Antwort auf „"Unable to write to the last block of the device"”The SSD's firmware is likely corrupt or the SATA controller in the laptop or the drive is failing. The SATA cable has nothing to do with it. All SATA devices are backwards compatible with SATA III, III, and I, as per the SATA spec. The drive will just downspeed to the correct protocol.
Antwort auf „Problems with Samsung 850 EVO SSD”Dan is incorrect, as the laptop's chipset is only SATA II, the drive uses its backwards compatibility to use the SATA II protocol. SATA III is never used by the cable, chipset or drive. It IS possible that the cable has failed, but it has nothing to do with SATA III or the cable not being up to SATA III spec.
