Mount FAT32 volume under Ubuntu

to mount a FAT32 volume:

  1. Know your harddisk name in Linux:
    sudo fdisk -l
    e.g. you will know your new harddisk is called /dev/sdd1
  2. Assume we want to mount it under /var/myhd
    sudo mkdir /var/myhd
  3. Next, mount it.  The umask=0000 option allows read write for all users.
    sudo mount -t vfat -o umask=0000 /dev/sdd1 /var/myhd
    sudo mount -t vfat -o iocharset=utf8,umask=000 /dev/hda1 /media/d
  4. It should works now!
  5. To unmount the disk, use:
    umount /var/myhd
