I just got the following:
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B077S6 ... UTF8&psc=1
and put a 2242 M.2 SSD in it.
It tests really well in Linux Mint, but I have very strange behaviour with it in my Pi4.
It was so unstable at first and uses the problematic JMicron controller (152d:0578 JMicron Technology Corp. / JMicron USA Technology Corp. JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge) so I set the USB quirk like so https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 8&t=245931.
That allowed me to boot with it inserted, but if I happened to insert it with the Pi4 already booted, it always crashes LXDE.
When I tried to boot from it following these instructions: https://jamesachambers.com/raspberry-pi ... sh-drives/ it behaved like it would on first boot but all USB ports were locked up! No keyboard or mouse would work, including any plugged in during boot. None of the USB 2 or 3 ports would respond.
Even stranger, if you take a look at those instructions, the PARTUUID on both my previous SSD that I was booting from and this new one are the same. That should not happen?
Any advice, or is this just a weird adapter? It's too bad, it's nice & small and self-contained.
