I recently started buying Samsung SSDs to replace all my Crucial brand. I built another new system that has been functioning fine until adding a pair of Samsung 850 EVO. I periodically clone the System drive for backup but this time when I do so I get a working copy but I no longer have access to the external USB devices like USB stick and USB3 drives(ssds). The mouse and keyboard work. I see in device manage that I have a driver problem. I try to update but the ones installed are fine. I uninstall and reboot but nothing fixes this issue. I move the system drive(source) and try cloning to another SSD(destination) using another computer but still the same results. I have tried many applications like Macrium and others that have worked for me in the past but still not giving desired results.

 

 This almost seems to be a Samsung issue. I've been searching for a fix but nothing so far. Any one with any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Al.

Out of interest if you still have a working Crucial SSD have you tried a clone to that? If it does work OK then you have hit the nail on the head with it being a possible Samsung issue.

For the record, I have also cloned my system to a Crucial; SSD with no problem found, and also for backup purposes cloned to a Seagate ordinary mechanical drive, again after checking it no problems found.

I also use Macrium.

 I don't have a backup of the install on a Crucial SSD. At this point I'm considering a reinstall. I've found no one else with this problem or a possible fix.
