Even odder is that the pi has just done the same thing to a brand new USB stick.LTolledo wrote: ↑Sat Jul 28, 2018 11:57 pmThat's odd....GAP wrote: I have a USB stick but the pi will not mount it pi is looking for EXT4 format and the stick is in NTFS.
I have tried FAT32 as well.
When I look at the disk it has a "boot" partition (SanDisk Cruzer Switch) as it is the only one I have at present I cannot use copier to put it on it.
This is the error I am getting.
"Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdb2: Command-line `mount "/"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error"
Funny thing was that it worked yesterday with files on it but this morning with it empty it won't, I put a file on it and still won't work.
Would it be OK for me to remove the boot partition on it or just get another one?.
This is what I just did right now (am using the HDDPi system I installed yesterday)
1. Popped a 16GB USB stick in win10 pc
2. Deleted all partitions on the USB stick. So now I have an unformatted USB stick
3. Plugged the unformatted 16GB USB stick to an already running RPi3B+ (HDDPi)
4. Selected SD Card Copier in the menu items (Accessories -- SD Card Copier)
5. In the SD Card Copier window Copy From Device [HDD], Copy to Device [USB Stick]
6. Did not check the [ ] New Partition UUID
7. Click on [Start] button
Even though the USB stick is unformatted, the SD card copier proceeded with the cloning process.
Inserting a FAT32 or NTFS formatted USB disk will work the same. Stretch will just pop up a window "Removable medium is inserted"
SD Card Copier will format the device to accommodate the cloned system.
Then I shut down RPi3B+, removed USB power and USB cable for USB HDD. (Now I only have the USB stick and the keyboard/mouse dongle connected to the USB ports)
Powered up the RPi3B+ and let it boot... and it booted successfully on the cloned USB stick
Could it be that you did not remove the original system from which the system was cloned from?
Well I actually tried this, the original HDD and the cloned USB stick both plugged to the USB port. RPi3B+ booted from USB stick.
I formatted it to FAT32 on the XP machine and I got an "operation cancelled" message when I plugged it back into the Pi and now it will not automount, it did prior to me trying to copy the SD card.
The copy is stopping halfway and goes nowhere, when I cancel it the USB stick becomes unusable on the Pi. I have no idea what is going on.
