It's the most current Hard drive driver MS has and is for a SSD or SSD. I have a Crucial SSD and a Seagte HDD and both have the identical driver.

You may be thinking Firmware which is the driver for the SSD internal controller. If you hae Magician software installed it's easy to check from within the app.

OK thanks, I checked the firmware when I first got the ssd and it was already up to date thanks for clearing that up for me!

You're welcome. I don't think Samsung has issued new firmware for the 840 series drives, I have a Pro and EVO and nether have new ones.

I updated my 840 pro about about 8 months ago to the current fw. CrystalDisk lists it as DXM05B0Q.

I guess your 840 pro may use different firmware mine is DXT08B0Q.

I just checked in AS SSD and it gives the same firmware as Crystaldisk. The Samsung Magician still says that I am up to date. My drive is 128gb.
