So I got my new Samsung 840 pro today and decided I would first update the firmware on it before I installed windows on it. I plugged it in via external USB drive and windows detected it, I formatted and created a partition (probably not necessary) then I ran Samsung Magician.
It scanned and said: Magician was unable to find a Samsung SSD connected to your system. Some Magician functions may not work correctly.
Wtf? In the dropdown menu on top, I see all my drives including "Samsung SSD 840 Series USB Device" - is this a retarded magician?
