I got fumagician to run, but when scanning it is not detecting my drives. 

I have my nvme’s on an asus PCIe breakout board, so it is not detecting my SSDs. Is this possibly my problem? Or are my serial numbers not eligible for update? 


It's possible that your ASUS PCIe breakout board is not allowing Samsung Magician to detect your NVMe SSDs, especially if the board does not have its own NVMe controller or if the controller is not compatible with Samsung Magician.

  1. To troubleshoot the issue, you can try the following steps:
  2. Check if your NVMe SSDs are detected by the system BIOS. If they are not detected, then the issue may be with the PCIe breakout board or the NVMe SSDs themselves.
  3. Check if your NVMe SSDs are compatible with Samsung Magician by visiting the Samsung website and checking the list of compatible drives. If your SSDs are not listed, then they may not be eligible for firmware updates with Samsung Magician.

Try connecting the NVMe SSDs directly to the motherboard instead of using the PCIe breakout board. If they are detected, then the issue is likely with the PCIe breakout board.

If none of the above steps work, you may need to contact ASUS support or Samsung support for further assistance.


I would also triple check and make sure that the firmware selection you are making for your drive is correct.
