I am really confused about this issue, I cannot seem to find my USB storage on my Debain computer.
Both 'df' output as well as screenshot of Disks app can be found below.
This device is a 128GB SanDisk Extreme Pro USB stick. I have tried each (front) USB port on my desktop (both 2.0 as well as 3.0). Any other USB stick works as expected.
The USB stick works just fine on my Windows laptop, since it's brand new I tried formatting it to NTFS and also to ExFAT, but it is still not showing. I also tried deleting the volume on the Windows machine, and recreating it from scratch as well as formatting it in the process, this doesn't work either. I never tried a full format, only a quick one, if not mistaken that means it doesn't mess with the database/boot structure of partition during format. The USB blue light pinks when plugged into my Windows machine, and simply turns on without pinking when plugged into my Debian machine.
Windows Disk Management output can be found below
If I were to guess, this must be a driver that's missing to operate this high speed USB, but I don't want to break my system trying to find out the solution when still being unsure about the issue itself. I am not an expert.
