It’s been a while since I’ve come across a file system that wasn’t supported by default on Ubuntu Linux. Even NTFS partitions Just Work nowadays. So imagine my surprise when I plugged in a 64GB USB key (my first; I’ve only used 16GB up till now) and Ubuntu gave me this error.
|Oh noes... exFAT don't work out of the box|
Thankfully, the open source community already has a ready solution. Finding a fix was a simple Google search away. How-To Geek has a nice simple post on this. I’ll just include the command I’m interested in, here.
~$ sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
After installation is complete, devices using exFAT should work automagically.
