here is every detail the laptop is an Asus Tuff Dash F15, 11370h cpu, RTX3060 24GB ddr4 3200. 2TB Samsung Nvme, A-data SG 40 4TB Nvme. 3 Type A usb 3. one c port with thunderbolt 4 capabilities.one Ethernet gigabit port and wifi. installed both Samsung Magician and Adata toolbox. Samsung toolbox at least sees the drive but due to no sata won't update. the A-data ssd toolbox immediately exists saying no sata devices.. I emailed Asus Adata and Samsung heard nothing back ...... Oh yes Win 10 21h1 with all current drivers and updates. I don't see how the non drive, non sata stuff will in any way have any bearing on the issue.... But hey have at it .....PS there is no other drive ports on the machine....I even plugged in a UASP drive (USB Attached Scsi protocol) external usb 3 to usb trim enabled cable and a Sata use into a USB 3 port hoping that the scsi protocol would also be activated for the Nvme, Alas it still says no scsi device....Now prove to me that someone out there could do more that I already did and make it work...no you havent. give the make and exact model if you want anyone to attempt to help. pretty sure youve been told that multiple times.

is the bios up to date and have you loaded the VMD drivers from the support page?516pm
I have the latest bios and according to the My Asus app the laptop is fully up to date Asus even installs new bios through windows update...automatically.is the bios up to date and have you loaded the VMD drivers from the support page?
its part of your chipset and was just a suggestion as it adds more nvme functionality. just like last time, youre probably either going to have to accept laptop limitations and not update, or stick it in you tower to update.From what I read at this site I don't understand how this VMD even relates to my issue seems only for Intel ssd hardware..https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19356/28288/intel-volume-management-device-intel-vmd-esxi-tools.html
KInd of get what you said but I don't see Intel allowing a third party ssd to work.... I do have MY Aorus laptop which has 2 nVme and a SATA PORT.... Guess if I need to will just do it the hard way....by the way thanks for the help....its part of your chipset and was just a suggestion as it adds more nvme functionality. just like last time, youre probably either going to have to accept laptop limitations and not update, or stick it in you tower to update.
