  • Dead Falcon II

    I have a Falcon II FM-25S2I-64GBF2. It had firmware 2030 on it and was running fine.
    The other day, the SSD stopped being recognised in BIOS and I'm assuming I've lost all my data.

    If I put the jumoer on the SSD and boot, the laptop recognises the drive (as a 128Gb) but can't do anything with it. As soon as I remove the jumper, it's back to being unrecognised.

    I've tried formatting and updating the firmware again , but I just can't get the disk recognised without the jumper attached. I can't even boot from CD if the SSD is present without the jumper. I've tried various combinations with IDE and AHCI set.

    The same applies if I connect it as an external USB drive - it's not recognised with no jumper, and recognised as a 128Gb drive that can't be initialised with the jumper on.

    Please advise:
    1. How can I tell if the SSD is totally dead?
    2. If it's not dead, what are the steps to get it working again?

    Please try the firmware 1916 with clean function, clean the SSD first, and then re-install 1916

    If these steps doesn't work, please contact our RMA department for replacement.

      I have tried 1916 and couldn't get it to work (there are so many versions though and I don't know if I used the right one.).

      The drive is probably around 3 years old - is RMA still available?

        Use the clean function first, then re-install 1916:

        As i know, the Falcon series is two year warantee, please note!
