  • Inspired by this post, today I finally found the zeig to install the components:

    Hi, here's some info up front:

    The SSD would be the Transcend TS64GMSA230S 3D TLC with associated adapter: Delock 62495.

    I made a 1:1 clone with the ICYBOX "harddisk toaster".

    But had to remove the case, because the disk with the adapter did not fit into the slot.

    So briefly summarized:

    Remove the PCM, open the cover of the harddisk compartment, take out the harddisk, clone it, put in the new one, have fun. ;)

    Now for the next few years this should not become a construction site.

  • As a tip: still make sure that the SSD is properly screwed / fastened in the adapter and the adapter is properly fastened in the PCM, otherwise the joy will not last very long.

  • I've already done it twice.

    It's really not witchcraft.

    The PCMs have been running without any problems ever since.

  • ...thanks for the encouraging Fred :thumbup-alternative:, stupid question: Your PCM is version 3.0, right?

  • Hello Stefan,

    my PCM always starts and goes off again after two minutes. Then restart again.

    I also think that I need a new hard disk.

    You wrote that it's not rocket science.

    Is it really that easy? and if so, would you have any "more detailed" instructions?

    And what kind of adapter is the one with both hard disks in it?

  • Hello moh,

    do you have PCM 2.1 or 3.0?

    PCM 2.1 has the effect that it keeps restarting. I had the same problem. I was able to solve the problem by de-energizing the device for a while. This is described somewhere in the forum (some memory that is supposed to clear itself when switched off is supposedly full).

    The problem has not recurred since then.

    It's definitely worth a try as it's no effort at all.

  • It sounds as if the 'ancient' IDE-FP (or the controller) is breaking down, there are companies on the net (e.g. http://navi-24.de/porsche.html) that repair this (for approx. 4-500€). ...or wait until the beginning of 2025 when a PCCM+ for generation 3.0 ff. will probably be released.
