What File system format?

Postby xendistar » 2015-03-09 16:54

I have a compact flash card that has a linux based OS installed on it (embedded thin client). If I connect the compact flash card to my Debian box (via USB card reader), nothing gets mounted, if I open gparted it can see the compact flash but does not recognise the partition format. If I connect it to my windows PC it just ask if I want to format it. Is there any way of finding out what the format is as I want to look at some of the software on the compact flash.

On your Debian box can you post the output of:

Code: Select all
 lsblk

mit@lunar1 ~ $ lsblk

sda 8:0 0 465.8G 0 disk

├─sda3 8:3 0 5.6G 0 part [SWAP]
├─sda4 8:4 0 185.8G 0 part

└─sdd1 8:49 1 973.5M 0 part

I assume that the compact flash is the sdd as it is a 1gb card

If it is /dev/sdd use:
Code: Select all
# parted -l /dev/sdd

Or use the command without the "/dev/sdd" bit to list all the filesystems and partitions attached to your system.

Post the output of:
Code: Select all
# blkid

Please use code tags for the terminal output -- quote this post to see how I have done it for the command above.

It does not return anything, running the command just return to a new line and no code output.

After some goolging I found some info about fsck and tried the following

Code: Select all
mit@lunar1 ~ $ sudo fsck -N /dev/sdd1
fsck from util-linux 2.25.2
[/sbin/fsck.ext2 (1) -- /dev/sdd1] fsck.ext2 /dev/sdd1


Does that mean the file system is ext2?? If so why is it failing to be read?

Looks to me like there is no filesystem on that device.

Well there was on Thursday when I powered the terminal up, I decided to scrap it as it has dodgy USB ports and it is over 5 year old.

Thanks for your help, if I can find out what is on there I will post back here.
