Why is my hard drive registering as ASMT 2115 Media?
I recently upgraded my hard drive on my Macbook pro because the old one failed to a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB.
I was able to format and boot El Capitan onto the SSD via USB through a hard shell case for hard drives.
Whenever I connect the SSD inside the computer and turn it on I get a blinking folder with a question mark.
I purchased a new hard drive cable to see if that will maybe fix the solution. I am waiting for it to arrive tomorrow however I am able to use the computer because the computer can't access the SSD through the hard drive shell.
When I go to disk utility it shows the hard drive labeled as 'ASMT 2115 Media' and says its an external physical disk.
When I go to connect the new cable and put the SSD inside the computer will that even fix the blinking folder problem or did I format it the wrong way?
Questa è una buona domanda?
Under device manager (at least on a pc) you may see ASMT 2115 USB Device, which is a USB to SATA adapter board. It's totally normal, however it may not be as fast as a direct connection to the mobo. Also, even if you don't have an actual drive attached to the adapter, it will still show up under both device manager and Computer > Drives, in fact it will reserve a drive letter without an actual drive attached. That's by design, there's nothing you can do about it.
Hi, I bought a Samsung EVO 860 2TB for my laptop earlier this Summer and it is working perfectly. I bought an identical second 860 and put it in a SABRENT enclosure to use for clones and it worked fine, but Samsung Magician when looking at both drives recognizes the one in the system but says "not supported" for the drive connected via USB in the SABRENT enclosure. So I bought a USB30 to ESATA cable and connected the drive that way. I want to use Magician (I have the latest version) to periodically check the health of both drives. Magician still says the drive is Not Supported. Help! Note: The clones are being created perfectly.
Magician recognizes and properly analyzes the drive in the system but gives me "not supported" for the external drive.
Anything I can do to get Samsung Magician to report on both drives?

@Jeff Berger < As long as you can boot from "bare metal" via a USB drive, try swapping the internal with the external drive just to see where the problem lies, then go from there.
