My new SSD randomly fails and when this happens and I do a reset, the BIOS don't lists the SSD any more. So I need to do poweroff/poweron to get it working again. I try with other SATA wires, and in different SATA connectors of the MBO. And I did a MRA with a previous SSD of the same model that had the same problem.
I have firmware 540ABBFO (5.0.4? WTF!) with signature ended in "29264", my MBO is a Gigabyte 970A-D3 (SATA 3 capable), and the ACHI mode is active. O.S. is Windows 8.1 Pro x64 and Ubuntu 14.04 x64
I try to update the firmware of my new Chronos 90G.
The update tool, see the SSD hard disk, and allow me to update it, when I do, does nothing. I don't get any message of error or success, only that a red X is over the hard disk icon, and the firmware revision keeps being 540ABBFO. Also I'm using M$ AHCI driver.
Nope, but I don't install the OS on it yet, I simply format it with NTFS, copy a film in blue ray quality, and begin to watch it. Sometime before, the video fails, and Windows Explorer hangs. I can do other things, or reboot the machine in a normal way. Similar situation on Linux MushkinSean wrote:
How often is this happening, daily, once a week?
I could say that on daily... It's very random, sometimes I could reproduce it in a few hours, or I need to wait a few days.
I can't force to happen doing massive write on it, but If I do a continuous long and steady read (like playing a movie) happens with more frequency. MushkinSean wrote:
540 is the latest firmware for your drive, you do not need to update.
Good to know it. MushkinSean wrote:
Are there any BIOS updates for the mobo?
have you tried the AMD AHCI driver?
BIOS was updated to the latest available version, and it happens with Linux and Windows, both with BIOS in AHCI and IDE modes.
