How To Get Your M.2 SSD To Work Flawlessly In Your Steam Deck

How To Get Your M.2 SSD To Work Flawlessly In Your Steam Deck

Hello, everybody!

Let us begin by saying we are humbled and overwhelmed about the reception of our latest Docking Station, the HB0604 dock that allows you to add an external M.2 SSD storage unit to further expand your Steam’s library when playing on a big screen.

We can’t wait for you to have them and start sharing your experience with them. But in the meantime, we wanted to let you know about a potential issue when playing with your Steam Deck in a docking station with a M.2 SSD storage unit installed.

As most of you already know, the Steam Deck doesn’t run Windows 11 but Steam OS, an operating system based on Linux. We have discovered that the Deck didn’t automatically recognize external SSD units when booting up, forcing users to start their Decks in desktop mode every time they wanted to play.

You already know that at JSAUX we not only strive to give you the best possible hardware but also the best experience. After identifying this issue, we have found a way to solve this problem so you can have a smooth experience when playing your games via the Docking Station. After all, first impressions matter and we wanted to save you the inconvenience of having to type code on your Deck to be able to enjoy your brand new SSD unit.

Take a look at this Github link (our gratitude and a shout out to @scawp for arranging everything!) where you will find all the information you need. You also have a video tutorial that should make this process even easier.

Please keep in mind that our developers have made some minor adjustments based on @scawp's script. It implements all this better. Now you can click on the link to download and use our latest script.

It simplifies some steps and enables hot-swapping of SSDs, so that even if you remove the SSD, you don't have to go into desktop mode again when installing the SSD again.

However, if you have any doubts or questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via our social media @jsauxsupport

As we said, the wait is almost over and with this small fix we are more than confident that you will get the best experience on your Steam Deck and JSAUX hardware.
