Drivers for my Adata S599 SSD?

Anyone know where I can get drivers for my SSD? It's this one: Newegg.com - A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 2.5" 64GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I have a screen shot of the drivers that Microsoft installed, but those can't be my best choice. And Adata hasn't responded to my emails.

Hello there, i guess this screenshot says it all



I guess there is not a driver available, you have to use the windows' generic ones!

There's not even a Firmware available on the website

yeah, i noticed that. I was hoping someone maybe knew if I could/should use the drivers from a different SSD?

Or should I not be bothered by this and leave it alone? A friend on another forum said it was no big deal, just leave it alone.

Yeah, if i were you, i wouldn't try to fix what ain't broke yet.. Windows Drivers are OK, i personally think you'd get a lot more difference with a Firmware Update than a driver update... but since there aren't Firmware updates on the ADATA website, there's nothing you can do, by now...

Just sit, relax, and enjoy your SSD

That driver you are using is perfectly fine.

Although if you haven't - update your storage controller to the latest:

Intel® Rapid Storage Technology

Usually you do not need a special driver for a SSD. They work off the vanilla disk interface - either IDE or AHCI.

Yup, using Intel's latest drivers for AHCI and loving it!
