Thank you for the reply. I too formatted using both using NTFS and FAT32 with no luck. You could be right about the SD cards having their own default file system but I assume a lot of people use SD cards with Linux after formatting them. I could be wrong too.

MickaelK responded with: mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0 /mnt/sdcard He also said, "Make sure that /mnt/sdcard or whatever directory you create exists.


I wanted to try this but I am so new to Linux that I am not sure if this directory can simply be made using the terminal without a target path location. I didn't want to bother him with such a trivial detail. If someone would want to show me what to type in the terminal to make this directory and where to put it (if necessary) that would be great.

I'm not aware of a default file system. They typically are already formatted with < 32 GB cards as FAT32 and larger as exFAT.

mkdir /mnt/sdcard

Sometimes you can use auto for the file system type and mount will figure it out.

Good news! I tried a different SD 64 GB card made by Kingston and it worked perfectly in MX Linux. I checked the format and it is FAT32. The other 64 GB card made by SanDisk did not work with MX Linux. I will contact them for an explanation and possibly a solution.

If this happens to someone else I hope this helps.

By the way, thanks Michael. I added sudo to mkdir. I was getting a permission warning. If all else fails, try Google instead of driving the moderator crazy
