I'm trying to get my usb drive to auto mount and Ive been following countless guides and threads on it but I still can't get it to work, using fstab.

I wasn't even able to boot until I added nofail, which lets me boot but doesn't mount the drive.

My fstab entry is: UUID=my-uid /media/pi/drive-name exfat-fuse uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0022,sync,auto,nofail,rw 0 0

Has anyone got any suggestions on what the issue may be?

  • Try just 'exfat' instead of 'exfat-fuse'. I'm going to assume you've installed exfat-fuse in the first place! – recantha Jan 4 '17 at 17:45

You should use 'exfat' instead of 'exfat-fuse' in the fstab entry. This should make it work with exfat-fuse. The assumption is that you've already installed exfat-fuse.
