Preferred Solution: Trying to update firmware on Crucial C300...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Trying to update firmware on Crucial C300...

Just a note of caution, I would recommend doing a full system image before updating the firmware especially since you are having issues.
I am not advocating updating the BIOS on the Dell, but have you checked Dell's website and the associated release notes for any/all Bios upgrades?

I've spent my whole day trying to figure out what is going on with this to no avail
What I've Done:
Installed Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit OS on Crucial M4 drive that was acting up and freezing
Continued freezing after installing drivers, stable for 10-30mins then freeze, requires hard reset every time
updated FW to 000F as recommended, same deal
swapped ports with platter drive, same deal
took drive in to where I bought it from, they said all stress tests etc went fine

Pretty much at my wits end. I'm fairly convinced its nothing else since I am running on the seperate mechanical drive fine. ANY suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Specs as follows:
Acer Aspire 8943G-5636
Intel Core i3-350M processor @ 2.26GHz, 3MB L3 cache
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
8GB memory
500GB Western Digital mechanical HDD
128GB Crucial M4 SSD

Have you tried power-cycling your system yet?

Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.Power off the system.
Remove all power supplies (AC adapter then battery for laptop, AC adapter for desktop)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
Replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
Repeat steps 1-4.
Start your computer normally and run Windows.
See if that helps.

I have two systems degradation, performance vs. C300 Crucial V3... OCZ SSD with different SSD drives the performance of both systems with Win -bit is just SSD performance degradation, Crucial C300 vs. OCZ V3... fine there are no issues Just out of curiosity I compared the AS SSD historical benchmarks performance to see if there's any substantial performance degradation between the time frames the benchmarks were done The Crucial C seems to hold its performance pretty well That isn't bad after about five month without TRIM relying on GC The OCZ Vertex on the other hand seems to be loosing its edge after less than a month That's a substantial performance degradation especially for write performance and that's despite the fact that TRIM is enabled Since TRIM does not seems to be able to maintain the performance of Vertex is there a way to regain the lost performance Thanks Here are some of the differences between the systems The system with the OCZ SSD is based on the Asus P P L-E board the CPU is i - K and runs Windows SP The system with the Crucial SSD does not have SP the board is Asus P P Pro with the Marvell chipset for the C and the CPU is Core i

After much effort I got my new Crucial C300 128GB drive to boot when connected to the Asus U3S6 card (and it's wicked fast). Problem is, if I have my SATA II Samsung F3 plugged in, the PC won't boot. I've tried the Samsung both in the U3S6 and on board. The C300 is definately first in the boot order and will boot as long as the Samsung is unplugged. The drives are running in AHCI mode. BIOS flashed to F9. The U3S6 has the latest drivers & controllers. The C300 has the latest firmware. I'm completely lost. It's a pain to have to unplug the F3 before I reboot.
Any ideas?
I know this isn't a Windows 7 problem but if I'm gonna get help anywhere it's probably here

A:Crucial C300 and Asus U3S6 Problem.

I would switch to IDE first. That may help. The maker of my SSD prefers that I run it in IDE. It's worth a try.

Sounds like you have tried everything else I would recommend. Good luck

This is becoming unbearable.
My laptop keeps crashing after I have installed my new SSD (crucial c300, 64gb, fw 0006).

It gives me a BSOD 90% of the time i wake the laptop from sleep.

It works fine while im in windows. But as soon as i put it to sleep, its a gambling most of the times if I will experience BSOD or not.

- Asus laptop F6A
- full retail version Win 7 32, pro
- It is 2 years old
- OS is installed last week

I am really frustated. I have the newest bios, and same bios settings does not crash on ordinary HD.

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

I don't know much about firmware updates as I never had to do it but my DRW-2014L1Tburners are giving me some coasters in vista x64. Not 1 coaster under Nero 6 in xp pro.

I got the driver update listing in the sticky, went to the asus site to check on a firmware update for my burner's for x64 vista and there are 3 hopefully that will eliminate the coasters.

My question is: If I get the updates for the 64-bit vista will that interfere with those drives when I use xp pro ?


PS: I use swappable drives; switching between vista x64 and xp pro.

I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.

It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off. They had me try the download with no firewall on and using just the modem no router. I've used Olympus Viewer, Olympus Master and Olympus Studio Trial version and they all download about the same amount before they shut down.

