Samsung 970 Evo Plus Mac Pro late 2013

Hi,

 

This is about asking about a real Mac (I'll have another go at Hackintosh later)_late 2013 Mac Pro - & - The Samsung 970 Evo Plus - I got a 500 GB drive which does work if you are using High Sierra or higher and the new APFS file system for partitioning - So with this drive I didn't have many problems with the "adapter" to fit it to the MP 2013.

 

Also I got a 1 TB (same drive)_that I'm convinced does not have the correct firmware on as I've tried without success so there is a difference compared to the 500 GB drive that did work.

 

What is needed is a USB >> to nvme (M.2)_enclosure  that 100% works without any conditions.  OWC have something called "ENVOY" - Are there any other options?

 

Samsung use Magician software that I've tried on the PC test bench _(and new firmware ISO)_to create a USB bootable but this is where I'm a bit confused.

 

What is the best cheapest USB >> nvme M.2 converter to use with Mac? - And how would I exactly update the firmware on the 1 TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus SSD?

 

Simple steps would be best here - Any help with this appreciated - Thanks (to make the device discoverable)__

 

I can run any version of OS X / Mac OS - So with some assistance this should be OK to do (but the confusion)_has struck which isn't good - Thanks
