MSFS stuck decompressing. Possible fix for Samsung 980 Pro NVMe users

Hi all,

Hopefully this is in the right section.

I had an issue with MSFS decompressing after a reinstall where it would get stuck decompressing on the first file. This was after a fresh install of W11.
After trying everything I could on my end I reached out to support (side note… MSFS support Teemu was great, a credit to Asobo/MSFS). We tried everything and nothing was working.
Turns out there is an issue with the 980 Pro firmware I was using. This is also publicised on various media so even if you’re not having issues, I’d recommend updating.

If you’re having the same problem and you are a 980 Pro user, try updating your firmware.
To do this you’ll need to have Samsungs SSD Magician Software.
