XPS 15 9550 SSD Problem

Jump to solution

Hi,

My XPS currently has an NVMe SSD drive.

I bought a second 2.5" SSD - Samsung 860 EVO drive and added It to expand my storage.

The issue is the drive is running only on sata 1.5Gb/sec Interface!

Performance is horrible with read/write speeds of about 130 MB/sec.

I've removed the drive and connected It to my desktop system and It's working just fine (> 500MB/sec sata6)

Any suggestion on what could be happening?

Thanks for your help.

Solved. It was a bad sata cable. Ordered new one, and got sata 6gb operation functioning. Thanks.

Thank you. I've read the thread and it's the same issue. But I have an XDYGX cable, does It mean it's faulty ou it's a different model? If it's a different model I can't find variations of It (for high speed sata). This is what I have: AAM00_HDD_CABLE DC02C00BL00 CN-0XDYGX-DATI2
