I am quite new to SSD, first drive in, a few USB's done. This is what happens on Atola, a little help please ;)

I have a Samsun SSD 250Gb SSD microsata connector.
Comes ready fine in atola, Diagnostics bellow.

Here is the bit I don't get: media scan works perfect, no errors. BUT imaging does not work, will not read any data, none.

Any ideas, please?

PS. user has told me disk is encripted with (i think) EFS. Would this explain the above? (yes, i am trying to get the cert backup to dis-encrypt)

Many thanks!

Very likely.

But in this case before with normal disks I have always been able to image. the problem then comes with file recovery our mounting the recovered image.

I think I should be able to image anyway?

Anyway, no cert backup from client yet, so no hurry..

We've never dealt with Samsung SSDs, but if I had to guess, this *could* be firmware damage. I would try different copy modes (PIO-only, for example).
