HC4 doesn't recognize Kingspec SSDs

Post by l30bola »

Hi! So, my HC4 just arrived and after some tweaking with some Linux distros (DietPi, Armbian) I just bumped on the issue that HC4 doesn't recognize my KingSpec SSD. I have 2 KingSpec 1 TB each. They are tested and working. On the installed Armbian Focal I chose to use, I've already checked dmesg output for anything missing and there isn't (only the SSD recognition itself).

Here is the dmesg output for sata and ahci:

Do you have other SATA devices to test the HC4 hardware?

BTW, we've shipped over several thousands of HC4 units and there were three SSDs reported which are not compatible with the HC4 SATA controller(ASM1061) so far.
- Kinston A400 960GB (240 and 480GB models worked fine though)
- Tammuz RX550 120GB
- TeamGroup L5 120GB
We heard that Silicon Motion SM2258 chipset in the SSDs seemed not to be compatible with the ASM1061.

Unfortunately I don't have another SATA device to test, but I'm willing to buy an HDD to test this. I'll let you guys know. I'll ping some friends to know if they have any spare HDD to lend just for this test.

An update on this: I bought a couple of 4 TB Seagate IronWolf and they were recognized, so I'd say that the KingSpec ones aren't really recognized.
