Thank you for contacting our support community. We understand your situation regarding the Intel® SSD DC P3520 Series.
Based on the logs provided, we found that you are running an old firmware version for the SSD(MDV10271) we recommend you to try to update it to the latest version(MVD10290) in order to attempt to fix the issue because we have seen reports that with the Firmware update this situation was fixed.
Please follow the next steps:
1- Make sure you are running the latest Intel® SSD Data Center Tool version.
2- Please issue the following command:
isdct.exe load -intelssd 0 or you can run isdct.exe load -f -intelssd 0
The information is located in the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool user guide that is in the download file of the tool. Section 126.96.36.199.1 or 188.8.131.52.
If the situation remains, we recommend you to contact your local support team in order to get further assistance.
Thank you for your response and for reading the log file. Sadly neither the SSD Toolbox nor isdct is able to update the firmware:
PS C:\isdct> .\isdct.exe load -f -intelssd 0
- Intel SSD DC P3520 Series CVPF724500941P2JGN -
Status : Selected drive is in a disable logical state.
I have tried the Firmware Update ISO as well and it always states that "No Intel devices were found" and wants to reboot with the next keyboard input.
Is there any chance to force the update although the device is in a "disable logical state"? I wouldn't ask if it's not important and I doubt very much that my local support can help with this. They will just throw it away and replace it with a new one.
