My raspberry pi was working fine yesterday. Today, I could not ssh into it. I do not have an hdmi screen, so the first thing I tried was taking out the sd card and putting it in my computer. The Disks utility does not recognise the drive. fdisk -l looks more promising, but I am too scared to mount anything out of fear of making it worse.

Relevant part of fdisk -l:

The model is raspberry pi B+ running raspbian. My computer is running Linux Mint 17.2.

  • What about the 3.5mm port? Surely you have a TV with RCA connections, no? – Android Dev Apr 3 '16 at 2:14
  • Nope. In university residence. No tv here. – Marcel Apr 3 '16 at 2:15
  • If you don't have an HDMI capable monitor, may I ask how you went through the initial setup in the first place? – Android Dev Apr 3 '16 at 2:16
  • Another member of my robotics team set it up. – Marcel Apr 3 '16 at 2:17
  • Got ya. Is it possible the Pi isn't connecting to the network or has a different IP? – Android Dev Apr 3 '16 at 2:20
