First 980 that I bought had the "read only " error. Replaced it with another MZ-V8V500 SSD in an external Sabrent Case. Downloaded Magician to make sure the bios was up to date, after formatting it to a simple drive.
Magician sees it as a generic USB drive and wont update it. I was watching a You Tube video about Magician. The user popped an new 2TB Samsung NVMe memory card into a Mokin case and plugged it into his laptop. The Magician saw it right away and he was able to update it. Not sure what the issue is here.
My C: drive is a Samsung 850 Evo which it sees fine. I do not have any internal conectors for a NVMe M.2 stick, however.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Oh wait you asked if my computer has a type C3.1 or 3.2 interface as well.
I assume it does, as I used the original Samsung without any issues till it blew up. But I never looked at it in Magician so that's a valid question. I don't know I will investigate that.
Since your computer has a native SCSI interface inside I think you would have been better off with an a SCSI 870 Evo instead of an NVME device it's clueless about.
Or, just ignore Magician and use the 980 as a generic drive.
