Mounting in OS X?
« on: April 21, 2011, 10:07:43 am »
Has anybody had success with mounting their Gemei in OS X? My Mac doesn't even recognise it at all in disk utility or through terminal. I also can't see it in VMware. I dop have access to a Windows PC but it's a bit of a pain. Any ideas?

Well, you could put stuff onto an SD card,  but you won't be able to update firmware or the emulators that way.
I don't think anyone has made it work on a Mac, yet.

Nobody you know has a computer running windows? You don't need it hooked up very much, so you could just use someone elses PC to  transfer all your files.

Not sure about Mac, but this works in Linux.

Quote
The reason that Ubuntu and some other Linux systems do not automatically mount the dingoo is because the default partition layout/file system on the Dingoo is whacked. See log from dmesg:

 

[11165.342526] FAT: Invalid FSINFO signature: 0xcefaadde, 0xcefaadde (sector = 1)
 
 This will show up after you plugin the drive and mount it. This is how you mount it.

1) Plug device into computer

2) Wait 20 seconds or so and open up a terminal, and type "dmesg". You will see something like:

 

[ 3567.493068] usb 1-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
[ 3567.626550] usb 1-8: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[ 3567.642143] scsi5 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
[ 3567.642347] usb-storage: device found at 5
[ 3567.642352] usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
[ 3572.653145] usb-storage: device scan complete
[ 3572.653931] scsi 5:0:0:0: Direct-Access     China    Chip PMP USBDISK V100 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 CCS
[ 3572.654592] scsi 5:0:0:1: Direct-Access     China    Chip PMP USBDISK V100 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 CCS
[ 3572.655788] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdf] 8086528 512-byte hardware sectors: (4.14 GB/3.85 GiB)
[ 3572.656276] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdf] Write Protect is off
[ 3572.656281] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdf] Mode Sense: 00 06 00 00
[ 3572.656286] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdf] Assuming drive cache: write through
[ 3572.659985] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdf] 8086528 512-byte hardware sectors: (4.14 GB/3.85 GiB)
 
Notice the device name (sdf). Make a mount point in terminal "sudo mkdir /mnt/dingoo", and then mount the device "sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdf /mnt/dingoo"

You can now access your Dingoo in Linux.
