drevos site only has a data migration tool.......no firmware updates as far as i can see.
the format has worked and the drive is usable again......ive reinstalled windows and all seems ok so far. just going through the laborious task of reinstalling everything.......hopefully it wont spag out again but who knows.
Can you post SMART data of the drive? Also did you install proper SATA/AHCI driver for your mobo? I have noticed that sometimes some SSDs do not work well with inbox MS AHCI drivers and they are more reliable with Intel or AMD AHCI drivers.
however it did show up an amber warning(relocated sectros count) about one of my two hdd i have in a windows raid0 array..... i only use this drive for storage and some programs.
other than this it appears to be ok. but knowing my luck its that thats the problem
the correct drivers for my mobo are installed.
i have reluctantly started testing with a regular 80gb hdd as my main OS disk to see if the errors replicate. its painfully slow.....if the same errors don't happen i know it was the ssd if they do happen i can have a look at my "dodgey" hdd array and see if thats ruining my day :s
