I shouldn't make any difference which port you're connected to, but i guess stranger things have happened.

What is the stranger things ? Well i am installed UEFI with GUID partition style on 2 SSD's i have C: & D: drives and the HDD is MBR style.

D: SSD being one with issue.

Somone else mentioned to me they felt AE Unexpected power loss in SMART data may show a power issue with the SSD and also if cable or port was bad also the C7 Ultra DMA CRC Error rate would show values.

 

Researching the Unexpected Power Loss did not come up with much in case of that exact fact, more about being improper shutdown of drives, loss of power to PC, BSOD ,freeze up will add this data to SMART. Both of my SSD's showed similar values on this.

 

Telling me to check advanced pwer settings if drive was set to shutoff at certain time, but this has been disabled always and i do not use hibernate or sleep modes.

Just a thought from another to possibly be the issue, but other drives work fine on same power cable to PSU.

A bent pin? A bad trace on the motherboard. Just saying it's not impossible for the SATA port to be the issue. Just not likely.

Looks to be a normal range to me.

Yes, i am not in doubt of reasons could cause this as few things can be. As said intermittent problems are the toughest to solve.

So you feel more common reasons could be the SATA cable ? When you say bent pin mean inside SATA Ports connections or the SATA cable, or i assume either or ?

Since cable change it is fine, but that was case after checking connections and reconnecting it, as again time will tell all on any solution try.

Came across this on research, similar to my issue   http://www.heritage-...roblems-solved/

Found the cable to be the issue.

Well it was little over 2 weeks since changing the SATA Cable and it happend to Disk 1, port 1 again. My next step will be to change to another port feeling something wrong with SATA Port 1. Only other thought was power cable, but it goes straight to the PSU and 3 drives are on same SATA Power cable, 2 are SSD's one a HDD. Other 2 work fine.Have reorginized all cables a few days agao made sure no bends in any, even changed all SATA cables to brand new.

Question can i temporarily move supposide drive with issue on Port 1 to another port when it has stuff installed on it, will windows have a issue running files on it. Drive is assigned D: letter and i will move E: drive to port 1 and D: drive to port 2 which E: was on. That way if E: drive fails i know it is the port, if D: drive fails on port 2 i know it was the drive.

o.k. i swapped the ports on the D: (port 1) and E: (port  2) drives. If D: drive disappears now, we know issue was not port 1, unless E: drive does.

Thanks for keeping us updated. Weird issue. If it were the controller I'd have expected it tot get worse, or have failed by now. If the same thing happens on the new port, I wouldn't spend any more time on it. Request an RMA and warranty exchange it.

Yes, exactly i would RMA the SSD, but has not happened yet by swapping ports and as before can sometimes take a week or more, try to stress each drive now.

Does this article make me think now can be this model drive, my guess is as good as any. Did speak with Gigabyte on being board issue, feel if board most ports be bad would be more common then one port, sometimes anything is possible. Thanks and your welcome.

:whistling:  Nothing happened yet !!

 

 

Possible from swapping ports that being the HDD which is now on Port 1 and not having the issue as the SSD did, can it still be an issue with port and HDD is just not as sensitive to a problem as SSD would be ? 

 

Since SSD being on different port not disappearing yet, but  a few times it took a week or 2.
