WD Blue 3D NAND SSD 1TB is not working on USB 3.0

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys !
I bought a new WD Blue 3D NAND SSD (1TB). It is not detected by the USB 3.0 port but by the USB 2.0 port (tested with lsblk).
What can I do to be recognized on the fast 3.0 port?

I am using Armbian_5.73.190128_Rockpi-4b_Debian_stretch_dev_4.20.0

Best thanks in advance ... !

I haven't had any luck with reliable USB3 and SSD's on my Rock64's (7x), so I'm using USB2. Tried powered usb hubs, etc.
There are a bunch of threads about it on here and arch forums, plus ayufan's github.

Sorry :( 
If you spot something I'll be keen to hear.

Hi suberimakuri!


Apparently not every SSD/USB3.0 converter is supported by the Armbian_5.73.190128_Rockpi-4b_Debian_stretch_dev_4.20.0 version. I have now 3 days a Renkforce SATA docking station CLONER with 2 drive bays and USB 3.0 port in use: both slots contain a WD Red with 3GB each, both are recognized and run reliably.

Under Armbian_5.67_Rockpi4b_Debian_stretch_default_4.4.154_desktop_20181210-gpt the plugged SSD was still wonderfully recognized. Obviously not all drivers were taken over in the new version?!?


I conclude the topic as solved.