Following the instructions from the Crucial site, I downloaded the update (it's an ISO file) and burned it to a CD. In the BIOS, changed boot order to CD drive first. Restarted the laptop. No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.

Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?

A:Firmware update gone wrong

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.

I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.

I am now wondering if I have overwritten the firmware of OneLink+ with that of OneLink. Is that possbile?  Is there any other way to fix this?

Hi All: Just purchased a LG GSA-4167B using a USB 2.0 connection via an USB 2.0 External Enclosure. The firmware version that came with the drive is version DL10. There are later firmware versions available, DL11, DL12 and DL13. I would like to update to the latest version, DL13. Can I do it by downloading the DL13 zip file and just unzipping it or will I have a problem because it is using a USB external connection.

A:DVD R/RW Drive Firmware update help

First of all a firmaware update is not a "driver". all optical drives use the windows native drivers and only MS updates that. I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter

I have a Toshiba Notebook with following internal DVD-RW drive: "TS L632D T004 Toshiba".

The problem is, this drive doesen't burn DVD+r DL without failures.
I made quite much attempts with 10 DL DVDs und five different burning suites, without success.
So I guess to fix this failure with a firmware update.

Can somebody tell me where I can get this update?

thanks :)

Why should this issue related to the firmware?

In my opinion you should try removing the upper and lower filters in registry. Just follow this article:

Samsung has recently posted firmware update EXM03B6Q for the 850 Pro on the download site.
I was unable to update via Magician so downloaded the ISO and ran it from a USB drive.
I was one of the lucky ones who didn't update to EXM02B6Q in Feb of 2015 which was a total disaster.
The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

gang I've been web-searching for updated firmware or a way to do it on Hitachi travelstar internal 2.5" hdd... I have one that is producing frequent read errors, but running chkdsk the drive is 'squeaky clean' from a surface standpoint. I was hoping I might update..... can't find a thing

this drive failed the HP builtin [BIOS] HD tests, short and long, and failed the HGST diags tests, short and long [though the SMART status was all rosey ] Specifically the tests point to read-access failures which produce a string of Windows 7 system 'critical' events since the OS timing is scrambled by fetches that return no response.

nagging in the back of my brain is an ugly scenario: what if the issue is with the Mboard component? what would clue me in that the drive interface is at issue ? disc is a lot more likely I agree but it just doesn't feel like an ordinary disk fail

* PX-708A/UF

* PX-504A/UF

A:Need to update firmware? Plextor PX-708A2/UF2??

Looking at this site:

You'll find that the "A" model is the IDE internal drive, and the UF & UF2 models are external USB/Firewire drives.

However, following the link from PX-708A to firmware upgrades did not show a download for the "A" model, only for the others.

My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.

None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before). no longer works.

All three of my browsers no longer work.

Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).

Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.

Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....

Any how, I updated the firmware and I have been running it for a few days now and no connection problems.

A:Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.

Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.

First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  Are you sure you got a BIOS Update from Windows Update?  If you did, that is a scary thought.  Windows 10 is good for giving you OS and driver updates whether you want them or not. Giving a BIOS Update is kind of over stepping their bounds IMHO.
Have you tried this.....
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
If that didn't correct the problem, can you access the BIOS Setup by repeatedly tapping the F1 key when you first power up the computer.  If you can access the BIOS Setup then your problem is most likely an operating system problem with a driver update Microsoft gave you.

We've recently installed a Level One FBR-1461 modem/router on a network with a fixed IP address. We need remote administration but that's not available with the early firmware version installed. A firmware update (via zip/afw file) was sent by Level One tech support in Germany, but not accepted by the router.

File is:

I've tried shortening the file name to (perhaps) a more acceptable length, but the router will not accept the upgrade.

Everytime i try to run the firmware updater it just crashes.
I've tried it in XP, Vista and Windows 7 and no luck in any of them.

Any ideas?

I have been having a problem updating the firmware on my TRENDnet TEW-432BRP wireless router. When I try to update the firmware by going to the device webpage, I click on 'firmware' and click 'browse' to select the firmware file, the internet browser freezes and crashes. Any Ideas?

A:Solved: Router firmware update problem

Doesn't make much sense to me; as soon as you click on 'browse' it really has nothing to do with the router I think.

