SSD getting kicked

Postby DragonFury » Wed May 16, 2012 11:40 am

Here is my issue, I am currently running a Crucial M4 128 Gig SSD SATA 6gb/s on a P8p67 EVO motherboard on the SATA 6GB/s controller (Intel one). Now the issue is this, my computer stops recognizing the SSD, like the SSD gets turned off. And it requires me to turn off the computer unplug the SATA Cable plug it back in and everything fine, until the computer decides to not recognize the SSD. The OS is installed onto the SSD. what would be causing this issue? Last time this happened it turned out the SSD needed to be replaced.

The SSD firmware update should fix that. Let me know if it doesn't and I'll ping Crucial for you.

Well found out I had more time on my hands then I originally thought, well of course I had to set my brain back a week (I thought it was the 24th not the 17th). So I flashed the Firmware of the SSD to 000f from 0009 (I tired the 003x one and could never get it to stick so I gave up) time will only tell if it works.

Keep an eye out on future updates though. They have a good number of them and they usually include Flash enhancements for performance and longevity.
