    Post #9 shows 1 count for CRC and 113 power loss for other SSD. Yeah i kind of knew this about power, definitely enough power for system check my specs too. PSU is new. As said i changed the SATA cable and made sure other connections were secured, so far we will have to see.

    Trying to research unexpected power loss count on these SSD drives seems to show in some cases the PC does not properly shutdown drive when shutdown PC or of course you get BSOD and power loss to PC.

    I switched to high quality cables a while ago. They may look all the same but there are some better than others. Most good ones are certified for SATA3 and have metal catches at the end, gold plated contacts and where needed 90 degree one or both ends so there are no sharp bends when installed. SATA data cables are pretty stiff and pressure on contacts side tend to pull them out. With their speeds SSDs are more susceptible to IO errors.

    You may be right ! I tend to try to be too good with wire management in case, i had them in a figure eight. Possible bends on them can cause bad connections or break inside wires like in the article i linked.

    I did have the ones with latches they were not cheap and SATA III 6/Gbs, but never saw the ones with gold connectors yet. Looking online not many brands make them and most are not known brands.

    I am usually one to buy the best quality of anything. If have any links to better qualities i would appreciate to see them.
    ASUS makes one i never saw looks decent has right angle, found few for good price online, ASUS makes good products. File:ASUS SATA cable 14G000130223.jpg - Wikimedia Commons

    Well 2 weeks after changing a cable has shown no loss of SSD.
    Bought some different SATA Cables in case it was and if others in system have same cause, changed all.

    Problem reoccurred after little over 2 weeks, Think i will try changing SATA ports this time. Seems Port 0 (OS) Port 2 (Data HDD) work fine with no loss, Port 1 (D: Games) giving me heartaches. To think if it has anything to do with SATA power cable, all 3 drives are on the same cable to PSU ( like a daisy chain), why wouldn't the rest go out.

    Question regarding SATA Ports


    I have been trying to diagnose an issue i have had with a SSD drive, if it is bad or port is bad.

    My C: drive with OS is on SATA Port 0, drive with issue is D: is on SATA port 1, then i have another Drive E: HDD on SATA port 2. I want to swap ports with the D: and E: drive, SATA Ports 1 & 2 to try to see if the port is bad or the drive, knowing i have not had any issues with other ports or drives.

    Question is will this cause me any issues temporarily to test this with order of the drive letters and ports according to way the OS will see it, meaning accessing files on other 2 drives, D: & E: ?

    In a funny kind of way your issue sounds like my DVD disappearing drive issue I had a few months back. In the end I wound up doing a clean install of the OS and the issue has not happened since.

    Like you I replaced the SATA cable, power connector, switched ports, even bought a new drive. Nothing worked outside of doing an OS reinstall. Anyway I hope you get your issue sorted.

    BTW when your drive disappears does Windows Explorer freeze? I was also getting that anytime I attempted to access the DVD drive, when it was showing. Just curious?

    Funny this happened few months after doing a clean install because of another issue with windows explorer crashing. Now that issue with explorer is solved and this ends up happening, but only on the D: Drive SATA Port 1. Spoke to Gigabyte on it, it's possible for the port can be bad, but odds on it being bad are not high, unless it being all ports or SATA controller on the board itself.

    Have not tried changing ports yet because of the understanding if OS drive recognized where the D: drive will be if i move it to say Port 2 instead of Port 1 which it is on now, put drive E: on Port 1 see if the port is bad or not. Question i was asking as I have no other PC to test the drive on. The drive with the issue only has games on it. Read post #18 understand how i wanted to test it. Thank you for your thoughts and hopes, as i am determined find the source. Hoping it is the drive or like you say because i rather not have to RMA the motherboard, removing it won't be fun.
