T580 with Transcend m.2 2242 ssd compatible issue

Q: T580 with Transcend m.2 2242 ssd compatible issue

HI, Everyone I just bought my first T580 and got a Transcend MTS-400 128GB M.2 2242 ssd to do a custom upgrade my self. After carefuly watch the Lenovo tutorial video on Youtube, I installed the ssd on the 2nd PCIe slot. After boot into the Bios, the Bios couldn't detect the new ssd. Updated the Bios to the newest version and still no luck. So I spend some time searching online and found the following post: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T470-unable-to-detect-M-2-SSD-2242-after... It looks like some compatibility issue with certain brand of m.2 2242 SSD. I wonder if that's the case for my new T580? Does Lenovo ever comes out with a list of m.2 ssd that their Thinkpad is compatible with?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,I have a new T470 sitting here. I'd like to use a 2242 SSD (128 or 256GB) in the WWAN slot to run my system off, and also - as a separate data drive - use a 2.5" SSD that I have in my current work laptop .Are there any official recommendations, or a positive experiences as to which 2242 drives are compatible with the T470? I know there have been issues with the T450 and 460, so I'm reluctant to just buy one to realize it doesn't work. Thanks,Michael

I used to use XXClone, it expired won't update

Tried Reflect it can't find the drive I have says I need a drive, "please upgrade to the paid version" - If I was a rich person I would not be worried about all this. I am poor, I can't even buy food at the end of the month.

Is there ANY free software that can clone in any way my disk to keep me from losing everything like the last time my hard drive crashed which does not require a genius or massive expert to run?

I'm experiencing an issue with intermittent shutdowns on my new T580 (20L9) with the Ultra Docking Station (40AJ). The issue appears to derive from the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework driver, as I typically see a corresponding error (DPTF Event ID 256 - Unhandled Exception) in Event Viewer, the details for which I'm including below. I'm running Windows 10 x64 1803 (Build 17134.81). It appears that certain CPU/GPU-intensive tasks will tip the driver to immediately put the system in sleep mode, so not technically a full system shutdown. Most recently, I attempted to restore a browser session in Chrome after an OS restart, opening a number of browser windows w/ multiple tabs each, which triggered the issue. Over the course of my daily use, it will happen anywhere from one to five times, and it's extremely annoying.
 
I have not experienced the issue with the system undocked, however, my computer is docked about 90% of the time I'm using the machine, and I did recently update to Win 10 1803, which could be part of the problem (?) I am using **all** of the latest drivers available on Lenovo's site, including that for the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework, version 8.3.10207.5567 as of the time of this post. I'm also running the latest BIOS, i.e. 1.10. 
 
I'm not sure if there's a BIOS setting available that could help with the issue or some power management setting? I'm including the full Event Viewer details below. Please advise.

A:Random sleeps on T580 w/ Ultra Docking Station - Intel Thermal Framework issue

Did you ever get this resolved?  I have a user with the exact same symptoms, but we haven't done a lot of testing off the dock yet.  We've updated to the latest Intel Thermal Framework drivers from Lenovo (Just came out on 6/8) but that didn't help.  Updated to the latest drivers from Intel, no better.  Tried dock firmware, nothing.  Lenovo came out and replaced the system board - no better.  We push a clean corporate image to ALL machines, include a few hundred Thinkpads we have out there, and this is the only one exhibiting this behavior (Also the only T580 we have out there so far, everything else is T480.)  Lenovo wants their image back on it before we do anything else, which is tough because the user is a few hundred miles away.

I just bought a second SSD (Transcend 256GB MTS400 M2 2242) for my Lenovo T480 but it is not recognized in the BIOS nor Windows. The laptop came with a 512 GB M2 2280 SSD. When I plug the same SSD in my old E540, it works straight away. The old 16GB SDD from the E540 also does not work in the T480. I read this was also an issue with the T470 until a BIOS upgrade. Did anybody have the same issue or could Lenovo check this issue?

A:Thinkpad T480 M2 2242 SSD

Hello and welcome,
 
The SSD you list is a SATA device.  The WWAN/SSD slot is described in the base spec as PCIe - and doesn't mention SATA.  It may be that SATA devices are not supported in that slot.

