are you sure u used the 309 firmware? can you use the latest AS SSD version? I have 0309 on mine.

yes Sean ..sorry i was unclear.. working system just built using your awesome guide.. all was AOK... found my M4 to be running 002 firmware and trying to get her to 0309 has been a serious challenge..
just found a way and posted bench and process.. unplugging everything and having only the optical and the M4 on the same sata driver ports, only using one of the first 4 ports for the SSD... so choices are sata 0-3...0 and 1 are the sata 6gb ports so cant use those (per guide) was able to update to 009 (though i swear i had the 0309 firmware on the dvd)... MB is P8Z68-V pro/gen3...so the only way it worked was on first 2 sata light blue ports with nothing else hooked up and bios set to IDE

If you have 0309 installed it should say it.

redid the cabling etc and installed 0309...much easier the bazillionth time around.... got your zip of AS SSD and it is same as mine...there is an english .dll file piggybacking with the other .exe in the folder but i dont know where to put it and i launch to the german version again (says it is up to date )

First stop testing the drive lol. You don't need to test it anymore. Though your 4K reads dropped a lot forget about it for now, let the system just run like normal for a few weeks and then if you feel the need test it again. You don't need to worry about testing them all the time. Nor should you test them a lot. I think something just messed up in the program tho.

coolimundo... thanx... am buttoning up the system and getting onto doing some work with it for now ..am a photographer and cant wait to use it for its intended ...jamming through photoshop and huge image files ...sad note.. during this process i lost a removable HDD a buffalo external with a WD 1 Tb on it.. began clicking on other system then came back when i first plugged it into this system and now just stares at me.. i think i may have lost over 2wo yrs of images including weddings... trying data recovery progs from Hirams tool CD and others but so far its not being recognized...its an IDE HDD so i need to rebuild an older system or get adapter (IDE>Sata) to try to frankenstein it direct, though no power issues with this external, just sounds like a lost arm looking for that first mark on the TOC , figure my best chance at recovery is having it directly plugged into a system

OMG that is the worst feeling ever. I had the same thing happen to me last year. I lost all my info b/c my drive died .I didn't ever have a back up and my OS drive went out. I had no knowledge of the stuff I do now and now I have 4 backups of everything lol.

I hope you can get at least some data back. Maybe make a thread and someone may be able to help. I'm no that good at data recovery.
