laborious drive – Exterior SSD with SATA to USB 3 not being acknowledged by MacBookAir M2 whereas with SATA to USB 2 is working positive


The SSD:

  • Samsung 850EVO 500GB (ExFat formatted)

The adapters:

  • SATA to USB 3 kind A (ICY BOX IB-AC603a-U3)
  • SATA to USB 3 kind A (Sabrent)
  • SATA to USB 2 kind A (ICY BOX IB-AC603)
  • USB 3 kind A to USB 3 kind C (Sabrent)

The SSD works positive with all SATA to USB kind A adapters once I join it to my 2011 MacBookPro witch solely has USB 2 kind A ports.

It additionally works positive on my MacBookAir M2 once I use the SATA to USB 2 kind A adapter together with the USB 3 kind A to USB 3 kind C adapter. However after all solely with the velocity of USB 2.

It isn’t even being acknowledged by my MacBookAir M2 as quickly as I am utilizing the SATA to USB 3 kind A adapter together with the USB 3 kind A to USB 3 kind C adapter. Not in Disk Utilities not in System Info.

In brief:
SATA to USB(A) 3 -> USB(A) 3 to USB(C) -> MBA M2 = not being acknowledged.
SATA to USB(A) 2 -> USB(A) 3 to USB(C) -> MBA M2 = works positive however sluggish.
SATA to USB(A) 2 -> MBP 2011 = works positive however sluggish.

I’ve tried Disk Utilities’s first Assist, completely different Macs and some completely different adapters. It’s each time the identical. I am unable to get it to work on the MacBookAir M2 with USB 3. The disc is ExFat formatted, however that shouldn’t be an issue, as it’s not even being acknowledged in Disk Utilities.

Has anybody skilled the identical challenge, or has any thought what I’m lacking?
