    Thank you very very much.
    Will update bootloader first.

    And i'm not really sure if i should put all on the ssd or just the Music files, cache and library.
    Because, when i screw up something in pcp or lms on sd i could just change rewrite the sd card and don't had to work something on the ssd itself?

    After boot pcp is working totally from RAM i was thinking? So it would only startup a little bit faster if all is on ssd and nothing else? Think i stay fir first on the safe and put pcp on the sd and not on ssd. Or is there another good reason?

    I don't need to change something for the fan or trim right? Pi4 is still under 40░C think this case is cooling fine in any way.

    Very happy with this combo. Nice, cute, fast little musicstation.

    One thing, i format the ssd on a win pc with exFat? or any other advice? Hope this works with the adapter and the bridge.
    Cross fingers.

    edit: Think it worked, i used a extension cable, uff it was very close that it fits. But it worked, i used gpt, ntfs, and now i was able to mount it in pcp/lms and moved cache and preferences. So i think i stay first with sdcard to boot and m.2 for all the data and cache. Or is there another very good point to move? Or to set or format something different?
    Fan is now just in standard (jaja passiert mir eher selten, schon klar, die art des stehens) settings mode, so it will start if it heats up? And Powerbutton will not work unless i do things from here. But i don't think or hope that i have to use the power button often.

    So thanks (und danke) again.

    If you want to boot from SD card, you have to use another bootloader configuration!

    The SATA controller inside the Argon case is still not using TRIM. I asked them but they don‘t want to work on this.
    I think it would be better to use the Argon script as described here and inside the piCorePlayer documentation because you can use the button of the case for switching completely of or reboot.

    If you want to write the music from the PC to the SSD exFAT would be the best choice. You have to install the exFaT driver in piCorePlayer afterwards.

    The fan will never be switched on when you don't use the scripts. And for LMS usage it is great to have the power button, because the system will be switched off correctly!

    Besides that, "standard" is written with "d" and not with "t", this is like it is in German too. .-)
    "Standart" in German language is the way of standing.

    I put the files via samba and network to the ssd, because i have only a usb2 cable at the moment.
    You think its much much better to format it now to exFat or should i stay at ntfs..

    Ok i will read the first post later again and hope i get it together. Thanks.

    edit: If standard is the only fault i made in English it would be a happy day for me

    What is the advantage of changing it to exFAT?

    I can not tell you. Maybe it is faster than NTFS?
    I am using here HFS+ because I sync the drive directly with my Mac Music-Mediathek. The drive is mounted as read only in piCorePlayer.

    The best option when you use the drive only on piCorePlayer would be ext4 I think.

    Argon M.2 firmware info and using jumper to enable fan

    So I have a bunch of these Argon M.2 cases. I ordered one from Amazon and 5 from BuyAPi.ca and the firmware versions are interesting. I am using the tool mentioned elsewhere to read (and potentially update) the firmware version. The one from Amazon has firmware version 141126a11d80 (or formatted as elsewhere: 141126_A1_1D_80 .) Three of the other five also have this version. All of the four report the same S/N 0000000000E3 . The other two have the old firmware mentioned above 140704_A1_00_00 and S/N 0000000000B6 .

    This clearly tells me that the S/N is not actually a serial number in the sense that whoever is programming or loading the firmware is not using the tool to increase the serial number for each unit they program. (Or maybe the tool is buggy, who knows.) I haven't yet investigated the features of the newer firmware version, which is different to the one listed above (being 141126_A1_EE_82 .) I do wonder if the EE_82 is a checksum, or a version number or feature map or what. EE_82 is clearly higher than 1D_80, so may still be worth updating, but I would like to figure out how to backup the 1D_80 firmware first. (I see mention of a tool for this ( https://github.com/smx-smx/ASMTool ), which I will have to try and get working.)

    One other piece of info for those of you wondering about the fan. There is a jumper on the top of the case (where the RPi is mounted, it's visible on the lower board in the one corner that is exposed (the writing on the board says 1-2 DEFAULT and 2-3 ALWAYS ON and its near the text IR_OUT). If you change this jumper from the initial [1-2] setting to [2-3] it will "disable" the power button (meaning when you apply power, the RPi will boot without you needing to press the power button), but it also will automatically enable the fan, without the need to run the Argon software. I don't know if turns the fan to 100% or not... it's audible to me, but not so loud as to be distracting.

    A few weeks ago I asked Argon40 if they will support TRIM in the future and they told me that they want do it. If this is what you want.

    I tried the tool at https://github.com/smx-smx/ASMTool following the instructions there on where to get the two .dll's. It compiled (on Windows, using VC 2022 preview) and ran fine, but couldn't find the device. It ran enumerating the entire bus or something, then fails saying it didn't find anything. I presume that means it is not part of the "ASM1x4x family" as noted on the GitHub page. According to Jeff Geerling's page ( https://www.jeffgeerling.com/blog/20...sd-case-review ) it's an ASmedia ASM1153E so that may make sense. Out of ideas now, except to just upgrade my old firmware and not worry too much about not having it to go back to.

    I just found this thread: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...71ba7#p1799280

    A few people write that this update is working with TRIM.

    How did you read out your firmware versions of the M.2 enclosure?

    Trim/unmap support is what you will get. It requires that udev rule.
