A familiy member asked me if I could look at a USB flash drive with valuable content that "didn't work on the Mac". Thought I could try it on my Linux machine with more tools to work with. But I can't get anything out of it. Not listed in
fdisk -l, not listed in
blkid. However I do find traces of it with
[ 0.829225] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: xHCI Host Controller [ 0.829230] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1 [ 0.830380] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: hcc params 0x200077c1 hci version 0x100 quirks 0x00109810 [ 0.830385] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: cache line size of 64 is not supported [ 0.836824] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: xHCI Host Controller [ 0.836826] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 2 [ 1.211540] usb 1-2: new high-speed USB device number 2 using xhci_hcd [ 1.568206] usb 1-5: new high-speed USB device number 3 using xhci_hcd [ 1.968193] usb 1-7: new full-speed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd [ 141.038788] usb 1-2: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using xhci_hcd [ 141.528193] usb 1-2: new high-speed USB device number 5 using xhci_hcd
But I don't know where to go from here, or if this info is useful at all. Searched the web, but I am stuck. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I should add that they said they used some program on the MacBook to write to the disk. Not a conventional file manager.
