This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


To mount exFAT, you need the exfat-fuse package:

sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

You can then use the normal mount command, e.g.:

mount -t /dev/sdd /mnt
  • Does this also make exFAT volumes mount automatically, in the circumstances where they would do so if they were FAT16/FAT32 volumes? (Most desktop Ubuntu systems are set up to automatically mount USB mass storage devices when they are connected.) – Eliah Kagan Jan 27 '17 at 11:01
