Nano wont mount ExFAT USB external

My Nikon MicroSD is formatted ExFAT. I slipped into a vogek so I can connect it to my Nano through USB. The Nano says it will not mount an ExFAT drive so I cannot upload my Nikon pics. What do I need to do to get the Nano to mount an ExFAT external? Thanks!

I haven’t looked for the particular module, but you might need to add a kernel driver for that file system type. Once that is in place, then you may also need tools to work with that file system type. I saw a reference for the tools as:

sudo apt-get install exfat-utils exfat-fuse

(there may be a different name as it seems packages have been renamed over time, e.g., “fuse-utils” may have become just “fuse”)

You should try first with just those packages since the kernel support might already be in place. See:

Basically those tools work with exFAT, but may rely on kernel drivers as well.

That worked!
