So back in may 2020 i bought this 1tb ssd. Adata su800 3d nand edition. At suggestion from a good friend who swore by it says he has a dozen in his work rigs. So i didnt open the box till about a week ago and i used it with a usb kit on my laptop to backup some data before i did a windows 8.1-->10 upgrade and full format. So i was able to save the data back and forth from the ssd via usb but after about 3 hours the usb disconnect chime popped up and the ssd was never to be recognized again. I have a second usb kit still no go tried diff sata cables nope. Tried poppin it into a spare ps4 to format it nope ps4 says cant access the storage. Key note hte sdd gets hot after a minute of being plugged in. Any tips that wont void any warranty that i could try to revive it? Amazon says its past their personal warranty period and im waiting back from the manufacture to see if i will get a replacement? Honestly the data on the hdd is a second backup that wont be missed so im not gung ho needing it to be zombied but what the hey ill like to try

Wait for the manufacturer to get back to you and use theirs.

Says 3 years. Bit short for a somewhat premium SSD but seemingly well within time limits.

Getting hot likely means something has shorted out inside it so no real option for fixing things, especially if you only want to replace it/get it working.

That's the problem with electronics, sometimes you just get very unlucky- sometimes there's a bad batch of products etc.
You can try talking to professional data recovery people about it (i.e for recovering your data and maybe even fixing the drive), but if the data was not to important then you're better off getting an RMA and buying a new drive.
