X260 and Samsung 860 Evo Incompatibility

#1 Post by linktoinsanity » Thu Jul 26, 2018 5:10 am

Hi there,

I have tried fitting a new Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SSD to my Lenovo X260, however it does not seem to be able to read from or write to the new SSD, although the same SSD works fine in external caddies, my PC and an X250 that I have tested. The weird thing is that the X260 does see the new SSD in the BIOS, just cannot read or write to it.bI have tried both updating and resetting then BIOS to no avail and this is the first of many SSDs I have fitted has had this issue.

Any ideas anyone? Has stumped me, I will have to send the SSD back otherwise. Thanks for any advice.

Welcome to the Forum.

I assume that the SSD was initialized while in the X250.
Did you also format it in the X250?
Are you working with Linux, W7 or W10?
Is your Samsung Magician software up-to-date?
