I upgraded my OS from 12.10 to 13.04 and i am not able to mount my memory card.

Snap shot of the error.

enter image description here

I used to see EOS_DIGITal which is the name of memory card before clicking OK

After i click OK i cannot see the same any more. Snap shot attached. below

enter image description here

I edited /etc/modules and added this tifm_sd to the end of file. After rebooting i could see EOS_DIGITAL. I tried to open and a pop up with error displayed as in first snapshot.

I do not know how to overcome the error and access my memory card inserted to my laptop. Edit:

  • It says 'can't read superblock'. Maybe filesystem on your memory card is corrupted? To give us more info, please run sudo fdisk -l with your memory card inserted and paste output to your question. This command outputs info about all disks connected to your PC and their partitions. – user31389 Apr 29 '13 at 14:10
  • @user31389 added the output of the command asked. The memory card is 2gb. – Raghunandan Apr 29 '13 at 15:34
  • can you format this device under linux? – Hojat Taheri Apr 29 '13 at 15:35
  • i can't even mount. so how can i format the same. I can't see it under media/raghu. If i mount other partitions i can see the same under media/raghu. The card is not corrupted i am able to use the same in my camera (cannon 600D) – Raghunandan Apr 29 '13 at 15:37
  • It looks like your memory card isn't detected as a valid device or something. Maybe it's broken? Does it work on other computers? Or in Windows? If it doesn't work anywhere, it's broken. If it works somewhere else... I have no idea what to do. – user31389 May 12 '13 at 19:25
