# after update to Eineheminlampi, again the sdcard is not mounted

asked 2015-09-26 13:05:46 +0200

I have used earlier messages, e.g. https://together.jolla.com/question/40802/how-to-format-your-usd-card-to-btrfs-and-share-space-with-android/ to get a 64GB card working, and this even survived the update to Björnträsket very well. After today's update, however, it's gone.

I have these file systems

so the card seems to be there and recognised, but nothing mounts it.

OK, I can re-read all the old messages and try to rebuild all this, but does someone have a quicker idea? I still do not understand why this needs to be such a terribly complex problem with nearly every update. Seems like it is not WANTED that we have disk space in this phone.

I guess this COULD be closed again, given that messing around a little with the old recommendations I was able to find my sdcard back. But WHY does it have to be this level of tinkering? What speaks again having the card simply be integrated into the file system and be made available to the user by default?

Hm I just put my 64gb SD-Card it, the only thins I had to do was to format it in I think FAT32 with a special tool :D since then all music and pictures is recognized, survived all updates...

@drummer12 FAT32 is old and has too many limitations on modern storages. The way to go would be exFAT (for Windows compatibility, that is also what was on the card before you formatted it. But currently buggy with 1.1.9.28 - You have to add "-t exfat" to the mount command which the auto mounter script on SailfishOS does not [EDIT] A Workaround for this is available here: https://openrepos.net/content/v10lator/bleeding-edge-sd-utils [/EDIT]) or F2FS (best filesystem for flash storage, not readable on Windows).

Both of these FSes aren't supported on SailfishOS by default but I took the time to compile them:

https://openrepos.net/content/v10lator/exfat-nofuse

https://openrepos.net/content/v10lator/f2fs

Anyway, this is off-topic.
