Experienced a number of freeze-up errors on my 540s M2 drive (SSDSCKKW240H6)
Took the following steps:
Everything seems OK - but when I try to create a partition table on the newly-erased drive, I get I/O errors, and can't write any data.
I tried a second secure erase... but still experiencing the I/O errors.
Any suggestions, or is this device simply FUBAR ?

Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.
I understand you are getting I/O errors in the SSD. Is there any chance that you can connect the drive in a Windows* system and run the Intel® SSD Toolbox to perform a Full Diagnostic Scan and also to provide the drive details using this tool?
The tool can be downloaded from the following site: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28447/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Toolbox
To export the drive details, just click on the “Export” button at the lower right corner, and attach the file in your response.
Have a nice day.

Thanks for the reply.
I ran a Full Diagnostic Scan on the drive & the result was : Read Scan Completed Successfully.
Drive details attached.
I still cannot create a partition. Windows Disk Management "could not perform the request because of an an I/O device error"
Note that the computer is an Intel "SkullCanyon" (NUC6i7KYK) NUC. I have tried the SSD in both slot 0 and slot 1. Same problem. Other SSD's are working correctly in each slot.
