FAT failed to mount error 14

Postby msperandio » Fri May 31, 2019 8:31 am

I'm trying to mount the FAT FS on a custom c++ project with custom partition table. The error is always:

W (28) vfs_fat_spiflash: f_mount failed (13)
I (28) vfs_fat_spiflash: Formatting FATFS partition, allocation unit size=4096
E (38) vfs_fat_spiflash: f_mkfs failed (14)
E (48) Read CSV example: Failed to mount FATFS (ESP_FAIL)

The wear_levelling example runs fine on my system.

Do you have any idea, I'm using exactly the same lines of code on the example?

Hello there,
I have esp-wroom-32d module and I'm using esp-idf v4.0-dev-837-g58df1d93b and I'm using make build system for my programs compilation. I've been using the same library in order to write some data in Flash memory without any problems. Today I've erased the flash and changed a bit my partition table. It seems that i get the same error messages as you, esp doesn't like my changes :D !! My fat partition size is 0xD000 = 52KB and it's type is data.

I'm posting the log below for further info:

I'm searching for a solution since this morning but nothing as far :|. If I'll get it working I'll let you know.

Can you please show me ur partition table and file system initialisation?

k.ifantidis: try increasing the partition size to the same size as used in the example. One of the possible causes of this error is that FATFS library can not find a suitable C:H:S geometry for the given size, which can happen if the partition is too small.

If you find that you need a filesystem partition smaller than about 150kB, then SPIFFS might be a better option. That is, unless you need to protect the contents using Flash Encryption feature, as SPIFFS is not compatible with flash encryption.

Hello there!

Thank you all about your replies and I'm sorry for the late response. I've detected the problem and it was that I had set insufficient storage size for FAT. I have read somewhere that minimum sector size for FAT is 128 - 132 sectors so minimum size is calculated like this 132*512B or 132*4096B. When I updated my partition table and set the right FAT size everything worked again.
If someone can point me to the documentation about the FAT size and minimum sectors needed for it I would be grateful :)

CASE SOLVED !!
