2102: Detection error on HHD2 (Mini SATA)

2019-06-07, 16:14 PM

I've read through the posts and still do not have a clear way to resolve this issue. 

 

I find it interesting that I have to take my computer a part to reset the mini drive? It does not appear that a good fix for most users? 

What I don't understand is why I cannot I disable this in BIOS?

 

Anyone have a real solution to this?

 

I see no option to make this error go away? Anyone know if this part can be replaced i find no part number?

 

It also looks like this model Laptop also has a fan issue. 

It's acting up and I want to replace it but its no longer available? Any other options?

It may help others to help you if you indicate what model laptop you have.

IIRC that was a 24GB mSATA card used as a cache for the main drive.

 

It can be replaced, and they seem to be available - although expensive for their capacity.  After replacement you will probably need to reinstall the express cache software (perhaps after partitioning).

 

Given the price point a lot of us chose to replace that cache with a higher capacity mSATA drive, move the OS to it, and use the spinner for a data drive.  No cache involved since the mSATA OS drive is much faster than the spinner.

 

There's also a chance that re-seating the current card will get it going again.

Hello,

 

From what I recollect (my S230u is about 1,200 miles away at the moment), I just removed the 24GB mSATA SSD and the 2.5" HDD in mine, and installed a 2.5" SATA SSD. 

 

Regards,
