Cable came loose ?
What motherboard are you using and which port is it connected to?
Typically if you've done nothing and this happens the drive has died. This could be from a variety of reasons but controller panic seems to be the most common especially with a sandforce drive. By chance was the drive subject to a rapid succession of power on and off before this happened?
1. Try a different power connector or verify the power connector on a different drive.
2. As above but for SATA. Confirm the SATA port is working.
3. Clear CMOS.
The steps above are just the basic fault finding you can do in this situation but I suspect the drive has died. By any chance was it one of your OCZ drives you were defending so valiantly not so long ago?
If it went to sleep and now doesn't show up, you have a 2% chance of getting it back by pulling it, letting it sit for awhile, then plugging it back in.
WHich SSD are you using??This can happen if the power supply is inconsistent. If you do not have UPS, I would say you have this configured and check again. Most of the modern controllers are very specific to accurate power inputs.
It's a very old vertex 2 60 GB in an office pc.
I guess I'll just RMA it.
Something that occasionally works is a power cycle. Unplug the SATA cable, turn on the computer, and regardless of whether or not it boots into anything, leave it on for 1/2 hour. Turn it off and repeat once more. This trick did help revive a finicky M4 drive I was using. By leaving the drive powered but unused, some controllers will run a TRIM command and a few other maintenance tasks. Even if the drive doesn't show in BIOS, it might still be alive, just not communicating. I don't know if the older drives will do this, but it's worth a shot before RMAing.
If your board comes with 2 SATA controllers you could try a port on the other controller. Try a different cable too, as Coup27 mentioned.
I don't see why you posted in here if you are unwilling to give us any more info.
Yeah its probably dead. My gfs 60gb vertex 2 literally just died also. I got a vertex 3 back from rma for it.
Not surprised it may be dead. The ocz drives are not so good. Except for the newer vertex models.
Last year when I rma'd my ocz drive it took them 1 week to get me a new drive back.
My condolences. Does OCZ have a power state reboot hmmmmmmmm. to jolt and awaken the drive or the memory controller gave out, most probably last. gl
