Did I kill my Crucial M4 ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Drive info:

Crucial M4 128GB
Model:M4-CT128M4SSD2
OS: Windows 8 64bit (desktop)

I have attempted to upgrade my firmware from040H to 070H. I downloaded the updater from http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx amd started the upgrade.

However during the update the computer became extremely slow. I left it for 30 mins just in case it was doing something. After 30 mins I did a cold reboot, the computer wasn't answering anymore.

The computer booted up ok, however when I went to go and check the firmware version it was showing .. nothing ! The updater doesn't detect the SSD anymore. I also tried the "boot method" with the ISO CD, but the drive isn't detected either.

I was already in IDE mode in the bios when I tried to update the firnware.

Any idea ? redface.gif

Yes check on crucial forum.They have few guys there that know how to help.BUT i suggest you to stay with 0309 firmware.Its still the best firmware for M4.I tried all firmwares but i returned all three M4 to 0309.All firmwares after 0309 are worthless if you have stable system.How much i can remember firmware after 0309 was released just to support some SAS cards or something like that.Also 040H and 070H had problem with UEFI bios.

There is a method, called "power cycling". This will somehow reset the SSD. Google it or check the Crucial forums. I read it in the forums some time ago.
