When i go into the disk utility to try and mount the sd card manually it gives me this error:


Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is already mounted on /
mount failed


i'd like to figure out where this is claiming to be mounted as i searched the file system like crazy trying to find out where this thing is mounted. any help is much appreciated as i dont want to have to switch back to windows just to use this awesome little camera.

Also i am using maverick meerkat (10.10)

Welcome to the forum.

I think you accidentally clicked in the wrong place in Disk Utility:


Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is already mounted on /
mount failed

That's telling you that /dev/sda1 (that's the first partition in your hard drive) is your root Ubuntu partition. You can't remount it for obvious reasons. Your SD card wil be /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sdc1 depending on how many internal hard disks you have.

If the card has been automounted then you will be able to find it in the folder it has mounted to in /media. But you shouldn't need to. An automounted SD card should cause a window to popup asking what you want to open the card with, or a file browser window will open depending on what your settings are.

A few questions: Are you plugging the camera in directly to a USB port and, if so, what make/model camera. If you are trying to mount the SD card with a SD card reader, is the card a standard SD or one of the higher-capacity SDHC cards? There is a problem with some (but only some) card readers with SDHC cards in Linux.

Last question: have you ever installed an application from the repository to "help" with usb automounting? They are not necessary; they all seem to cause problems; the commonest and worst offender, at least on GUI systems, seems to be usbmount which is not meant to be used with a GUI. If you have installed any of these 3rd party apps, I suggest you uninstall them.

i have not used any of the mounting softwares as i did not see a point to it. and i know that this is forsure the output of the sd card and not another partition on the hard drive.
as for the camera i do not use it to try and mount as it does not show up either. but it is a GoPro Hd Hero 960.
and the sd card is a PNY Premium 16 GB/ 4hr hd video card, class 4

A 16GB card would be SDHC, so you might be tripping over the issue that I mentioned where some card readers won't read SDHC cards in Linux.

Plug the card in, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories) and post the output of these two commands:


dmesg | tail
sudo fdisk -lu

You will be prompted for your password with the second command. It won't be echoed to the screen - nothing will appear to be happening as you type - but don't worry, the password is going in. You can copy and paste the output by highlight-dragging the output text with the mouse, right-click > Copy, which will copy it to the clipboard, and then use the usual keyboard shortcut, ctrl-V, to paste it to the message field for your post.

Wherever that smiley face shows up started out as the number eight or colon eight. I've had it happen to me and I had to edit the post and actually type out "eight."

8)

Edit: It's eight followed by right parenthesis.

I've only used 4GB sandisk cards in my GoPro and I've never had problems reading them. It could be your reader is not happy reading 16GB cards. Try plugging in the camera with USB and see if you can see the files. Try another reader in another computer.

@KTM2Good, I asked you to post the output of:

dmesg | tail
sudo fdisk -luBut you posted the output of:


dmsegAnd you didn't post the output of 'sudo fdisk -lu'

I suspect you may have used another character for '|'. The '|' (pipe) symbol is usually on the key next to the left shift key, the backslash key shifted.

I can see some what is needed from your posted output but we need to be sure you had the card plugged in first. Plug the card in and then a few seconds later:


dmesg | tail
sudo fdisk -luIt's important to get these outputs to see whether your system is even seeing the card let alone mount it. I suspect that the problem is that it will be a SDHC card, but let's see that output.

oh crap see i didnt know if that was a just to make me type a new message or what. and the sudo fdisk -1u didnt go through but i suspect that is because i typed the first command wrong.

is that better. i am sorry i have been using ubuntu for a while but i only have used terminal to fetch updates and some programs. i do believe that i did the fdisk -lu wrong as i mistook the l for a 1. here are the real results of that.

The system is seeing the card as sdb and the single FAT partition on it as sdb1. Is it not appearing anywhere when you plug it in - not in the Places menu?

If it isn't, try this from a terminal with the card in:


udisks --umount /dev/sdb1

ok these are the results of the umount command and then i tried a few others as you can see.

and to answer your question it does not show up in places nor when i check the media folder that it says it is mounted to. is there maybe something i have to download for it to allow the format of the stuff on the card?

i also forgot to mention that the built in reader on my laptop worked just fine and read the 16 gb card before i put it in the go pro camera. afterwards i try and put it in the reader and it dont work right. and gives me the problem mentioned

I seem to recall that GoPro had a list of "certified" SD cards to be used in their cameras. Others might work, but the "certified" ones were the ones to use for critical shots. SanDisk, Kingston and a few others. I'm not sure if PNY made the cut. So it's possible that the files are recoverable:

Open a terminal: (cut and paste each command, one at a time, highlight with the mouse then use the middle click button on the mouse)

sudo apt-get install testdisk
man testdisk
man photorec

Read those manual pages thoroughly (spacebar to move forward, q to quit man pages) to understand what each tool does before mangling your SD card further. If you don't care about the shots, then try reformatting the card within the camera and shoot a few test videos.

Can you see the files when you plug the camera in with a USB cable then plug that cable into your computer?

@KTM2Good, my apologies, I made a silly typing error with that udisks command. The option should have been --mount, not --umount. Try:


udisks --mount /dev/sdb1
i also forgot to mention that the built in reader on my laptop worked just fine and read the 16 gb card before i put it in the go pro camera. afterwards i try and put it in the reader and it dont work right. and gives me the problem mentioned

The 16GB card worked just fine at first but after you used it in the camera, it fails to work. Interesting. Did you reformat the card in the camera? There's one unusual thing about your fdisk output:



Disk /dev/sdb: 16.6 GB, 16574840832 bytes
28 heads, 60 sectors/track, 19269 cylinders, total 32372736 sectors

Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 8192 32372735 16182272 b W95 FAT32

A start sector of 8192 is not impossible, but I don't see the purpose of it. I wonder if the camera is formatting the card in an unusual way.

If you did reformat the card in the camera, try this experiment. Check the udisks command first. Now backup any photos you may have on the card - I guess you'll have to use Windows for this bit. Now, in Ubuntu, use Disk Utility to reformat it to FAT. If it doesn't automount once Disk Utility has finished, unplug it and plug it back in again to get it to automount (hopefully). Can you copy files to it? Post the output of 'sudo fdisk -lu' again to see what the start sector is now. If the card works OK when formatted with Disk Utility, put it in the camera and use the camera to reformat it. What happens now when you plug it into Ubuntu?

coffeecat i have done that before with it. that is the only way that the card actually mounts. and if you look i tried mounting cuz i thought that you might have made a typo. i also tried to unmount it.

the card worked just fine in my dads gopro as he used it until he bought a 32gb.

so next i should run the commands trying to use the camera as a card reader?