With your browser if you do File - Open File... - do you get the same crash? If yes you have some general browser problem. If you don't crash this way I have no idea what's going wrong, and would try a different browser.

FWIW I am using the same router and, at the moment, Firefox 10.0 in Windows XP SP3 and have no issues with 'browse' for a file.

A:Z820 Bricked Bios after Firmware update

Hi: If you run the BIOS file again (on another PC), the intruction page opens and you can try this...I'd burn the DOS based flash files on a CD, since the DVD drive may be looking for a CD to recover from, but according to the instructions below, you can use a USB flash drive (formatted in the FTA 32 files system, not NTFS). Just put the files inside the folder on the CD, not the folder. Fail-safe BootBlock Recovery ModeHP Workstations include 64 KB of write-protected boot block ROM that provides a way to recover from a failed update of the system BIOS ROM, for instance in the event of a power loss.  Fail-safe BootBlock Recovery Mode will detect that the BIOS is unusable and boot the workstation in a recovery mode and search the root folder of any FAT/FAT32 file system on any USB media source (hard drive, flash drive, etc.) for a compatible binary image. The binary (.bin) file in the DOS Flash folder should be copied to the root of the desired storage device, and the system powered on. Once the binary image is located, the BIOS recovery process will be attempted. The automatic recovery will continue until the BIOS is successfully updated or restored.

friends I'm installing a fresh samsung 840 120gb. i thought i could put the ssd on sata 1 [not zero] and get firmware via magician on my windows 8 lab mule. no dice. apparently magician ONLY wants to see the ssd on sata zero. it can pull up the drive, but none of the controls work.
soooo... I'm thinking I'm going to have to go with the drive 'as is' to install 7 on a notebook, then as first order of business go pickup the firmware update and execute it.

will this result in sub-par arrangement? best I can tell the fw update is non-destructive.
is there another way?

A:samsung ssd: will firmware update harm anything? magician no use.

friends i have a new samsung 840 to replace a failing drive in a hp notebook.
i wanted to update the samsung firmware first, then do the install of windows 7 x64 but using the samsung so-called Magician, trying the drive on sata 1 [instead of 0] it still cannot properly register the drive. all I get is the SMART info - everything else is neutered. illogical... how does samsung want to update firmware? AFTER the os is installed?
a little guidance would sure be appreciated.

Brainiacs I've had my MN- Base Station since operating flawlessly with our household's various computers using XP operating systems Since upgrading to Vista on most of them I find that Vista won't allow me to update my MN- 's firmware which is currently operating on an outdated update level The problem began when I replaced MN-500 Can't Update Base Vista? Firmware Station: our base XP home computer with an entirely new Vista computer The old XP was up-to-date circa with the MN- updates The new Vista had the old MN- installation disc circa setup info downloaded but does not have any apparent compatibility which would allow for MN-500 Base Station: Can't Update Firmware Vista? firmware updates to the present As a result since going with Vista the MN- 's signal has been intermittent with my laptop I figured that when our base XP computer was replaced with a Vista model all our MN- updates went with the old hard drive Thus the need to catch up with all the old firmware upgrades and perhaps solve the connectivity issue Is Microsoft orphaning the MN- Can someone tell me how to upgrade my MN- 's firmware on a Vista O S Thanks

The download page for this update is up since a few days but there is no download available: And when you switch to another language like German or French the older version 1.14 is offered as downlaod. These bugs in your driver download section happen a lot, please fix them!

This computer came with a Blu Ray disc player BDDVDRW CH30L BC56. So far it has operated well but I recently purchased an SHM SACD the drive does not recognize the disc at all. Is there a firmware update or same way to get the drive to recognize the disc.The drive recognizes all other discs including regular SACD's but not the SHM SACD. I have tried several different software media solutions (Foobar, J River, Korg) that recognize DSD files and SACD's as well but when checking the drive itself in a "my PC" settings it does not show up as recognizing the disc at all. All software players say the drive is empty.Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am able to play the SHM SACD on my Sony Blu Ray Player but want to be able to play the disc in my office on my computer as well.

 Hi @rainwolf127, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I see you are having issues with your SHM-SACD format CD playing correctly. This is not a supported format.Please note that SHM-SACDs are fully compatible with regular SACD players, but they do not play on standard CD players. If you wish to say Thanks for my efforts to help, click the Thumbs up to give me a Kudos.  Thanks.
