Yeah. Bought mine from amazon and I’m getting frustrated as heck. Can’t optimize or anything, can’t even find downloadable firmware versions for the 1tb 860 evo. If anyone knows a fix please say so
So mine is attached to a SATA III controller on an Asus P8P67 Deluxe mobo. HDTune reads SMART, no problem. Magician doesn't. So it doesn't sound like a SATA driver problem, but rather a Samsung software problem with Magician.
Hi Asteroid, I had a similar problem to you and tried all the suggestions on this site to no avail. My BIOS also has the drive seen as in AHCI mode. I diagnosed that the problem MAY have started after I set my original Magician v5.5(which was working) to Rapid mode, I also used 'Overprovisioning' to set aside 10% of my drive. I also started getting a BSOD 'Kmode not handled' loop that stopped my PC starting. When PC actually did start the Magician gave an error message, Drive not found,(which could explain the 'Kmode not handled' BSOD, since bootup was looking for a driver that it couldnt find, and I couldn't diagnose which driver that was ) but then would open Magician with the 'not supported' leaders you suggested. After using the other methods in this post and reinstalling etc it still didn't work. Finally I booted into safe mode, uninstalled Magician, clicked into 'Drive Management' via Device Manager and re-extended the drive to recover the overprovisioning partition then reinstalled Magician v6, rebooted, and wahey! problem(s) solved. Hope this helps someone.

If you guys are using Windows 10, may have application protection enabled. It's really good protection but it will stop lots of applications from accessing hardware...easy to resolve...

I had issues as well. I ended up not going to worry about warranty. I used a USB external device (usb3 on a computer with only USB2) . I used a free clone software, to save the Latitude 6420 8gig ram, 1Tb HD to the USB external case with the SSD. the Free clone software required $50 bucks for the advance features for SSD cloning, and such. my system is running really well. (on day 2) incidentally I was going to uninstall Magician, and found out it was working. It had updated my SSD Firmware, and was looking as expected this morning. Magician will stay. I am running the latest Win10 with all the updates, and run Intel/Dell supports to ensure those drivers are up to date previous to this week. other OS conditions, Windows swap file is set to zero.
Not sure what worked, I know AHCI is still off, and surprising that this system is Sata3. I am really happy with my system today.
