 'rw,sync'
option enabled '1'

I did try to format it on my linux host and that was no good. I did a reet several times, no good. I am running 1.0.5. I did not try this with lower firmware.

Thanks,

Jim

I got my NANO 2 weeks ago. I have exactly the same problem.

I use a PNY 32Gb USB DRIVE

I tried to format with the web interface. Web interface says "SUCCESS" but usb drive doesn't mount after reboot

I tried format EXT4 with gparted, USB Drive doesn't mount automatically

 

web interface shows

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 154b:005b PNY

fdisk ouput

Disk /dev/sdb: 32.7 GB, 32717537280 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3977 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/sdb1   *           1        3978    31949696  83 Linux

 

FSTAB

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/sdb1'
    option fstype 'auto'
    option options 'rw,sync'
    option enabled '1'

Sorry for my bad english.
