Hello,

I have a MX500 here to work on with a SM2258H AB controller, i tryed to connect it to MRT but I don't get an ID or size.

Then I tryed to create a Virtual Translator but there was no module for the MX500. The Support suggested to try it with the ADATA-Module but in that Module is also just an SM2258G controller listed. Anyway I tryed that and It had some kind of effect but failed in the middle of the process. After I got an ID and it read a zize of 1GB...

After that the support of MRT suggested I should try a programm called Easy Tool v. 2.0.7. So I connected the SSD with an buffalo SATA to USB3 PCB to the PC. I shorted the twu pins labeled with JP3 to come to safe mode and connected the USB-port. But the programm was not able to find the disk.

I retryed the same with a Seagate-PCB and the same result. Both PCBs work fine and I tested them with other disks and they do there job...

Any Ideas what could be wrong? Any suggestions?

It should work with PC3000 SSD.

Is there some other method? Maybe buy a working MX500 and transfer the memory-chips?

Maybe try this?

In-circuit recovery of SSDs with "weak" NAND:

Does that not sound more like a controller issue when I get any ID? I get no model-info, no serial, no capacity, nothing... After trying to build a virtual translator I got at least some reaction. It just don't sound to me like that would help.

But thanks for sharing that - sounds really interesting for some cases.

ISTM that the controller is not brain dead. Instead it looks like it is busy.

I would first verify all the onboard supply voltages. IMO that should be standard practice, and it should only take a few minutes.

For that I would need help - electronics is really not my cup of coffee. If there is a plan or some scema which tell me what to test - no problem.