A:Thinkpad e540 is it possible to ad a m2.2242 ssd and boot from it

I don't have one to try, but there is a slot for a WWAN card or a 2242 M.2 SSD that is easy to access.  Remove the big cover and it is visible.  If you lay the machine down with the memory slots and the HDD toward you, it is above the HDD, to the left of the CPU.  The other thinkpads of that generation (T440, T540, W540) will all boot fine from the drive.

x240 supports up to two m.2 2242 SSDs, but with SATA interface, not a PCIe NVME one the RC100 has. So, x240 doesn't support RC100.

On the mb, I need an 8-pin plug for processor power (#30 on attachment) and the new psu only has a 4-pin plug (which does fit into half of the 8-pin plug). Can I run the mb with just this 4-pin plug or is there a danger in trying this? Thanks.

Hi. I've just received my T460s and a Transcend 2242 512GB SSD card, but unfortunatelly this ThinkPad doesn't detect the SSD at all. I'm disappointed because I was sure I read somewhere that it was technically possible to do that on the WWAN M2 slot, but now there are other reports telling it's not working. My question is: is this a hardware limitation or is it possible that a BIOS update can enable SSD support on the 2242 slot? This would be ideal to me so that I can have Windows 10 and Linux with dual boot, without sacrificing storage. Thank you.

Hi there,
I have got an issue with a custom USB 2.0 device (with our own firmware) regarding enumeration and driver installation in windows 7 using USB 3.0.
The devices uses the BOS descriptor (OS 1.0) to provide a compatible ID (RNDIS) for selecting the appropriate inf file / driver (rndiscmp.inf / rndiscmp6.sys). This works fine in Windows 7 using USB 2.0 and also in Windows 8 using USB 3.0 or 2.0 (on many
different installations). But it does not work in Windows 7 using USB 3.0. Neither using intel nor renesas USB 3.0 driver stack. Analyzing USB traffic I can observe that the Descriptor is requested from the device. Hereupon the compatible ID is sent to the
PC but it can not be found in registry and hence it is not used to select the driver automatically (evaluating setupapi.dev). The driver must be chosen manually then.

Actually the USB requests are the same as in the USB 2.0 case but something goes wrong using USB 3.0.


Does anybody have any idea? Or any additional debugging possibility?
Thank you very much!

Also immediate install of the software package, which has things that I want to use. OK at that point. Part of the package is an Autorun feature that brings up the special menu whenever you plug the drive into a USB port and it starts up. All looks good on the laptop now and all works as it should.

Next, plug the ext hdd into the desktop. The hdd starts, and the small Windows autorun notice appears (not the one from the software package as on the laptop) asking if I want to see its files.

Im thinking about bying one of these cards. Either the SE or PRO.
Now, do you have any experience about Transcennd manufactured videocards? Are they good and wich one should i buy?
 

A:Transcend Radeon 9600

If I were you, I'd buy a Sapphire card because they are very good.

Also, don't buy the "SE" because it sucks Buy a Pro or XT.

Hi
I have a 1tb Transcend storejet ehd and has always worked fine since I got it a few months ago till today last night I left it plugged in with my laptop open and this morning it wasn't listed in my computer
I have restarted the laptop and tried all usb ports but nothing.
It is showing up though under devices and printers and I did the troubleshooter and nothing
I read online about going in computer management and earlier under disk management it was not showing at the top but was showing at the bottom in those box bits but I ejected it and took it round my friends to see if it would work on his laptop and it was just doing the same as mine not being under my computer but since I got home it isn't showing at the bottom of disk management although it is still under devices and printers.
I really don't know what else to do I am so worried because it has every photo and video of my youngest daughters on there since they were born and I was in the process of backing it all up on another ehd when this happened please It would mean so much if someone could help me to try and get it working or recovering everything on it
Thanks

could be the enclosure it is in, assuming the internal HD is SATA. You could try a "caddy" usb to sata from someplace like newegg , open up the external caddy you have now and swap the hard drive over...or if you have access to a desktop with SATA hook your hard drive from the caddy up to one of the sata ports, use windows explorer to see if you can see the drive. also see if the drive shows in the bios.
