I have an older pc that I’d like to upgrade with an SSD. I had previously tried a Samsung but their software is not able to work with devices detected as SCSI in windows. I’d say it’s just a flaw in their software. Anyway so now I’m looking at other companies to see if there is a company that will allow this very common issue to work with their software and SSD.
The “problem” is I have a pc where the HDD and if I use an SSD will be detected as SCSI by windows even though they are Sata drives. Now for some reason software by Samsung won’t work with this normal windows os condition. I’ve also asked support for SanDisk but I had to explain things 3 times and then they told me they are “aware of the issue and working to fix it”. So I’m not sure if that was just some scripted BS to get me to end the chat or they actually understood.
You see, apparently this normal and just happens with some chipsets. There is nothing specifically wrong and nothing to “fix”. It’s been happening for years, but apparently Samsung and possibly Sandisk just didn’t take it into consideration when writing their software for their SSDs. Guess I could go without the software and just use the drive, but it’s just something that’s nice to have and have work normally with a normally functioning drive.
This link from Western Digital will explain the “issue” I’m talking about,
So any of you using the SSD software for the WD Blue SSDs, could you check in device manager and tell me if the SSD shows as a SCSI device, and if so then does the SSD software detect the drive normally with no problems?.
