Im not sure what the deal is with this drive so im selling this as is. It was my personal drive. Ive had it for about 1 year. I had 2 of them in raid and they were very impressive. I recently got a 2011 socket and put together a new computer. I sold one SSD and tried to install windows on this one. I cant get my new board to detect this drive. Ive tried all the sata ports on the board. Ive updated my bios. I tried a new sata cable. I dont know WTF the problem is. It was working fine and now for some reason its giving me a hard time. So again, sold as is. May or may not be working. Hopefully you can do something with it cause im out of ideas. Either the SSD is bad, my new board dont like it, or something else that i have not thought of. I dont have a price in mind will sell for whatever. PM me your offers.

I sold most of the equipment from my last computer. I have been thinking maybe its stuck in raid mode. A few years ago i had a pair of western digital caviar black in raid 0. When i removed the drives and tried to use them in another computer i could not get them to detect no matter what i did. After awhile i decided to plug both of them back in the computer that had been running them in raid. I went back in to the raid menu and deleted the raid array. After that my other computer detected it. I have a feeling this might be some kind of problem like that. Ive noticed when your drives are striped for raid they dont show in the bios only in the raid menu.

I will sell it for 5 BTC. However i just posted this so give me a few days to see if i can get a better offer. If i dont get one its yours for 5 coins.

Have you tried booting Linux?  It will bypass your BIOS so it doesn't matter what it's formatted as, you should be able to zero the first few sectors using dd and then make the drive work in any OS again.  A bootable image of Ubuntu or something would be all you need.  If you're not familiar with dd, mount, and dmesg, then remove all other drives, boot up Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) and erase the whole drive from the menu.

I havent really tried anything but updating the bios. Not being able to detect and install windows was enough for me to buy a new SSD and forget about this one.

I will pay actual shipping cost, and will not charge for my labor to try to get this working. If I succeed I will pay a fair value. Otherwise I will dispose of it and not charge for that.

I'll give you 12 BTC for it.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

I was hoping no one else who was familiar with the problem he's experiencing would see this... oh well!  Grin

Im glad there are people here who are willing to play with it. I hope somebody gets it working, its a great SSD and i would hate for it to go to waste. 15 coins takes it if there are no better offers.
