No SMART data from NVMe SSD via JMicron JMS583-based Enclosure

Recommended Posts

I have an Icy Box IB-1816M-C31 USB 3.1 Gen 2 enclosure containing a 512GB Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD, for which Scanner cannot read the SMART data. This enclosure uses a JMicron JMS583 USB-NVMe bridge, and shows up as a UASP device using the ASUS UAS Storage Driver (removing this driver and using the default driver, which takes it out of UASP mode, doesn't change anything).

CystalDiskInfo is able to read the SMART data, as is smartctl when run with the -d sntjmicron option to correctly identify the USB device.

The stickied Direct I/O Test tool cannot read the SMART data either - it can only retrieve the following SSD data, no matter what method is used:

  Version:   40

  Model:   SamsungSSD 950 PRO 2B0Q
  Serial number:   DD56419883A90

  Bus type:   Usb
  Command queuing:   True
  Device type:   0x00
  Raw device properties:   0
  Removable media:   False

  Vendor ID:   Samsung
  Product ID:   SSD 950 PRO 2B0Q
  Product revision:   0204

Every other option shows as a red cross, unless ScsiPassthroughJmicron is selected. In that case, SMART status under Direct I/O becomes available (but not any other option), however it reports as Status: Failing

Oh boy.

I know that we've had issues with JMicron stuff.  For this, the "Unsafe Direct I/O" option may need to be enabled. 

As for the Direct IO Test, it may not actually give info, because .... this isn't SMART data. It's NVMe Health info. It's a different protocol, and different info.  However, it is shown in very similar ways. 

 

Also, what version of StableBit Scanner are you using?

I'm running StableBit Scanner 2.5.4.3216. I've also had to change the driver I'm using back to the default Windows (non-UASP) driver, as the ASUS UAS Storage Driver seems to be a bit buggy, but this hasn't changed the lack of health data. With the ASUS UAS Storage Driver, attempting to do a surface scan causes the drive to stop responding after completing ~5% (read speed drops to 0 in Task Manager, but the disk remains 100% active), and it'll never pass that point even after stopping and restarting the scan. Switching back to using the default Windows driver (USB Mass Storage Device) allows the entire disk to be scanned without problems.
