Samsung is (finally) releasing a patch for its 980 PRO SSDs
According to Puget System, the problems encountered by users are related to the 3B2QGXA7 firmware and would particularly concern the 980 PRO 2TB SSDs, although other models may be affected by an issue that is characterized by more and more problems. errors on the SSD.
Some users, especially on the Reddit platform, mention here more than 6,000 errors on an SSD less than a year old as well as an SSD which, after more than 32,000 errors, got stuck in read-only. The root cause of these errors is unclear, but it does seem to be firmware related. Problem, once an SSD is affected, it is not possible to restore it.
If there is no question of resurrecting an SSD, the new firmware released by Samsung should normally prevent new errors from appearing. This is the 5B2QGXA7 version. If your 980 PRO has firmware 3B2QGXA7, we can’t recommend updating it too soon.
This update is done with the Samsung Magician software. Be careful not to perform a scan of the SSD before launching it, because it also leads to the appearance of errors. Finally, note that the 980 PRO with firmware 4B2QGXA7 and 5B2QGXA7 are not affected by the problem.
