Wait, the PM830 is a mSATA SSD. The one in the link is a normal SATA.

I'd make a thread on this for help or post in the Samsung 830 thread.

that's weird mate, It's not mSATA in my case. it's normal looking SSD with normal SATA plugs? I don't get it.
cheers.

I was wrong lol, it is just I haven't looked up the drive in a while. Yea, you just have the OEM drive, not a consumer version. There should be no difference really.

No. But if you are one of the few unlucky ones that do, there is no solution for you other than buying a different brand drive.
