Thanks for your attention, but no....

Hard Disk Sentinel detects the total amount of addressable sectors and the sector size and calculates the capacity based on these values.
If the SSD (or the chipset?) may report zero for one (or both) of these values, then the total capacity seems 0 MB, as you can see.

Never saw similar with any NVMe SSD / configuration, so must be something related to this particular situation.

Can you please use this command:

./hdsentinel -enabletest -txt -r report.txt

as it creates a testmode.txt with the detection steps performed and should create a report.txt file too.

If you can send these files, it is possible to check the results and examine the situation, verify what could be wrong and what workaround / change is possible.
These reports always help in future development too.
