Hi I expect there has been quite a few posts about this already but I thought I would try my luck to see if I can get any assistance.
I purchased the above little SSD to replace the CF->ZIF adapter in my HP2510p notebook, it hasn’t worked in that machine at all (I know the recommended advice for someone else was to contact dell - which is no help for me firstly because I dont have a dell + the fellow didn’t come back and say what dell recommended)
I am just looking for a bit of advice regarding these drives, I have put it in a USB zif enclosure and windows can see a drive but states “no media”, and the post answer referenced above stated it is an OEM product so not sandisks responsibility - does this mean that usually a manufacturer will buy these and fit them to their missles, fake ipods etc and somehow initialise them? this is the second one of these “bare ssds” I have tried and I sent the first one back as it basically had the same issues.
If I was to buy a “non bare ssd” would this work straight out of the box, or can I get a tool to format it or something?
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
The hp2510p only has an ATA 100Mbs bus which is why I dont mind having one of these slow ssds.
