I'm running Ubuntu 15.10 in my PC in dual boot mode along with Win 10. I have been trying to use my WD external HDD, but an error is preventing me from doing so. This is what pops up when I connect the HDD via USB:
Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /media/mahendranath/My Passport: Command-line `mount -t "exfat" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,namecase=0,errors=remount-ro,umask=0077" "/dev/sdb1" "/media/mahendranath/My Passport"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'
On the other hand, I'm able to connect and use the HDD quite well in Win 10. What may be the reason for this and how I fix it? Thanks :)
