I have several issues with my recent purchase of a SN 770. I want to use it as an external SSD, so I bought a Ugreen enclosure and placed it inside. However, two problems arise and if they are not resolved, I will return it:
- On Windows, I initialized the SSD via Disk Manager, I wanted to check the status of the SSD but it is not detected by either Dashboard or WD Drive Utilities, although it appears in WD Discovery. So I cannot update it.
- On Android, I connect it to an S23 and when I copy several hundred files (such as photos) via various utilities, it crashes after about a hundred files and tells me that the device is switching to read-only mode to prevent data loss. I then have to restart the phone and reconnect the SSD to a computer to “repair” it.
Is this because I am using an internal SSD as an external one, or are these common issues (I haven’t found anything on the internet that suggests this)?
Have a good day.
