Ubuntu 13.04 and lower

You need to install exfat support in Ubuntu if you want to use it. Installation procedure:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat

Ubuntu 13.10

For ubuntu 13.10 you should install exfat-utils package, few days ago i tried to install fuse-exfat but saucy no longer have fuse-exfat

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:relan/exfat
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install exfat-utils

I believe this guy have the save problem http://namhuy.net/872/how-to-enable-exfat-on-ubuntu.html

looks like for 13.10 you don't even need the ppa it's just sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse ref: askubuntu.com/a/85459/20972 –  rogerdpack Jan 6 at 14:48
