    USB mounting problems flash drives & music player  Ubuntu vs xubuntu vs mint :





    USBmounting problems flash drives & music player Ubuntu vs xubuntu vs mint :


    Fordaily use, I use Ubuntu 64-bit [my main desktop] & linux mintMATE 32-BIT [my travel laptop b/c I hate tablets]
    Iwas thinking about switching mintcinnamon or xubuntu 64-bit. Will this fix the problem ?
    Ido NOT want to fiddle with package or terminal commands but I need tobe able to move docs/music/pics files smoothly between windowsdesktop & linux desktop & android phone.






    Iam an appraiser by day
    DJby night
    Thuswindows 7 is necessary b/c MS office / APEX SKETCH / ABLETONLIVE/PUSH.

    Fordaily use, I use Ubuntu 64-bit [my main desktop] & linux mintMATE 32-BIT [my travel laptop b/c I hate tablets]
    Irip to FLAC via rhythmbox/sound juicer.
    Icarry a FIIO player everywhere with me. https://www.fiio.com/x1ii
    Butwhen I mount/copy the FLAC files to my FIIO media player, the FIIOsees but cannot read/play the music files.



    Ialso noticed that my main USB flash drive which moves back &forth between Ubuntu & Windows is always showing error messages
    Ubuntu/mintalso have problems mounting the SD card on my old galaxy phone so Ican take pics/videos of my phone.






    Ihave upgraded to windows 10.
    Inow have the 2ndgeneration X1 & this problem persists.
    Iam convinced the problem is with the USB mounting in linux.
    Doesanyone have any suggestions ? this is killing my linux experience &pushing me back to windows 10 for daily purposes.

    AmI the only one having issues with USB mounting flash drives &music player?
    Iwas thinking about switching mint cinnamon or xubuntu 64-bit. Willthis fix the problem ?

    What are the USBs formatted to? Are you properly dismounting them from Win10 before you remove them from or shut down the Win10 machine?

    the drives are inthe original format they came in.
    I have had no needto reformat them.


    The FIIO player doesits own SD card formatting when you first pop in a sd card. I assumethey aimed for compatibility with windows 10/macbook.

    Won't install any packages to provide the necessary drivers and won't answer the relevant questions asked.
    Flash devices can have different file systems when they come from the vendor. Not all of those are usually installed on any Linux system by default. So, if you'd like for the flash drive to work as is, then the file system on it needs to be known. Plus, not all flash drives are compatible with all USB ports (and USB controllers). if that's the situation, trying a different port on the system, not near the port that isn't working would be the next step.

    Not sure anyone can help. Sorry.
