Firmware Upgrade FTM32GX25H

Postby rmcknt » Fri Jul 20, 2012 9:18 am

Howdy, I am trying to upgrade my FTM32GX25H to the latest firmware version. I already downloaded the latest MP Tool and read the PDF Guide.

Things I have done:
Shut down PC
unplugged ssd
soved switch on ssd to factory setting
boot pc into windows
connect ssd (first power, then sata)
start mp tool
insert data (Firmware Version 2142, Model FTM32GX25H, Serial P595113-EFBX-B029037)
switched to tab Flash and clicked 'refresh'

But MP Tool does not show my SSD. I run MP Tool as Administrator and UAC is off.

Can you help me? If you need further information please tell me and I will provide them.

Some of mother boards are not supporting the MP TOOL software.
Please provide me with the following information:
1. Mother board model name
2. OS
3. BIOS seeting - AHCI mode or IDE mode?

Thanks,
James

Hallo James,

The motherboard is a ASUS P8P67 Rev3.1, SATA Ports are set to AHCI, and I am running Windows7 64. I also dual-boot into a Gentoo Linux system, if you have flash tools for linux available.

Your board should not have any problem.
Win7-64 and AHCI mode.

Please make sure your SSD is connected to SATA 2 port. Not SATA 3 port.
Your SSD Flash Selection is K9GAG08U0M 32GB.

Hello James,

the SSD was already connected to a SATA2 Port - but sill no lock with the Windows Flash tool. So in a desperate move I tried flashing with the ISO boot CD, and it worked without a flaw. Not sure why it did not work under Windows though.

While browsing the SuperTalent forums to find a solution I read about the 2030 firmware which could wear out SSD very quickly, and I sadly realized I had this firmware version running before upgrading. So I just checked the SMART attributes.

Code: Select all

As you can see, under 209 Remaining_Lifetime_Perc it says my SSD has only 20% life left. Are these numbers reliable? Is my SSD about to fail soon?

Your interpretation is correct.
That is why we strongly recommand our customers to use FW2142.
Please use MP TOOL. Not use ISO updater.
Thanks,
James
