    emmc mounting problem

    Hi there,

    My first post here...this seems like a friendly forum and I've been trawling the internet for a solution to muy problem, so hopefully you'll be able to help! My problem may well be similar to lungbender's previous thread, so feel free to merge this one or send me to his thread...however, having read through his posts I am not sure my problem is exactly the same, hence why I am here.

    Basically, I have a UK Orange (but sim unlocked and bootloader unlocked, rooted and running ICS) Atrix, but the internal memory card is borked...in recovery if I try to mount it it says "error mounting /emmc" and I can't see it anywhere, either on a PC or in Android.

    I was going to try and SBF with the original UK Orange SBF file, but that is both risky and a bit of a hassle (I would have to root all over again etc). Is there an easier way to get my internal memory working again? I have the output from:

    adb shell
    # cat /proc/partitions

    # fdisk /dev/block/mmcblk0
    p
    q

    and my output is this:

    1|shell@android:/ $ su
    su
    shell@android:/ # cat /proc/partitions
    cat /proc/partitions
    major minor #blocks name

    The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 1942720.
    There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
    and could in certain setups cause problems with:
    1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
    2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
    (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

    I'm not entirely sure what the output means, can anyone else tell? I just want to know if my emmc has a hardware issue or if it is software, and if so, how to fix it. I'd be so grateful for any help.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Do you by chance have another card you can try, just to make sure it is not the card itself that is boned?

    No, it's the internal card...the external works ok (sorry, I know the emmc can refer to the external card sometimes too but my system refers to the internal). I'm pretty sure part of it is ok as I can install new roms, I just can't install user files/music/general crap on the user available 14Gb (I think it's 14 gigs anyway).

    Btw, thanks for the super speedy reply!

    Oh yeah, I forget about that sometimes. Damn Motorola having to be awesome...but different.

    Were you doing anything with the phone when the card crapped out? Or did you do something like reboot your phone and all of the sudden emmc doesn't want to load?

    The very last post on lungbender's thread there are some things you can try.

    First go into Mounts and Storage, and try to manually mount the sd-ext, sdcard and maybe try the emmc, though the emmc and sd-ext are the same and only one will be used. Do any of them mount? (should change the option to "unmount" if successful)

    If not, then try the options to format the sdcard and sd-ext or emmc (!!Note, please make sure you've backed up your SD card contents outside of your phone before doing this!!)
    If there is no way for your to backup your data, then it can't be done. Try manually mounting the storage in Recovery. I am assuming you are using some variation of CWM or TWR.

    Yep, tried all that, yes I am using CWM touch recovery. Trying to mount the internal SD in recovery simply brings up the warning "Error mounting! /emmc". Likewise in Android, I can browse the external sd with ES file browser but can't get to internal at all

    Hopefully someone else has some insight. I am making Google work to get me some answers, but sometimes, I just don't know what the correct question to ask is. If I find a solution before someone else does, I will put it up here!

    Thanks a lot mate, I've been searching for weeks myself but I'm sure you'll have a better idea than me. Of course, I could always try SBFing, but I just don't want to take the risk.

    Also, just read the other part of your post that asked what I was doing...if it helps, the reason my phone crapped out was because I had the reboots and sleep of death issue, and after trying everything, though I would repartition everything to ext4 from recovery...which wrecked it. I have only in the last few days managed to adb push a PDS fix to it which has allowed me reinstall roms and boot...but I suspect somehow my user partition of the internal SD is still in the wrong format (in fact, Root Explorer did give me a message to that effect, saying "emmc not in correct format". Unfortunately, I can't mount it anywhere to reformat. Grr, damned Moto indeed!

    If it's a format problem on your internal storage, then try this:

    Boot into fastboot and connect it to your pc. Use the command:

    fastboot erase sdcard

    fastboot reboot

    Then, once the phone is fully booted, connect it to your pc and see if you can reformat the Internal Storage to fat.

    I learn something new every day. Hopefully that will work! It seems like that would be too easy after all of the reading I have done.

    Ain't that the truth! Lol!

    I hope it works, but it just seems too easy.
