    Doesn't update

    When I have SSD Update open, after I click on Download Firmware to Selected Drive and it says Download firmware complete, and I click on the Refresh Driver List, when my SSD comes back up, it does not show the newly updated firmware, just the same firmware I used before... Did it even update?

    question...

    So from what I understand I must reset my hard drives to upgrade my firmware? I have 2 x 120 phoenix pro's in Raid 0. In windows the flash program doesnt detect my drives then in dos it forces me to reset the drive. No other option so I dont have to go through the back up process?

    I have a Phoenix Pro 120gb. Now i want to upgrade to 4.2 firmware. I run the original Firmware update tool from the boot image, but it cannot detect my drive
    I use Windows 7 SP1, Microsoft AHCI driver, and set HDD mode in BIOS to AHCI
    I'm using the Dell Latitude E6410 with intel core i5
    What can I do now?

    K...thanks for the clarification...

    I was able to flash to 1916 using the boot disk and a jumper on the SSD. Had to use the boot disk because I could find no way to get the SSD listed as "Disk 0" without removing the IDE drives that contained my cloned OS that I was hoping to use to boot the system with.

    Staying away from 2030 as acording to other posts in this forum there seem to be stability issues with it.

    Which is it...AHCI or IDE?

    And there is no mention of installing the jumper on the drive...I do need to install the jumper to upgrade firmware right?
    FALCON = IDE Mode
    Firmware ver = 1916 or Clean function ...need use jumper
    Firmware ver = 2030 ...not need jumper

    I had the same experience but if you skip the virus scan thing the file downloads...and actually works...or at least worked for me!

    (and after only 4 days of reading/re-reading/deciphering the posts in this forum)

    This procedure doesn't work on a 2011 Macbook Pro for Falcon II

    Just tried to use this procedure and all goes well until the step for upgrading the firmware.
    - The boot CD works fine. Macbook Pro boots Windows fine
    - The Diskpart and List Disk works fine
    - Clean command succeeds
    - Unzipped the firmware onto a USB drive and inserted into Macbook
    - The firmware shows fine as C: disk
    - The file 128GB_1.exe doesn't run giving the "...not supported on this platform"
    - And the 128GB_2.exe starts to upgrade but then stops with errors with the last one being "...no response from disk" or something similar

    I tried to use this process on a Dell XPS 720, then with other Dell machines. I finally found an HP that had the BIOs settings for AHCI and everything worked like magic. I'm sure there is a workaround for it with the XPS, but it was much easier this way.
