OK, just tested enclosure with a 320GB Hitachi 7200RPM HD. Worked fine.
So then put then SSD back in, plugged it in... it worked! Don't know why doing that helped?
Still need to sort out the firmware and update... will use a PC at work to do it
Hi, I have just bought a Samsung 840 Evo SSD and put it into an Inateck USB 3.0 enclosure for my new MacBook Air.
When I plug it in, it asks me if I want to Initialise, Ignore or Eject the drive. If I choose Initialise, nothing happens.
If you look in Disk Utility, the Samsung root shows up, but no partitions. I am unable to reformat the drive or add a partition so that I can use it. I can't do anything with the drive.
I've tried to update the firmware etc. but don't get very far with no optical.
I've tried running the Windows versions using CrossOver, but the Samsung Magician keeps crashes on start and the firmware update can't see the drive.
Short of sending the drive back, what are my options?
Can I set up and update the drive using a Windows machine, and then reformat later as OSX Journalled?
I don't actually have a Windows machine here, I'd have to borrow one, so really getting it working on OSX would be preferable.
Any help would be great.
