OCZ Agility 2 Partially Detected

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have an Agility 2 60GB that has been lying around for a while now. I know all about the Panic Lock/Sleep Bug, but i think my case may be slightly different. When i plug in just the power cable, the light on the drive is green. As soon as i plug in the SATA cable it goes red. At first the drive is completely undetected, but after a couple of minutes it appears in Disk Management. It shows 53GB Unallocated space, and when i click on Initialize and choose either GPT or MBR, i get an error saying something along the lines of "The specified file could not be found"

In MiniTool Partition Wizard the drive shows up as well but i cannot do anything with it other than scan the partition. It lists it as "Bad Disk" and though it scans the partition for files, it says none were found. I ran the OCZ Toolbox (in Windows) to try and update the firmware, but it doesnt detect the drive.

Is there anything i can do to revive this drive? It seems like it's salvageable somehow because it actually does detect.

Thanks for your replies.

I would have to say its dead, not sure if you can send it out for recovery or not, may cost upwards of $1200. Id say time for a new one.

try creating a new partition table (not just partitions) with gparted live cd. If you can't , then i think it's dead and since you have already tried gpt and mbr it's probably dead but worth a try.

Do you have the latest firmware? If not, can you update it?

I'm not sure what firmware is on it, but I'm certain its not the latest. I couldn't update the firmware via Widows version of OCZ Toolbox because the software did not detect the drive. I haven't tried anything else outside of Windows though. I'll try gparted though, and perhapsthe bootable version of the firmware flasher.

Yes try the bootable iso to update the firmware

I tried the bootable version of OCZ SSD Utility, but it also did not detect the drive. I can't find a bootable version of the old OCZ Toolbox.. So I'm not sure if maybe the newer utility just isn't compatable with my drive.

So far the only case in which I can get this drive to detect is in Windows. I installed EaseUS Partition Master and it picked up the drive at about 55 GB Unallocated. When I try to Wipe Data and Create Partition I get an error that some of the processes couldn't be competed, and then it immediately reverts back to Unallocated.

I'm really confused as to why Windows and installed partition utilities can see and understand the drive and its parameters, but the BIOS and bootable utilities cannot.

Even the Windows 10 Setup disk detected the drive but reports it as 0mb and it cannot create a partition on it.

Edit: i tried the gParted Live disk and it could not detect my drive. Literally only Windows 10 can detect and understand this drive, which really makes no sense because the BIOS can't even detect it.
