I transferred funds within my MetaMask from Account A → Account B. I’ve seen the funds (1 NFT + $SDL tokens) arrive in Account B.
The next day when i opened my MetaMask, Account B is totally gone and nowhere to be found. (0x12c951e8D4838420e01EB8a0E6eC2bDc44A83249 is the address)
I tried to think, what can i do? I should be able to enter the address somehow, right?
What i tried first was to re-enter my wallet using my secret recovery phrase (12 words). All my other accounts were there, but Account B still not there. Also after adding 40 accounts manually.
I tried searching around the internet for information, but i didn’t find any solution.
It might be that Account B was connected to my Ledger, but i’m not sure. There is no evidence within my hardware wallet that this is the case.
This is the only secret recovery phrase i created for MetaMask. So it can’t be that certain accounts belong to a different recovery phrase.
I’ve tried adding addresses manually when connecting with my hardware wallet. In every possible Preferred Ledger connection type. There’s numerous addresses listed that i can add to MetaMask. I’ve scanned the first 500 addresses but Account B is not listed between them.
I don’t have the private key to the address. Only a 12 word recovery phrase to the wallet.
The address can’t just be gone right? I should be able to enter it somehow, right?
I really hope someone can help me or can give me some leads! If you need any additionial information, just let me know. I’ve seen there are lot of people with a similar problem but not quite the same as this. I’ve contacted MetaMask support already, but i’m still awaiting response.
One thing i want to add: i was able to send funds from Account A to Account B, but i wasn’t able to get funds out of Account B. It said transaction failed. No idea why! Next day the whole account was gone.
I tried searching 0x12c951e8D4838420e01EB8a0E6eC2bDc44A83249 on Findeth to see if it was connected with my Ledger but it didn’t give any results.
I found a topic on reddit (search for Bug in MetaMask v10.0.2 when connected to the ledger, causing it to generate address not easily accessible) on Google. Maybe it has something to do with it?
If you search for Ledger Nano: MetaMask Address does not correspond to Ledger #6012 on Google you will find an interesting topic on Github as well, which seems familiar.
Extra information is that i used an outdated version of Ledger Live during the time of the problem. It was not updated for months, maybe even years. (i couldn’t)
When i manually add wallets in my MetaMask, somehow it skips Account 32 (as you can see in the image i uploaded). This might be the account/address which is missing.
What if you connect your Ledger Nano to the Live Ledger app on desktop? If you Ledger holds your address 0x12c951e8D4838420e01EB8a0E6eC2bDc44A83249 then you should be able to get access to that address using the Desktop app.
Hey JulTernes, i’m in contact with with MetaMask support now and provided them with some additional information. I hope they put their best technicians on the job. But it’s clear the problem is a deep tech issue which isn’t solved easily unfortunately.
First i didn’t know where to start with this issue, but i found some information on github that might be useful for you. Search for these topics google, since i can’t post any links:
Ledger Nano: MetaMask Address does not correspond to Ledger and can’t move funds #10875
Ledger Nano: MetaMask Address does not correspond to Ledger #6012
I saw Dan Finlay was looking into the problem as well, but i don’t know if he found any solutions.
If you can’t get your Ledger to work with the Ledger Live desktop app and MetaMask, I still think that it has something to do with your Ledger Nano device. I hope you get help from the technical support team, but I would also try to contact Ledger support.
I can’t post link from outside this forum, but try to search for " Ledger Solving a MetaMask connection issue", there might be some help there on the Ledger support forum you can use.
Thank you this seems very promising. It’s not easy for me to understand but i think i’m getting somewhere.
However, after hours of trying, i think i’m stuck now.
I tried running the scripts but i got a message like MODULE_NOT_FOUND.
At the bottom of ApacheSub github page it says:
“If you do not have networking enabled, you could install the dependencies on another machine and safely move the node_modules folder or get the files from github/ethereum/js-ethereum-cryptography. Please note you might need to manually get the dependencies for that library aswell which is otherwise done by npm.”
I don’t exactly know which files i’m missing now. Please let me know if you have an idea of where the problem might be! Thank you.
