Well, I am wondering whether to take the plunge.

I have an 80 gig 320 series with NO issues.

My rational mind tells me if it ain't broke, don't even attempt to fix it.

Yet--the firmware update is supposed to be non-destructive.

So, being half a fool, I will probably try it in short order. I've got a recent image of C anyway, so why not live dangerously.

I just updated my X25-M and the tool said I already had the latest firmware.

Mine is working fine. I haven't read the fine print but if like Crucial if a firmware update bricks the SSD the warranty is void.
Great big letters on the Crucial firmware download page.

We will see.

I just ran the update.

No issues.

Firmware before: 4pc10302

Firmware after: 4pc10362

Downloaded the ISO, burned it to disk with ImgBurn, and booted from the disk. Took no more than a minute and I got a success message.

I confirmed the new firmware in Intel SSD Toolbox.

Same as a bios update for your MB. Live on the edge.

Done. 4PC10362 showing in Tool Box.

Much easier than most MB Bios updates.
The longest time spent on it was remembering how to use the burn software. LOL
I only use it once every couple of months.

Hello all,

i want to share my HP elitebook 8460p with SSD 320 series problems.

Hard drive Specifications :
1. Model Number : INTEL SSDSA2BW160G3H
2. Model SERIES : INTEL SSD 320 SERIES 160 GB (show as 8 MB in intel SSD toolbox)
3. Serial Number : BAD_CTX 0000013F (shown in intel SSD toolbox)
4. Firmware : 4PC10365

PROBLEMS :

1. Bluescreen error in windows vista enterprise 32 bit after automatic update in my company.

2. After restarting the notebook i got the following message in the startup "REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE". My windows wouldn't even start.

3. I connect my SSD into another computer as secondary drive and boot to the windows. Check in the disk management, i found my harddrive is only 8 MB. Many of the forum called this "8 MB BUG". Note : my SSD harddrive is not shown in my computer.

SOLUTIONS TRIED :

1. HP software & driver : I downloaded "Intel Solid State Drive (SSD) Firmware Update" on website "HP EliteBook 8460p Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center" and trying to do install SP52887 directly from windows and it says "setup status : this harddrive model is not supported : ST380013AS" which is my first harddrive (not the SD). The most updated firmware, i try to install SP5508 and it says "update status : This harddisk model is not supported". SP52887 installer is also comes with disk images to update firmware from boot process, i also do this and it says "your harddrive is having the latest firmware, no upgrade is needed". So, i think i have no luck with HP software & driver.

2. Intel SSD toolbox : I downloaded Intel SSD toolbox from website "http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...55&lang=eng%20" and i cannot update to the latest firmware because of i have the latest firmware already. The only thing left is "SECURE ERASE" and it's the last thing i want to do because it will delete all the data in the SSD hard drive.

QUESTIONS :

Anybody know how to fix SSD 320 series harddrive without secure erase it ?
