If this is not working make sure your SATA is set to IDE mode in the BIOS.

Thanks for you reply. Yes, I had tried that, but I went back just to be sure and did it again to no avail. This prompt comes after the blue screen where you choose option one. I have my storage configuration set to IDE. Am I using the right HDAT2? I used the first one in the downloads section of the hdat2 download section (CD Boot image, all programs, drivers and manuals).

UPDATE

ENTERPRISE, Telnet, you guys are totally awesome. Turns out, there must have been an error on the first HDAT2 boot disc I burned using Active@ ISO burner. I used CDBurnerXP to burn the image, rebooted, and it worked perfectly. Thanks so much!

Success!

On my 3rd attempt to flash the new firmware, I was successful.

For those following along at home:

MSI 785GM-E65 (AMD mobo) = fail
ASUS A8N5X (AMD mobo) = fail
HP Compaq nx9420 Laptop (Intel) = success

Thanks again Enterprise and Telnet!

Typical innit?

Seems like Intel don't like playing with the other kids.

Welcome to the club of successful updaters. Feels good doesn't it?

Hey man that's great news. I only ever use CDBURNERXP as for me it has always worked wonders, I am glad it has worked for you also

Glad you got it working. It is such a pitty though that the Updater is so darn picky.

hey guys. i was hoping you could help me a bit. i was under the impression all the V series drives use the intel chip. i am thinking no right now.

i have the SNV125-S2, firmware B090522a. when i run iSSDFUT it tells me i have a pre-release BIOS. considering the string is NOTHING like what should be, i'm guessing this isnt going to work.

is there a fix, or am i just SOL?

Judging by the firmware version number your drive is the 64gb version. This and the 128gb version use JMicron controller and are unfortunately not compatible with this fix. Only the 40gb version is based on the Intel controller.

Yeah sorry. Those drives use a non Intel controller and as such this firmware fix could never work with those drives. HOWEVER some have reported that just using HDAT2 to restore the default configuration of there firmware has resulted in TRIM being enabled. You COULD try giving that a go. However no promises that will work as the stock firmware on your SSD needs to be TRIM capable in the first place.
