Can't share SD card between Android and GNU/Linux


I'm having some weird problem with an SD card being rejected by Android (Replicant, Marshmallow) as "corrupted" when it is not. I typically move this card between a camera, my laptop, and Android and as it was called "corrupted" I decided to move everything off, overwrite the entire space, and re-format. The camera expects a particular UID, so I had to manually edit the FAT32 partition's identifier. What I'm finding out is that Android accepts this card when I use a new UID, but when I specify the old one, it is automatically corrupt.

Is there any way to completely reset Android's knowledge of SD cards? Something seems off here.

Are you formatting the card on the camera or the android device?

try formatting your SD card and choosing FAT instead of NTFS, FAT seems to be more friendly towards mobile devices

Hmmm.

A unique identifier (UID) is a numeric or alphanumeric string that is associated with a single entity within a given system. UIDs make it possible to address that entity, so that it can be accessed and interacted with.

Take my post with a grain of salt. These waters I am in are deeper than I am used to.
