Had my 320 ssd for a month, all going well till a usb device BSOD my win7, rebooted to find my disk at 8mb. Waited for firmware update last wednesday as lots of forum discussion. Did Secure erase and firmware update to v1.9 and restored partition on friday. Today usb BSOD again (visual studio blow up, im a software developer) and rebooted to find the drive again 8mb. Anyone else had this problem, looks to me like the firmware update did not fix this type of issue.
Anyone else had a repeat 8mb brick on 320 ssd AFTER firmware update.
, would you be able to provide any additional details?
Would you happen to have the BSOD error code?
Was it a soft reboot (system reboot by itself after BSOD memory dump) or was it a hard reboot (you hit a switch)?
Sort of. I had mine brick on me for the first time AFTER applying the firmware update.
Can somebody from Intel please comment on the importance (if any) of FIRST making the ssd powerless for 30-60sec, right after the flashing of the new firmware, BEFORE using it again.
I did. And I got it first time after flashing it to v1.92.
Firmware Version 4PC10362
Brand new (just one week) intel 320 / 120GB - SSDSA2CW120G3
On my sony vaio laptop.
I bought this intel SSD one week ago. Before I flashed its firmware to 4PC10362, it worked well. Yesterday, I just turned on my sony laptop and tried to launch Chrome browser. But the computer prompted me the browser had been damaged. And then the computer froze , as well as Hard Disk LED kept on. I tried to Ctrl + Alt + Del. But then screen became to black and system prompted me to reboot or shut down. I cold shut down the computer. when I turned on the computer again, the SSD capacity became to 8M!

I am not a expert, but for me it looks like any SSD hw or firmware failure manifest as 8MB problem, so that might be only broken SSD we see after firmware update which would fail due hw
Since I had the pleasure of a bricked SSD today after updating the firmware about a month ago I can provide some information.
>Would you happen to have the BSOD error code?
0x00000 or 00000x0 something very similar to that - I'm about 85% sure that the error code contained just zeros an one x.
>Was it a soft reboot (system reboot by itself after BSOD memory dump) or was it a hard reboot (you hit a switch)?
Soft reboot, I read the memory is being dumped line, and then the reboot countdown started and the system rebooted.
Today I was working and suddenly got BSoD on my SSDSA2CW300G3 with firmware 4PC10362. BSoD was telling me, that memory minidump has failed (I guess, disk was already dead at that minute). After booting from other media, disk had 8 MB and Serial Number: BAD_CTX 00000159. I did Secure Erase, and all my data has gone, for sure.
Dear Intel, what else should I do to prevent repetition of this issue in future and to prevent further data losts?
