    looks like my Samsung ssd drive has failed :(
    Zidoo recognise Drive but reports back nothing on it no more .
    Tried zdmc and Kodi the same
    Media center the same .
    Tried un mount / remount ……

    connected it via usb cable to Zidoo nothing
    will see if laptop can do anything or samsung software will retrieve but i doubt it .

    Nothing to do with media players, but I had a Drevo SSD completely annihilate itself a few months back.

    I'm surprised brand like Samsung has failed though. I switched to SanDisk - no idea if they're bettter or not, but it seemed a good idea.

    Hook the drive up to a computer and see whether it shows up in Device Manager/Drive Manager. If it isn't recognized, try with a 2nd computer if possible. If the content on the Drive is important, take extra steps, using different computers to verify, and try to salvage the content on your drive. How much time you spend will depend on whether you have backups for the Data on the Samsung ssd. FWIW, I have Samsung SSD's on 3 different computers, 2 of them professional 4K video-editing systems, and have had no problems in 3 or 4 years.
