Just wondered if anyone had experienced anything similar to this and what might be the cause? There must have been flames and quite a bit of heat as there were scortching marks in the case and on screws.
I have 2 of the these drives ADATA 480GB SSD in a Windows Server. both have burn marks on the power connectors. I contacted ADATA who says it's not covered under warranty, could it be caused by the power supply or the power connector?
I've replaced the power supply in the server (Although it worked fine and other drives were fine). Tested the SSD's and surprisingly both drives still work (after removing the burnt plastic), but I'm guessing it's too risky to reuse them? The drives cost £160 each and I don't really want to bin them.
All parts in the server are under 2 years old, which part is at fault do you think? and am I likely to get anywhere under warranty?
