I'm trying to connect my external hdd which is in ExFat, but it won't mount it. I've got "fuse:device not found", but if i do fdisk -l, I can see it. Can someone know how to fit it ?

Or if you have an idea to mount a hdd in exfat, i take it :).

    Have you tried this: howtogeek.com/235655/… (i.e., Did you try a search engine first, lol?). It looks like basically: sudo apt install exfat-utils exfat-fuse should do it.

You can add the UUID in /etc/fstab similar to this:

## Western Digital My Book
UUID=F577-20E3  /mnt/mybook     exfat   defaults,nofail 0       1

Separated by tabs, NOT spaces. NOFAIL option allows the operating system to continue to boot regardless of errors from the drive (missing, corrupt etc.)
