Samsung has stopped providing a Linux version of the 'Magician' for Consumer SSDs. The newer v2.0 only works with Enterprise PM863 and SM863 Series. So this is the older version v1.0. It should still be working with most Consumer SSDs but be aware that this is not the latest updated version of this software! For 983 ZET, 983 DCT, 883 DCT and 860 DCT (and potentially other models) you may try this package: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/samsung-ssd-dc-toolkit/

@sudhanshu502 @inox I'm creating a new package samsung-ssd-dc-toolkit using the source you suggest. Officially it supports 983 ZET, 983 DCT, 883 DCT and 860 DCT. Not so sure about other models ... ;)

Dear oberon2007, could you take a look at that static binary (3 years newer than yours), that supports bunch of other drives :)

"https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/global.semi.static/Samsung_SSD_DC_Toolkit_for_Linux_V2.1"

Get it with wget, chmod +x, run as root.

No Samsung SSD found!

I guess the only workaround now is to have a copy of Windows on your machine :(

@steadybright , I got confused. The situation is as described in the pinned comment. Samsung has discontinued Linux support for consumer models and there are no updates. So I'm afraid we cannot do much there.

steadybright commented on 2017-11-27 01:21

This version still fails to recognize the Samsung 840. (See details in my 2017-07-12 comment below. The results are identical to the earlier version of this package)

oberon2007 commented on 2017-11-25 23:58

Updated to v2.0
Please try again with the new version @Pietro_Pizzi !

Pietro_Pizzi commented on 2017-11-25 22:01

My two 850 EVO and one 960 EVO don't get recognized.

steadybright commented on 2017-07-12 14:25

Hello,

$ sudo magician --list

results in

No Samsung SSD found!

However

$ sudo hdparm -I /dev/sda

shows that I have a Samsung 840 installed:

Model Number: Samsung SSD 840 Series
Serial Number: S14[............]
Firmware Revision: DXT09B0Q

Please help!

Thank you,

sb

May be will be good idea to remove the 850 from the list of supported disks because it doesn't recognize it.
