Windows 7: Can't update firmware on ADATA S510 SSD

Can't update firmware on ADATA S510 SSD

I have an ADATA S510 120gig SSD, i tried downloading the Firmware upgrade tool seen on this page

S510 SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive, Download, S510, 500 Series, Solid State Drive, Welcome to ADATA

I opened the tool and it didnt find my SSD drive. I then downloaded the file itself to try and manually install it but it is a "VIC" file, i dont even know how to open it.

Does anyone have experience with updating their firmware on these SSD drives? What am i doing wrong?

edit: after digging around on my machine i found that i have firmware 3.3.2 which is apparently the latest firmware out there right now (i didnt know that till i just found this info out, this machine is 2 weeks old)

same to me - fixed

I started my PC with a Linux live DVD (Knoppix) because my ADATA S510 SSD Device is my boot device and device with OS (Windows 7).
So I run the Linux version of the updater (you must be root!) and all worked fine!
But: please check the signature (for example 22739) - it has to be in the filename of the firmware update!
Good luck

PS: my drive was not it is! I hope my problems (bluescreen) are gone now!

It didn't find my drive either. Seems like there are 2 ways to solve this:

1. Restart in safe mode (Start, Shut down, Restart, press F8, select Safe Mode). That worked for me.
2. Copy the Adata files to the root and try again. Didn't try that but others confirmed it worked for them.
