        We have been contacted by users with SSD issues after using the firmware upgrade tool (version 1.3) in a Windows 7* 64bit environment. 

        .. AND...

        No related issues have been reported by users who have successfully upgraded to 02HA firmware via the firmware upgrade tool (version 1.3)."


        This is not at all clear. I am glad they were able to reproduce the problem, but, according to the poll, on this forum, it is not limited to Win7 64bit (one 32 bit user and one Linux user reported dead drives).

         

        This was posted late yesterday evening. Perhaps this forum thread motivated someone.

          The problems after the firmware update have absolutely nothing to do with the installed operating system, even several brand-new SSDs are affected, as you can read in the poll.

            Actually Jim has changed the text a couple of times.  I'm not sure it mentioned Win7 at all the first time, and suggested you just not update to the latest FW until they said it was cool.  The first version I saw asked people to keep posting on the Poll thread.  Not sure why he removed that comment.

              I don't understand the new statement either.

               

              In my case, the issues are surely not related only to Windows 7 x64, because I tried also with Vista and Ubuntu getting the same results: after some reboots or a shutdown I get the "not a system disk" error.

               

              I don't know if you noticed, but now also the SSD Toolbox (version 1.1, dated 2009/11/05) is unavailable.

                I don't see what the issue is with the toolbox, it doesn't even do anything unless you have the new firmware, otherwise it just displays some info. Unless they are about to release a new firmware and new toolbox compatible with the new firmware... might be right around the corner. Dammit, now I'm speculating!!!

                  The thing is, with these drives, they just decide to brick themselves and you can't get the data.

                   

                  You may have working ones today -but not tomorrow. This is why you need to be conerned now.

                   

                  One word: Backup.
