New motherboard is better with a fresh install instead of trying to update old drivers IMO

did that. been checking around it looks like Samsung magician has a tendency to ignore some drives specially newer ones.

I think the problem is the cable itself, think it's a sata 2. problem is finding asata 3. going hunting right now,, see if there's a computer repair shop open.

I'm guessing that you updated Samsung Magician software to latest version?

There's no difference between SATA1, SATA 2 and SATA3 cables other than the locking clip. The data transfer rates are identical.

then i have no explation why when i connected it to the only sata 3 cable i have data transfer rate hit max.

Old cables can loose their transfering capacity if they oxidize or are tightly bent. I once had a record player that lost the other channel after a couple of years. I changed the cable and in a couple of years the same happened. The cable was of the cheap looking black RCA type and it broke inside the box where it was bent into a tight S between poles that served as a strain relief.

Over the years I have used Laplink PCMover  to clone old machines to new machines. I even cloned Windows 7 Pro machines to Windows 10 Pro machines. It allows you to chose what programs and files to move. It gives you reports on what will move successfully, what might have issues, and what will not move successfully. It works great. I have never had a clone fail using that software.

It works with direct link or over wifi.

you are right, maybe, doesnt matter.  removed both cables I have owned for maybe 7 years, installed a new sata3 and I get full speed on my new ssd.
