Accessing exFAT drives on Linux
Wikipedia notes that "exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table) is a Microsoft file system optimized for flash drives. It is proprietary and patented".
exFAT is supported on modern Windows and OS X but Linux users may need to add additional software. The following steps work for Ubuntu (and variant) users. In Terminal, enter:
sudo apt-get install exfat-utils exfat-fuse
Then reboot the system.
