Windows 7: ATTENTION Crucial M4 SSD owners

Prof, I don't know the official answer to that. Britton30 said he used the same ISO for both his 64GB and 128GB and I used 2 ISOs one for each. As far as I know, neither one of us had a problem, so my guess would be that they are the same. But again, I don't know and didn't see that question asked on the Crucial forums.

Edit: no matter which ISO you use, it will show both drives as being updatable.

Same ISO/firmware for the M4 range, regardless of size.

So, you're saying I did it the hard way? Not much unusual about that.

Compare the files with a sync tool and you should know.

Crucial.com Product Downloads - Firmware Updates

Release notes say you can update from 0001, 0002 or 0009
I have both the 64GB and 128GB versions and downloaded both. I see that they are the exact same size down to the last byte. Is there a difference, or can I use one disc for both drives?
If you're really curious just open a command prompt and go the directory they live in
>comp file64 file128

It will do a binary file comparison.

I thought I'd use my laptop as the guinea pig since I figured it would be better to brick the 64GB drive rather than the 128GB one. It wouldn't detect it.

Time for a little experimentation.

Fortunately, my laptop's BIOS allowed me to change from AHCI to IDE, which did the trick. One down, three to go.

But AHCI works too. I had no problems because my Dell does not even come with the IDE option.
