I bought an Extreme Pro SSD 480g 2 weeks ago, pluggeg it, migrated my system(win8.1) and games to it and it worked without problem and with excellent performances for several days.
Then yesterday, after booting my pc, using it for a few minutes and leaving it idle for an hour or so, i found it stuck on a BSOD.
Powered it off
And now the drive is no longer detected in the bios (MSi Z87-G45-GAMING)
All my other hard/optical drives are working.
I’ve tried to :
* unplug, and replug it.
* plug it with different data / alim cables on different sata ports
* reset bios options, wait an hour with it plugged to power only, several cold reboots…
* even put it in another computer (different motherboard)
I’ve contacted (french) support about it ([Incident:140722-000473]) but thought i could also post here in case anyone had an idea, or seen this happening.
This model is quite new, so it might be an undetected firmware problem.
While it was working , i tried to check for updates with the Dashboard, but no newer version was found (around 12th of July)
Also i wouldn’t know how to update it as no software is seeing it connected (bios/windows install dvd/gparted)
Or it’s just bad luck and i received a defective device…
