Sandisk Clip Sport Plus only mounts on startup

I think this is a long shot as normal USB drives mount/unmount automatically successfully.

I purchased a Sandisk Clip Sport Plus and it demonstrates odd behavior - specifically it only mounts when connected on boot but not when unplugged and inserted after boot (or reinserted).

I am running XFCE with udisks2 installed. Any pointers welcome on things that could have gone wrong (maybe it is a device issue though)?

Re: Sandisk Clip Sport Plus only mounts on startup

Just to add:

If I have the Sandisk connected on boot, running an 'lsblk' shows the device at /dev/sda with partition at /dev/sda1. I can mount / unmount manually as well.

If I unplug and then run an 'lsblk', it does not reappear at /dev/sda.

This seems more a device / kernel issue so not sure if somebody can move the post to hardware board.

Re: Sandisk Clip Sport Plus only mounts on startup

Did you find any solution for this. I stumbled about this, too. with a new Sandsik Clip Sport Plus 32 GB.

As far as I know, the player only supports MSC (mass storage). On plugging in the following is seen in the dmesg:

[ 7097.612144] usb 1-2: new high-speed USB device number 21 using xhci_hcd

There is missing the line for the mounted partition sdvb1.

With lsblk it looks like this:

> lsblk /dev/sdb
sdb    8:16   1 29,7G  0 disk 

fdisk shows the following:

Festplatte /dev/sdb: 29,72 GiB, 31914983424 Bytes, 62333952 Sektoren

/dev/sdb2         2048   452607   450560  220M  b W95 FAT32

Partitionstabelleneinträge sind nicht in Festplatten-Reihenfolge.

After printing the partition table with fdisk or cfdisk, the partition is shown. This is reproducable. Now the player is shown e.g. in thunar.


My current kernel is 5.15.32.

This seems to be not only Arch related. It happens with Manjaro and Ubuntu, too.
