Ultra Drive "Firmware download Error"

All firmware upgrade issues should go here

Postby User_P587376 » Thu Dec 27, 2012 10:33 am

Hello, i have also a SuperTalent GX2 drive that wont be update with the AutoDedect fiunktion in the MP-Tool :(

its a STT-FTM64GX25H
serial: P587376-GDBX-9309019


When i click "Start" in the MPTool, it works for a minute ant then i become a fail in Status and Firmware, and in details it says:
Mode : FIRMWARE CHECK
Status : FAIL
------ Detail ------
The mptool could not find a firmware


i would like to update the Firmware with my other PC, so that drive is on the second Sata Port (IntelICH9), and it set to AHCI in Mainboard Bios - can it work so?


i have also alot of UltraDMA CRC erros in HD Tach 5 with this drive *confused*
problem is, my notebook where this Ultradrive is build in, is running Windows7, and sometimes windows wont start and i must repair windows :(

Your SSD Flash selection is K9LBG08U0M 64GB.
Please download the MP TOOL FW2142 and run it on your PC. AHCI mode at ICH9 will work.
Let me know if you have any problem.

no luck :(

i have check out my Motherboard, its not the ICH9, its a Intel H55 chipset (set to AHCI).

but i have problems with flashing this d*mn drive -.-

1. time i would like to flash it says wrong sdram size, ok, so i switch in Bios from AHCI to IDE mode, MPTool is now starting directly when i hit the icon (on AHCI, it need about 30 seconds to start), when i would like to flash it begans, the DosBox appears and then my system will freeze, i have test it 2 times, both times it will freeze. ok, so i will it set to AHCI back in bios.

I flash it again, and now in the DosBox that will apear it say that some blocks are damaged :shock:
ok, i shut down my system, and restart. Flashing again and a other message will apear, in the DosBox it work longer and do somthing, but manny erros, and at end, it will say:

Mode : FLASH Check
Status : FAIL
------ Detail ------
Scan for initial bad blocks
Too many bad blocks in Bank 6=C1 Chip U13 / U14
8171 bad blocks = 99.74% in low chip U13
8174 bad blocks = 99.78% in high chip U14


whats wrong with my device? :(

When the Factory Switch is set Normal, it will dedect a 64GB device - thats right. And in the Factory switch setting (to flash this thing) it will dedect a 128GB YATAPDONG-BAREFOOD-ROM device....128GB :?:

OK... got it.
Set your SSD as Factory mode - it should read as 128GB. it is default. Not a problem at all.
First set your PC motherboard as AHCI mode.
Next, set your SSD as factory mode.
Turn on your PC completely. Now connect the SSD at 2nd SATA connector.
Do not connect the SSD with SATA III connector. It should be connected with SATA II.
Please refer to your mothboard manual.

Run the NAND erase tool as viewtopic.php?f=53&t=11390
You need to download the 2nd program.
Please follow the direction on the site.

Then run your MP TOOL and see if it detect the SSD. Default serial number should appear as 1234......
type the firmware version number, product name, serial number...etc
You may get success.

Thanks,
James

Hmm, the SSD is now wasted, it was 4 or 5 jears old, and it produce manny "badblock" errors, and in the SMART list, it will show some error...i think, it have the money in over the jears. The SSD was now to smal for me, so i buy now a newer SSD :)
Thanks for you time :)
