COMRESET failed (errno=-16)
I’ve been having this error now (on and off) for over a year, the disk works fine but tends to throw an error every now and then, I am running Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 and the bug seems to be affecting Linux alone.
When contacting the manufacturer of the drive (silicon power) they suggested to update the firmware via a utility on the website, since it’s Windows only I had to remove Linux, install Windows to update, and then come back to Linux.
Since it started I’m backing up my data daily and creating images with parted magic every week, so far the disk hasn’t died on me (reached around 6400 hours, and the bug appeared in 4000 for the first time).
Do you have to replace the SSD right away?
From my experience, it’s not necessary to replace the drive right away, but backing up is a must!
I do recommend that you get the drive checked, and if possible send it back if it’s still under RMA.
Are you suffering from this issue too? What did you do to fix it? Please comment below.
