i have the same problem, and still 2 month no one can fix this problem neither Sandisk help fix this

16KB Milpitas issue seems to be a common yet random issue

Here is the same error after a few months BIOS sees it as Sandisk Milpitas, it is a Sandisk SSD Plus 480GB.
SSD shows 16kb! of storage and has this strange name “Sandisc Milpitas SSD”.
No SMART available.
How to recover data?
Linux testdisk sees C/H/S only 1 cylinder!

My SSD happened the same thing! !!!

someone succeeded in recovery?

Same problem and I see there are no answers to date about this issue and or how to recover data???

same problem with wd green 480gb … 16k 0mb unusable, any solution yet ?
