Is there any way of doing this but in a Kingston Vseries 64gb?

I have not tested it. However doubt it as your SSD does not contain an Intel Controller. Its Jmicron

just want to thank you guys for getting to trim to work on this drive! i now have the firmware flashed, and trim is enabled, but i am unable to get the intel toolbox to run. i followed your guide and used the hex editor, and everything seemed to take fine. however, when i run the intel toolbox program, it says "error connecting to drive". any ideas? thanks again!

Have you tried Re-installing the Intel Toolbox?
post #15 of 120
First... Thanks to All who put this workaround together!

I have the same result as Veedo just above. "error connecting to drive" in the SSD Toolbox. I read all the entire forum thread again and finally ran into this post. So I removed the SSD Toolbox, reboot and re-installed with the same result 'error connecting to drive'.

Procedure: (Before re-installing SSD Toolbox)

Did the entire workaround by the 'book' on my Kingston 40gig SSD and confirmed the enabled Trim. This was on the raw drive i.e. before installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

After installing the OS I did the original install of the SSD Toolbox. Then
ran it and got the drive connect error above. Then I removed it and re-installed.

I also have a 300 gig spindle HD which shows up in the SSD Toolbox 'Select Drive'
window in disabled gray with the same drive connect error.

Probably something simple. Hope this helps. BTW I bought my SSD after seeing the
Trim Workaround, guess I just like stuff like this.

Hello,
I have the same problem: "error connecting to drive". I successfully followed all steps with DCO restore via Linux Slax & hdparm (because of Gigabyte MB). According to Crystal DiskInfo, TRIM seems to be activated, but I still have this error in Intel SSD Toolbox.

Any idea ?

btw. thanks all of you (especially Telnet & ENTERPRISE) for your support ;-)

Some people having this problem, especially nVidia people, have been successful in fixing this by using the default Microsoft drivers.

It's also worth pointing out that TRIM only works with the default Microsoft drivers - if you're using anything else, then all of this is pointless

Updated the guide to include a pre-modified Exe that you can simply use to replace your stock Intel.Exe file.

At least the Intel drivers should work ok with SSD Toolbox too. If you want to use the automatic TRIM in W7 then you should use the Microsoft drivers, but some people still use Vista or XP and don't have this option anyway.
