The system detect my SD card but I can't mount it.

This is the lsblk:

my@my-N61Jq ~ $ lsblk

sdb                          8:16   1  29,3G  0 disk 

and the lsusb:

my@my-N61Jq ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 058f:6366 Alcor Micro Corp. Multi Flash Reader

Any solution?


my-N61Jq ~ # blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="8cac68af-e4cf-4751-8137-43ebd72c7aee" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/sda5: UUID="FcpGUy-5H07-e5kx-qM0Z-dUyS-MTju-REjs9M" TYPE="LVM2_member" 
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-root: UUID="dacda9a2-8b68-4ced-bd83-5f9e75c0e8fe" TYPE="ext4" 
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-swap_1: UUID="d9ba0894-a487-45cd-a8e4-a0b5e41ca147" TYPE="swap"

  • Did you want an automatic mount? Have you tried doing a manual mount? It is quite straightforward. You need the output from blkid. – Faheem Mitha Aug 6 '14 at 17:06
  • I try to do manual mount but I cant: There is nothing in the blkid about sd card – kesivsk Aug 6 '14 at 17:21

    What does fdisk -l says? some cards show up as /dev/mmcblk* ; what does dmesg say when you insert/connect it? – Rui F Ribeiro Mar 29 '16 at 8:57

Here is an example, from my /etc/fstab

UUID="4E1AEA7B1AEA6007" /mnt/passport  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0

You can use any mount point. Here I am using /mnt/passport. You find the UUID by using blkid. After you have added this to your /etc/fstab, run

mount pathname
  • Paste into the question, please. is your SD plugged in and turned on (if necessary)? – Faheem Mitha Aug 6 '14 at 17:35
  • Yes, my sd runs ok and is plugged in. – kesivsk Aug 6 '14 at 18:12
  • @kesivsk Strange. I've used various external USB mass storage devices, and blkid always detects them. Is it possible the SD card needs to be configured as a mass storage device? Have you tested in on another OS, eg OS X, Windows? Ok, on second thoughts, this is a multi-flash reader. Do you have a card plugged into the reader? – Faheem Mitha Aug 6 '14 at 18:18
  • is an internal card reader. I have tried with a lot of sd and no one is detected – kesivsk Aug 6 '14 at 18:30
  • Please clarify if this works with another OS. Have you tested it? – Faheem Mitha Aug 6 '14 at 18:34
