Issues on DH87RL with MSATA drive Crucial M500

Hi all,

I have a mSATA drive on which my virtual machines are running. When under load I regularly receive errors from the drive like the follows:

I found various threads but most of them indicated a bad SATA cable to be the issue. Since this is a mSATA drive which is directly attached to the mainboard there's no cable involved.

Then I found a thread on this forum indicating a voltage problem. Can anyone confirm compatibility issues with this mainboard+msata combination?

Is there a way to override and manually adjust the voltage in the BIOS to provide the msata drive with the appropriate voltage?

Hello Sneaker15,

Try updating the BIOS of the motherboard. Check for firmware updates for this mSATA.

What happens if you test this mSATA in a different motherboard?

Hi Kevin,

thanks for the quick response.

I had BIOS and MSATA Firmware already updated to latest version. Unfortunately that didn't help.

Also I don't have another motherboard to try but ordered an USB 3.0 to MSATA converter. Will try that as soon as the device arrives and let you know about the outcome.

Any advice in the meantime?

Thanks

Martin
