Comments on Firmware Update for MyDigitalSSD M2X NVMe M.2 Enclosure Adapter

I have an adapter with the same chipset and although the update worked. I have noticed that the actual chipset JMS583 over heats like mad when under heavy load. I am now trying to source either a heat bridge or a 20x20x5mm heat sink for the chipset. I have also noticed that on the particular adapter that I have that the later versions have had holes drilled down each side of the enclosure. So I suspect that the issues being faced are that the chipset is shutting down due to heat.

I recently bought the oem version of this, jmicron same chipset. Mine had an old firmware.

The firmware update is compatible with the oem but the drive doesn't function under 10gpbs. Takes 20sec of 900mb/s read and the adapter will crash hard.

Under usb gen 1 5gbps no problems, passes stress test when it's capped at 500mb/s.

The firmware download link leads to a 404 error.

Sorry about that, all fixed.

Updated the firmware fine but the drive still has same issues on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Intermittently disconnects, locks up, disappears, works then doesn’t work, copies 100 GB then can’t copy 1MB.

Going to have to send it back along with the new 2TB NVME.
