I just bought a 520 series 120Gb ssd, I installed the Intel SSD Toolbox, which recognizes my ssd, but the option to optimize the drive (trim) is greyed out. I have a Penryn 1600 SLi motherboard, which doesn't support AHCI, so it's in IDE mode.
I have win 7 x64, fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify gives me a 0 value, but trimmcheck says that trim is not working. So i assume, that trim is not working.
In device manager the ssd is recognized as an SCSI device. Could that be the problem?
What can i do?
i have found the problem, after hours of googling, and forum search. the main problem was, that my storage controllers were the nvidia storage controllers (from my chipset). I replaced the OEM (nvidia) SATA drivers with standard windows IDE drivers, restarted the pc, and hallellujah, optimizer is working, trimcheck says trim is working.
the answer to my questionis here:
