Might as well experiment with alternate grounding methods. Wrap a wire around it and attach it to the case. If that doesn't work, see if getting it in contact with one of the ports does.
I hooked up a ground wire and tried grounding all over the case and putting it in contact with the usb ports, but it didn't seem to help. Anything else I can try?
I'm thinking of returning it since it is a new drive. Do you think it is a problem with the SSD itself or my system? My HDD isn't having any problems.
