I have an SD card that is formatted as an adoptable storage.

This morning, I tried to delete photos from my phone but the operation failed and after that my SD card cannot be read by the device.

I inserted the SD card in my tablet and the tablet says the device is not supported.

I also tried accessing it from my Linux computer but running it can't be mounted. Running sudo fdisk -l displays in the following:

Disk /dev/sda: 238.5 GiB, 256060514304 bytes, 500118192 sectors

/dev/mmcblk0p2 34816 125433822 125399007 59.8G unknown

I'm assuming the details of the SD card is the last 2 entries there and their Types are unknown...

According to the answer here, there's a way to decrypt and recover the files but given that I can't even mount my device on my computer, I'm lost.

Any ideas, guys?

In my case, mounting the volume as f2fs did the job.

    Could you elaborate in this answer? Give more details of exactly what and how you repaired, recovered, or mounted the volume? – acejavelin Oct 29 '17 at 16:56
