Category: Mounting Issues



Update: This Method Actually Formats the whole capacity and Will require you to restore your IPOD to factory settings. This is for erasing the Games and some stupid content in IPOD, and freeing up Space for mush desired Music and Videos or required

Hey Guys! Now it’s time to wordpress a situation about Ipod Nano being unrecognized in iTunes or/and Windows Explorer, where nothing ahead we can proceed to make use of IPod. For this process to be able to succeed, we need to see the Device partially recognised, means device is Visible in greyed out or hidden like Volume mounted in Windows Explorer, but when tried to access the disk, it says, Please insert a disk, something like that message. this is to format the Whole iPOD and bring out new fresh IPOD. But if you wish to make use of data in the iPOD, just uninstall the drivers for IPOD in Device Manager and Re-install or scan for new hardware changes being installed itunes and connected to internet for better drivers install.

So, how exactly to solve this problem; here it follows. Once you are confident that the volume is recognised, but cannot access the disk either itunes way or volume way in Windows, you have to go to Command Prompt in Windows by pressing Windows+R key together to start a run dialog box and press CMD in there. or type cmd in Start search box and hit enter. Once you are there at the elevated command prompt type the following commands to check whether your iPOD is recognised as a volume disk or not “cd: F:” Pleas note that, here F is the Disk that Ipod has been granted to mount on Windows. It varies as per your system. To make sure what is your Disk name, check the Windows before connecting IpOD and later , to see the newly mounted Disk. Once confirmed that its the only Disk of IPOD, proceed with the given Disk LEtter

if it says the volume is there but not recognised or corrupted, then with the confident that F or the Given Disk letter, Proceed to format the volume disk with the following commands

“format F:”

Once the command is successfully passed onto IPOD Disk, the Formatting option will start formatting the drive with the New EXFAT file system, that will format the drive and will help you recover the iPOD disk back to working in itunes and Windows being recognised.

Hope this help some frustrated Patrons.

Thank you. any further info or queries, happy to help through comments made here.

Update: USB OTG Helper application will solve NTFS formatted USB Drives to be mounted on phone. THis is available in XDA forums only as of yet!

 

This is to notify the solution for How to fix the external SD cards mounting issues on windows 7 in Jelly bean or related Android OS.

Jelly Bean Home Screen

If you have came from ICS or GB flavors, the probability is that you have used your file exploreres within your Device to see the Exernal SD card (Micro SD here) and Internal sd card (USB Storage) in an easy ways, representing external Sd card folder and usb storage folders in their respective denomination; an easy navigation, not much confusion isn’t it?.

But ever since JB arrived, the storage devices location are little changed; perhaps accurate this time if get used to; are mounted in “/storage” path as /sdcard0 representing internal USB storage space and /sdcard1 representing microsd card
Another path /USBdisk is for the OTG (On the GO USB cable attached flash drives can be seen there in this path folder.) natively supports FAT/FAT32 formatted USB Flash drives, if NTFS support is needed, try you luck with NTFS Mounter. So, since this path has been changed, some already existing Softlinks (shortcuts in windows context) target to that sdcards.

I can put down a lot of words here, but the solution is important however; for most people, so confining with thus stated information. Since the above mentioned words help for some people who are looking for sdcard locations within their Phone; who confused seeing the external sd card folder empty :-0.
So how to fix mounting issues in windows 8, 7 or Vista is, here: just install Multi Mount SD card from Market or from your known sources and that’s it. You will see the sd cards mounted on your PC and at the same time you can access SD cards on your Phone as well. Try not use the Other methods, when using Multi Mount SD method. use Widget on your screen to activate and deactivate application aka Mounting and Unmounting Disk drives.

Hope this helps some irated patrons.
