Install and Use exfat USB under Ubuntu

Ubuntu exFAT

exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table) is a Microsoft file system optimized for flash drives. exFAT can be used where the NTFS file system is not a feasible solution (due to data structure overhead), or where the file size limit of the standard FAT32 file system is unacceptable.

exFAT has been adopted by the SD Card Association as the default file system for SDXC cards larger than 32 GB.

Native Linux support for exFAT is still limited. As of 2010, a working implementation under FUSE exists, which reached version 1.0 in 2013. So we need to install exfat-fuse and related packges in Ubuntu for using exFAT.

Install exfat package under Ubuntu

Update all repositories.
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update

Installing the below 2 packages.
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Use exFAT USB under Ubuntu

If Ubuntu doesn't auto-mount your exFAT formatted driver, you could mount exfat USB manually after installed the above 2 packages.
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /media/xxx
jose@jose-ubuntu:~$ sudo mount -t exfat /dev/sdxx /media/xxx

/media/xxx - means specific folder for exfat partition.
/dev/sdxx - means your exfat partition.
