Thanks for the heads up! It looks like my Samsung Magician software updated automatically.

I've tried everything but it still won't work on one of my computer's AMD chipset. Any help? I've done everything the Samsung manual says.

Read this Anandtech page, it mentions you may need to uninstall AMD drivers which replaces them with Windows drivers. If you have already done that, sorry, someone more knowledgeable than me will have to help. Remember it's Windows only at the mo', and you NEED that free space on the drive.

I tried that. I'll wait for the ISO tool to come out later this month.

I kinda like Samsung for doing this. With their Pro line as well as the 850 pro's release, I assumed they were gonna lessen the support for the previous lineup of products they released. The part that they acknowledge it and made a fix deserves an applause.

Sometimes I wish they venture off with building other stuff like RAM (again), a full-on motherboard, and maybe a full-on GPU that competes against Nvidia and AMD. So far, they've done a fair lot of things for the sake of customer satisfaction.
