I am trying to mount an SD card onto my computer, but it just shows this error:

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdb1: Command-line `mount "/mnt/usb-Generic-_Multi-Card_20071114173400000-0:0-part1"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
   missing codepage or helper program, or other error
   In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
   dmesg | tail  or so

So what do I do? i am running Ubuntu 14.04 on my ACER AspireONE computer.

Try to install the exfat support:

sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Then reinsert the card.

If it does not mount automatically, try:

sudo mount.exfat /dev/mmcblk0p1 /your/mount/point
  • Exfat? Will it format my sd card as exfat? because I need it formatted as FAT.

  • @NarRag This will not do any harm, but will not help euther. This will install exfat support.

  • I faced a similar situation today. Would it make a difference if i change the file system format of the card? Jan 16, 2017 at 14:06
