Intel 5400S / SMI NVX658.00

Fri Feb 21, 2020 2:40 pm

Hello everybody!

I am new to the board and wanted to give a quick introduction. I own a repair- and data recovery company in Germany, we specialize in board level repairs and data recovery from nearly any device. I hope I can learn from this board and also help others when help is needed! :)

Today we got an Intel SSD 5400S SSDSC2KF256H6L in for data recovery. The drive does not ID at all. From what I can tell without schematics and a working donor, the drive gets power, however it is not recognized in the BIOS nor by PC3000.

I read about some DR companies claiming to be able to recover that drive but I am guessing there is a SM2258 variant of the same model out there which they are talking about.

So, does anybody have a clue on how to go on with this SSD?

Thanks and best regards!

What's the main controller chip of that SSD?

Hey,

only read your reply today. Controller name is SMI NVX658.00.
The drive is now back to the customer, but I am still interested in the possible solution.

Regards :)

I've never heard of that controller. You sure that's right?

If it's an Intel modified Silicon Motion controller it's probably not supported by PC-3000 at this time, so unrecoverable for now.
