256GB Micro SD Card not deteted properly on Ubuntu Studio 19.04

Postby MCJosiah » Wed Oct 16, 2019 5:06 pm

So it turns out that my little Dell Inspirion 3000 can run Ubuntu Studio 19.04 but now I have a really big problem.

Ubuntu Studio 19.04 isn't detecting my 256GB MicroSD properly. I found it. It comes up in computer:/// when I do cntr-l but it labeled as "SC265" & when I try too mount it it says something along the line of "Can mount/Not mountable".

I need to have it cause it has all my VSTs, Projects, & Soundkits on it & my laptop only has a 32GB EMMC drive, & I would hate to have to keep a flash drive in my laptop cause my laptop only has 2 USB ports & I would like to use one for my MIDI keyboard & another for my audio interface.

Can anyone help me with this problem?

If you open a terminal and type :

Code: Select all

lsblk
it will show all the disks (block devices) connected.

So I decided to reinstall Lubuntu 18.04.3 instead cause it's more lighter weight & I've been watching alot of tutorials & doing alot of playing around & I think I wanna build the OS on my laptop for music production from the ground up. Like after I get this SD Card problem fixed(If I do, if not I'm getting a new laptop), I'm gonna install the low-latency kernel, KX Studio stuff, & Ubuntu Studio stuff.

One major problem I'm dealing with again is Lubuntu 18.04.3 is not detecting my SD Card reader. I tried to install the drivers for Realtek & it came up in the terminal but still couldn't be seen in the file manager but when I restarted & did the lsblk command the SD Card reader was gone again. Here's the latest screenshot(I added as a file, still a newbie here, lol!!!)

If I can't get the SD Card reader to work then I'm probably gonna sell my laptop & get a different one. Like a Dell Latitude or something like that.

I'm surprised the card doesn't appear. lsblk shows the card, not the card reader, so the card would have to be in.

You can see if the card reader appears on the USB bus with :

Code: Select all

lsusb

To copy text from a terminal select it with the mouse then use Ctrl+Alt+c. Then paste it here in a code box.

Well I went though one more OS change to Ubuntu-Mate cause I found it a bit better than Lubuntu. After typing the command you gave me, it does show that Ubuntu-Mate(I have 18.04 LTS) detects the card reader. It's just not detecting my SD card. But here's what it shows:

Code: Select all

Hi! Is the SD Card formatted? If so, what is the file system? Chances are that you might need to install a package to enable support for the filesystem your SD card is formatted with.
Check my Linux audio experiments on my SoundCloud.
Browse my AUR packages.

I think it's exFat but I'm not sure. It was in my smartphone before my laptop & I think my smartphone was the thing that originally formatted it. The smartphone it was in before my laptop was a Samsung Galaxy S8 Active.

If it's exfat do this (had exactly the same problem with a sd card from an android phone):

$ sudo apt install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
