I have an HOTT MD500 MID. Previously, when I plugged this into my computer,
Thunar found two storage spaces, the first being the microSD card, the second, another storage space inside the device. Recently, I wanted to reinstall the device, so I first used
gparted to reformat both of these storage spaces to
FAT32 filesystems, then used the factory reset option on the device.
During the reformatting with
gparted, and error appeared preventing me from reformatting the internal storage. Now, when I plug the device into my computer, Thunar no longer can see the internal storage space. Also, when I go to
SD card & MID storage, “Internal Flash Storage” reports “Available Space 0”, while the “MID system storage” reports “Available Space 79 MB”.
I found some similar threads at Is internal storage formatting harmful?, which did not work for me, and Missing internal flash memory and SD card does not mount, which provides instructions specific to another model, but which I do not know how to adapt these instructions to my model of MID. Using the factory reset option in my device did not seem to help.
- Why is the internal storage no longer visible in
Thunar? How can I restore it to its original state?
- Is that normal that “Internal Flash Storage” is reported as “0”? Will this give me any problems?
