Intel MAS tool doesn't work for old Intel 320 SSD

I tried to use this tool for my (old) Intel 320 series SSD. The PDF for the MAS tool says it should work for 320 drives. The drive is not recognised however.

 

fdisk lists the disk model as:

Disk /dev/sda: 149.5 GiB, 160041885696 bytes, 312581808 sectors

Disk model: INTEL SSDSA2CW16

 

This is on archlinux.

 

Can someone please advise?

Thanks, Patrick

Hello, PByrn6.

 

Thank you very much for waiting.

 

While the Intel SSD 320 is listed by the tool as part of the supported drives, the drive itself is currently EOIS (End of interactive support), this means Intel Customer Service no longer responds to inquiries for it, but you may want to try our Intel Community forums for discontinued products to get recommendations from fellow community members, taking also into consideration that your OS is not listed as part of the supported distributions by the IntelMAS.

 

Best regards,
