  • SSD Model # and Serial # Mismatch

    Hi guys, I just today bought a new SSD, the Samsung 850 Evo 1TB. I got home, and plugged it in, and the drive is identifying as a Samsung 750 Evo, with the wrong model #, serial #, and the wrong disk size (120 GB).

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could do to fix this? I started reading around, and it seems this may be related to Gigabyte motherboards, though I couldn't find anything that matched up quite right to what I'm experiencing. My motherboard is the Gigabyte Auroras K5, with the latest F6 BIOS revision.

    Thanks in advanced!

    I ended up returning the Samsung 850 Evo I purchased back to the store, and bought a new one. The new one was immediately detected as an 850 Evo with 1TB, so I think this was just a case of a defective drive.
