I tried the following situation and I'm getting a bunch of errors:
I'M ALSO using ubuntu version 11.10. Everytime I try to upgrade to a new version my old computer no longer works. So I want to make this work first on my version to back all my files up.
Do I need a higher version?
Someone posted this solution:
Ubuntu 14.04 or higher
Since Ubuntu 13.10, this package is in the main repository. Just install exfat-fuse and exfat-utils:
sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils[Ubuntu 12.04]
For ubuntu 13.04 and lower, you'll need a ppa to install the exfat support. Installation procedure:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat
If you see the error gpg: "tag:launchpad.net:2008:redacted" not a key ID: skipping during the apt-add-repository step, then you'll need to manually install the signing key and run the apt-get update and apt-get install steps after that:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 4DF9B28CA252A784
